Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books Dealing With Tough Subjects

As always, TTT is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic: top ten books dealing with tough subjects. Rather than choose a particular subject, I chose a variety of books about difficult subjects. I don’t read a lot of these types of books so my list is a little short. Generally, I like my books to be more escapist and won’t usually pick something up if it specifically deals with a difficult subject.

1. Cancer

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

2. Homophobia/Bullying

Absolute Brightness by James Lecesne

3. Rape

Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

4. Cancer

My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult

5. School Shootings

Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult

6. Abuse/Neglect

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

7. Teen Pregnancy

Plainsong by Kent Haruf8. All the issues!The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling

  1. Issue books bring on such great discussions. Loved TFiOS, and I have a copy of Just Listen to read soon. I didn’t realize that it was a rape book. Great recs!

    1. I have not…I’ve been hesitant because I know what it’s about and I was worried about it being tough…some day though, I think. Did you like it?
