10 love stories that make us cry (you know, in a good way)

There are all kinds of varieties of love. From friends to boyfriends to family and beyond, we’re not about to limit the love stories we adore. Here is our top-10 list of love stories that make us tear up, bawl and use just about every single tissue in the house. Better stock up, Mom!

 

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

What happens when two people who just might be perfect for each other meet on a flight to London? Well, angst ensues, that’s for sure. And maybe a hint of serendipity.

 

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

You’ve seen the movie starring Mandy Moore, but have you read the book? If not, snag this one from the library to read about the ins and outs of Landon’s relationship with Jamie. Sigh.

 

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

Promise, Maine, is a place where dreams come true. But for terminal cancer patient Cam Cooper, can anything make life better for her and her family?

 

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Lena is on the verge of being cured of deliria and matched with the perfect guy. And then…well, and then she meets Alex. And life as she knows it changes forever.

 

The Iron Knight by Julia Kagawa

The ah-mazing fourth book in a series we adore has its fair share of heart wrenching moments for the main characters. But hey, no spoilers here—go read it!

 

Dreamland by Sarah Dessen

Caitlin’s life is in tatters when Roger comes along. Her sister is missing, her mother is an empty shell and the rest of her life? Ugh. But with Roger, she becomes a different person. But is it for the better?

 

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

This tearjerker is as much about family as it is about finding love for the second time. Get a box of Kleenex and a room to yourself—you’ll need it.

 

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Warning: You’ll be on the edge of tears throughout this entire book as heroine Mia makes the difficult choice to stay…or go. With no memory of the accident that brought her to the ICU and some horrific life-changing events, which will she choose?

 

What I Didn’t Say by Keary Taylor

Sure, Jake didn’t think getting drunk at a party was a great idea. But he had no idea the car crash that would follow would rob him of his voice. And he has so much to say—especially to the girl he’s trying to win over.

 

Heart to Heart by Lurlene McDaniel

No doubt about it, Lurlene McDaniel is the Nicholas Sparks of YA fiction. And this story of two best friends is certainly no different. Expect majorly unpretty crying, cuties.
