Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s topic should have been ‘books I disliked/hated but am glad I read anyway’. And truthfully, I was having a lot of trouble with that topic since the only books I can think of that I actually hated were the Fifty Shades of Grey books and I AM NOT glad I read them anyway… So I twisted the topic a bit to ‘books that were tough but I’m glad I read anyway’. But then that shifted a bit to ‘books with tough topics I want to read’ and in the end I mixed it all up anyway and made a post on ‘YA books dealing with tough topics’. So let’s just go with that, shall we? 🙂
Basically, these are all young adult books that deal with some pretty heavy, dark topics such as death, racism, rape culture, mental illness and so on. Pretty much all important topics to talk about and discuss, because even if they are tough to read they still deserve to have people be aware of them. Some of these I have read and adored despite the heavy topic. Others I unfortunately still have to read but have heard lots of praise about already.
Here we go!
