Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s list is top ten books dealing with tough subjects. Now, I read quite a few books that deal with some tough subjects so it’s going to be quite hard to narrow it down to ten!
In no particular order.. I just can’t order awesome books!
Pushing The Limits- Katie McGarry
I had heard a lot about this book before I read it. I was worried that I wouldn’t like it and that it was over-hyped, but actually it was a beautiful book, very sensitively written.
Undone- Cat Clarke
This book really moved me. Especially the ending. I was lost for words.
Me Before You- Jojo Moyes
I judged a book by its cover and really thought this book was going to be light and fluffy. Oh no. It really wasn’t.
Just What Kind Of Mother Are You?- Paula Daly
Not an easy subject to read at all, but it was incredibly well written!
The Quietness- Alison Rattle
This book was passionate. It had deeply disturbing moments especially as it was based on history.
Heart-Shaped Bruise- Tanya Byrne
Such a daring debut, a protagonist that has done something bad, yet you end up feeling for her. I love it.
Fifteen Days Without A Head- Dave Cousins
This is such a sad book, but it’s nicely balanced with some humour. It’s much needed!
My Best Friend’s Girl- Dorothy Koomson
My Best Friend’s Girl is very touching.
Wonder- R.J Palacio
I was recommended this by a good friend and I’m glad she did recommend it. I thought it was heart-wrenching.
Into The Darkest Corner- Elizabeth Haynes
A fantastic debut novel touching on an incredibly difficult subject.
This was so hard! I could’ve probably found 20 that I absolutely adore. I’m pretty sure that I’ve missed some amazing books and I’ll see them on other blogs and be annoyed I didn’t include them! Please feel free to link your blog so I can see what’s on your list!
