Altered Engagement by Nancy Adams
A good woman by danielle steele… nt a sad ending though bt it moved me to tears at many places…infact most of her books are like that

Heartless just finished it! It was sad.
If you love tragedies, try The House of Tides by Hannah Richell.
A monster calls made me cry my eyes out
I can’t I just can’t omg
And then I watched the movie after.
The Dead Zone by Stephen King made me cry like a baby at the end.
I found And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini very sad, to the point of depressing, more so than his two previous books. All three are exceptionally good.
Shakespeare’s tragedies. You’ll love the Bard–bodies everywhere. LOL.
* ‘1948’ by George Orwell
* ‘No Longer At Ease’ by Chinua Achebe
* ‘Things Fall Apart’ by Chunua Achebe
* ‘The Brothers Karamazov’ by Feydor Dostoevsky.

A song of ice and fire series (The books from which game of thrones was adapted).
It ends with us….. it’s emotionally tragic
I still well up with tears when I think about The Book Thief. That book destroyed me.
What’s it about?
A foster child in Nazi Germany. It’s narrated by Death.
I’m currently reading it
But I also read all the light we cannot see and it was the same,one of my favorite
The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas. A young adult fiction about Nazi Germany set in a concentration camp & told through the innocent eyes of a German child. Tear jerker.
“The Dollmaker” by Harriette Simpson Arnow, , “The Book Thief”, and “Station Eleven”, I wouldn’t call them sad but they’re books that make a person think.
The history of love
Me before you. The fault in our stars. The pact.
The fault in our stars
And Love Story (by Erich Segal)
The God of small things by Arundhati Roy..cried buckets! What a book! Who else read it? Were you affected the way I was?
I couldn’t sleep until I had finished the book.? Her narration style is just amazing ☺
The Trial by Franz Kafka
Metamorphosis by Kafka
Atonement. A man called ove.
I love tragedy novels as well, it I don’t like sad endings. They’re more realistic, but they weigh on my for far too long. I’m one of those people who needs time to get over tricky or sad endings. I like tragedies that have that sense of redemption.
I feel the same way.My kids said that I’m too emotional because it takes days for me to get over with what happened in the story that I read. I don’t know why but I always feel I’m part of everything that I read. Sometimes I feel like I am not normal
Tradegy… so Shakespeare?
I do like Shakespeare, but I was referring to tragedies like where everything goes wrong in the characters life

Not tradgedy necessarily, but notorious for his sad endings : Stephen King.
I’m not seeing John Steinbeck or William Faulkner here yet. Most of Steinbeck’s major novels have a lot of tragic element in them, as do Faulkner’s. I won’t name specific titles because, once again, that’s the tendency with the best-known works of both writers. Well, maybe I’ll single out “Of Mice and Men,” which is one of the saddest, greatest short works ever written.
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
