The Little Prince (a timeless classic)
Of Mice and Men (bawled my eyes out when I was 14 )
Sword of Destiny (and all the other Witcher books if I am to be honest)
The Lovely Bones (cried halfway through, was disappointed by the ending)
That's all of them, I think? I'll give one of the books you listed a read sometime soon, been looking for some books to read recently.

I didn't cry, but after I read Life of Pi I was left feeling very uneasy. 'Spoilers' below - quite gory.

Spoiler:
Show
Something about cannibalism, just as a concept, makes me feel uncomfortable. Especially when paired with the stuck on an island / boat / etc -- one of my greatest fears. The guy ate his mother to survive, so with the whole trifecta of eating your parent to survive on a boat isolated from humanity... god what a concept man. With the comparison of him eating meerkats on the island too... which some analyse to mean maggots on the body of his mother. Disgusting book but so captivating. Still unsure whether I enjoyed it or not.

Illuminae (the first book in the series, although I think I was a bit emotional at the time, so it may have made me more likely to cry)
The book thief
A monster calls
The knife of never letting go (Manchee!)
And probably some others that I can't remember right now :cry:

Basically, the protaganist is a middle aged divorced american male who has a huge mansion and trades stocks for a living. He dosen't have anybody else in life and his only aim is to make more money. He has a cleaner come to do the chores, everything is done by others, he dosen't have any friends/family in his life etc. essentially, he has switched his feelings off...

Then he wakes up one day with a pain in his back and a sinkhole opens up outside his house (kind of random but still interesting xD), and he has to get to know his neighbours and decides to help others out of kindness rather than just for money. He also realises that helping others is important and tries to reestablish contact with his estranged son.

I picked it up for 10p in a reuse shop, i had never heard of the author or book before but the blurb sold it to me and i found it a really good read

This sounds suspiciously like the Simpsons Movie.

I write stories, yet I detest reading. It is one of the most boring activities to do. So, no book has ever made me weep.

For me, the book that made me cry was, oddly enough, "Martin Eden". In fact, a very strong story about how a person who was motivated by love and the desire to develop, tried to achieve success, but who did not succeed. I won't spoil, but together with Edubirdie, when I wrote an essay about this book, I realized how sad it is.
