Top Ten Books That Were Hard To Read

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovelies over at The Broke and the Bookish

Cozy Rainy Day Reading (or sometimes pinning) lol

Moby-Dick; or, The Whale
Moby Dick by Herman Melville
I just really really hated this book. I could not get into it for the life of me and my English teacher hated that I hated it. She thought it was the perfect book and thought I was crazy for not liking it. So much for being able to like what we want to, huh?

The Fault in Our Stars
The Fault in our Stars by John Green
This one for obvious reasons. If you've read it you know what I'm talking about, if you haven't, read it then come join the club of people who were heartbroken after reading this book.

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
I can't actually think of any other books that deal with incest. I was apprehensive about even picking up this book, but Tabitha Suzuma approached the subject with such eloquence that I wasn't reading the book and yelling "This is soo wrong!!!" the entire time...I actually got the other side of the story and why what happened happened. The ending was tough to get through though.

The Diary of a Young Girl
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
Anne Frank is one of my favorite books. But I can't help that each time I pick it up to read it that something will change before the end and they'll make it out this time. That doesn't ever happen.

Living Dead Girl
Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott
Being the story of a little girl that was kidnapped and held captive against her will for years and years I think you can imagine why this was hard to read.

Bridge to Terabithia
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
I can't say anything without spoiling the story, and if you haven't read it I don't want to do just know this one gets hard. But I love it soo much.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The things that Charlie has to deal with is incredible. All the while feeling like no one sees him, that no one cares enough to see him. It's a tough situation that just keeps getting tougher for him. And the things that come out about him in this book are deep. They just make you sit back and go "Oh, that's why he was acting like that." It's definitely a book that makes you realize you can't judge someone purely off what you think you see. There could always be underlying issues.

The Winter of Red Snow: The Revolutionary War Diary of Abigail Jane Stewart, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, 1777 (Dear America)
Dear America: The Winter of Red Snow by Kristiana Gregory
This book gets very descriptive about what the soldiers and nurses went through during the Revolutionary War. It's very gruesome, but factual, so it was a bit tough to get through.

Hold Still
Hold Still by Nina LaCour
Hold Still deals with suicide. Tough subject.

Stay by Deb Caletti
This is the story of an abusive relationship. Coming from an abusive relationship myself, it kind of hits home.

What was on your list this week?


  1. Hello! I recently took the plunge and started reading Moby-Dick, and I agree with you, it is hard work. I'm about 15 chapters in, found it less incomprehensible than I had expected, but am now feeling no urge to pick it up. If I haven't got into it by the time it's due back at the library, I'm not going to bother renewing it, even though it's very rare for me not to finish a book.

  2. Yeah, The Fault in Our Stars is on my list, too. Such an emotional rollercoaster.

  3. I have no desire to read Moby Dick. It just doesn't appeal. Actually, it sounds like a tough slog. Why would I want to do that to myself if I don't have to?

  4. cheap ted baker dresses think the world is so beautiful, they should ted baker uk sale settle, and then they returned to nature, think of unhealthy joke.
