Top Ten Tuesday #7

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely people at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is -

Top Ten Books Dealing With Tough Subjects

This list took me ages to put together because I could not remember what books I'd read that would fit the criteria! It's actually a Top Nine list and the majority of these titles are from before I started blogging.

Middlesex - Jeffrey Eugenides

Room - Emma Donoghue

Wonder - R J Palacio

Speak - Laurie Halse Anderson

Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher

The Fault In Our Stars - John Green

If You Find Me - Emily Murdoch
Wintergirls - Laurie Halse Anderson

Before I Die - Jenny Downham


  1. So many great books on this list. I'm particularly partial to Room and Speak. I need to get off my tookus and read Middlesex.

  2. I've seen TFIOS on lots of lists today. It's on mine, too, because it's such a beautiful, authentic look at cancer. I laughed, I cried, I couldn't stop reading ...

    Happy TTT!

  3. I've heard great things about If You Find Me, but haven't read it yet. TFioS is sooo sad. Great list!

  4. I looooved If You Find Me!! It was so terrible and heartbreaking but yet so beautiful. And it ended in an optimistic way, which is a great bonus. It's an absolute must-read.
    I really want to read Thirteen Reasons Why.
    Great picks!!

  5. I have added Middlesex to my to-read list, and I have long wanted to read pretty much anything by Laurie Halse Anderson. Great list!
