Top Ten Tuesday #27

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Top Ten Books Dealing With Tough Subjects (abuse, suicide, grief etc or something personal hard for you)
It Rains in February: A Wife's Memoir of Love and LossForbiddenPushStill AliceStill MissingA Stolen LifeA Long Way GoneSuch a Pretty GirlThe Men Who Killed Me: Rwandan Survivors of Sexual ViolenceThe Bite of the Mango
Half of these books are fictional and the other half are non-fiction reads. All of them have something to offer the reader but none are by any means "light" reads. All of these broke my heart and I recommend them often. Especially the non-fiction books in the group. I highly encourage everyone to consider reading them!
What are YOUR Top 10 Books Dealing With Tough Subjects?


  1. I haven't read any of these books but they look SO good. I do like to read serious issue books sometimes. God knows why when it breaks my heart! Great list!

    1. I hope you check some of these out! They're all heartbreakers but are totally worth it. :)

  2. I haven't read any of those books, but I tend to avoid books that are too realistic haha. A wimp I know.
    My TTT :)

    1. I used to avoid books like these too but sometimes they really hit the spot and give me that dose of realism I need :) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Oh - A Stolen Life was horrible but such a good read, a powerful story! The recent finding of Amanda Berry and the other two girls in Cleveland reminds me of this book! Another powerful story.
