Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme held over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are looking at books that deal with tough subjects. This was a difficult list for me as I always avoid books that touch on subjects too close to my heart. My list therefore only contains seven books.
This is a brilliant book that everyone should read. Unlike a lot of animal rights books this one is not written in a biased way. It goes behind the scenes in factory farms and looks at the effect the meat industry is having on the world.
This is a beautiful story which includes a lot of historical events including 9/11. Very moving.
An extremely emotional and moving novel which explores the loss of a child and the magical properties of snow.
This book goes into the difficult subject of kidnapping and is told through the innocent eyes of a child who doesn’t have any idea what is going on.
This is so much more than a ghost story. It explores the death of a family member and mourning.
I found this a very emotional read. Imagine what it’d be like to know that the end was coming but not know when.
This book deals with an abusive relationship and the darkness behind the lights of showbiz.
Which books would make your list?
