Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s theme is Top Ten books dealing with heavy subjects, like abuse, suicide, grief… other. Some of these are heavy to me, but not be to other people.
- A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young: if you go look at my review of this one on Goodreads, you will see the emotional breakdown I had on the whole idea of Being Forgotten—for forever. It’s just—I don’t think I’d be able to stand being forgotten. http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/378356382
- Team Human by Justine Labralestier: I know what you’re thinking: “But, Monica, this book is about vampires. Vampires aren’t a ‘tough’ subject.” Well, I beg to differ. Think about it: IF vampires were real, and IF you were given a choice to become one (and you life is not in immediate danger). Think on it: Would you become a vampire? Why or why not? This book made me think about that. My answer is on my review:
- UnWind by Neal Shusterman: The one dude who had a shark tattoo (I forget his name). Man, that scene, when he was getting UnWound… even though I didn’t like him, that scene was… it was intense. I distinctly recall hyperventilating.
- Rage by Jackie Morse Kessler: I needn’t explain for this one.
- Hold Still by Nina LaCour- I read this one a while ago (before I got on goodreads) but I remember that it really touched me.
I can’t think of any more, sorry!
