Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten list. The aim is to list ten things within the topic (or as many as possible).
Books dealing with tough subjects, whether it be abuse, suicide, grief, or just whatever speaks to you personally.
1. Going Under By S. Walden - This book deals with date rape/ gang rape and it does so in a way that makes you uncomfortable, but also does not shelter us as the readers from the after affects of this events.
2. Unwind by Neal Shusterman - This book left such an impression on me. It deals with the idea of unwanted children and solutions to the problem in a dystopian fashion. It feels so real, and I still get chills thinking about this one.
3. Falling Into You by Jasinda Wilder - This is such a sad book, but a great book! Death, feelings of guilt, and dealing with grief are all issues that are brought to you in this one.
4. Wideacre by Philippa Gregory - This is a great triology, but it has all the taboos in it. Incest, murder, revenge, and living one big lie. The trilogy depicts three generations and the aftermath of all of these things. It's a great series. I love the third book in this trilogy.
5. Scribbler of Dreams by Mary Pearson - A book about how the children of people who commit manslaughter are thought of. It's a book of forgiveness. I can't imagine having to go on with my normal routine even though my dad was just sent to prison for killing someone else.
6. The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen - This book deals with child molestation/rape and child abuse.
7. Dare You To by Katie McGarry - Deals with a parent having a drug addiction, physical abuse, and having to grow in world full of both.
8. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder - deals with being condemned for murdering the man who rape and torture you and countless others.
9. Rule by Jay Crownover - Deals with the loss of a sibling, son, and best friend and a family's journey and problems caused by it.
10. Wait For You by Jennifer Armentrout - This for me is a topic that makes me angry. Parents who hide that their child was raped and make them feel like it was their fault.
