Top Ten Books Dealing With Tough Subjects


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

15 Days Without A Head

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!

  1. Pushing the Limits is an amazing book. I wish I could read it for the first time all over again. I haven’t read any of the other, but I’ve heard some really great things about Me Before You and I’ve seen Wonder a few times while browsing online/at the bookstore.

  2. Pushing the Limits and Wonder are already on my TBR list, but I’ve never heard of the others. Thanks for including the links to Goodreads – that made it so much easier for me to add them to my TBR list. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Pushing the Limits would have totally been in my list. Read it last week, along with Dare You To, and I fell in love with Katie’s writing and the stories she had to tell. Waiting for Isaiah and Rachel’s story, which is probably gonna hurt as much as Noah and Echo, and Beth and Ryan’s did..

  4. I’ve read the opening of Wonder and really need to find the time to get back to the rest of it. Other than that, In the Darkest Corner is the only one I’ve seen before. Thanks for the introduction to the new titles!

Comments make me smile and I love to reply to them! Thanks for visiting today!
