Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Were Hard For Me To Read

top ten tuesday
EDITED TO ADD: Oops, I did NEXT week’s Top Ten Tuesday. Sorry about that. This is why Diana’s the one who usually sets up the TTTs. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is about books we found hard to read, for whatever reason. Some books are just hard to read, but for different reasons. All of the books I included were hard for me to read because they had tough or upsetting or heartbreaking content, but they’re all books that are definitely worth reading. These titles tackle everything from incest, war, eating disorders, and cancer to drug addiction, the afterlife and syphilis (seriously).

Recently, as I was telling Sandie the plot of a book I had read about in the paper, she realized that she had just listened to an interview on NPR with the author. We both expressed an interest in reading it. A couple of weeks later, we discovered that we had each bought the book — […]

Eleanor & Park 2

Favorite Couple: Eleanor and Park

It’s absolutely no surprise that we are huge fans of Rainbow Rowell. Between the two of us, we’ve read all of her books. In fact, without discussing it, we both read  and finished “Landline” within days of each other last week. We will definitely be discussing that book in future posts, but this post is […]
