Top Ten Tuesdays #9: Books Dealing with Tough Subjects

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/meme created by The Broke & the Bookish. Here we list our top ten picks for the topic.

This week's topic is:
Books Dealing with Tough Subjects

Sexual Assault

Child Abuse


Drugs/Alcohol Addiction



  1. I've seen lots of people mention Dave Pelzer's books and man, I agree, those are some TOUGH reads. It's mind-boggling that there are people in the world who could treat defenseless children so cruelly. *Shudders*


  2. I loved The Edge of Never! It didn't make the list this time, but it's definitely in my top 20 :)
    And The Secrets of Ella and Micha sounds like something I'd enjoy. I'll have to check it out.

  3. I haven't read any of these books, but I have almost all of them on my TBR. Thanks for sharing :)

    Here's my TTT post.

    Happy reading.

  4. Easy is the only one I've read and I love it. It deals with assault in a very empowering way. Most of the others are on my wish list and mostly because of reviews you've written!
