    The Book Thief has made a lot of lists. I think I'm going to have to look into it.

    Great list. I just finished Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close yesterday. It is sooo good yet so sad.

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I haven't actually read a single book yet on your list, but several are on my wishlist!!

    The Book Thief is such a tearjerker! I think I had too much of an adrenaline rush while reading Mockingjay to cry, but I probably will on my reread.

    The Book Thief and Speak are awesome. I've almost finished Mockingjay! I have heard good things about Thirteen Reasons Why, might have to check it out soon

    It would be interesting to compile all of our lists. I wonder what would be the saddest books across many lists?

    Here's mine:

    Awww, the only one I've read on there is "A Little Princess"... I should probably look into some of the others!
