Top Ten Tuesday- Books feat. Tough Subjects

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (May 14th), I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic:

Top Ten Books on my 2013 TBR Dealing With Tough Subjects

I've already done a list featuring books about death/suicide, so now I'm going to share with you books on my TBR List for 2013 that feature similarly tough stuff

1.  Thin Space By: Jody Casella- Death of twin

2.  Meet Me at the River By: Nina de Gramont- Taboo relationship and death of step-sibling

3.  The After Girls By: Leah Konen- Friend's suicide

4.  Premeditated By: Josin L. McQuein- Cousin's suicide attempt

5.  The Namesake By: Steven Parlato- Father's suicide

6.  Then You Were Gone By: Lauren Strasnick- Death of friend

7.  Fault Line By: Christa Desir- Sexual assault

8.  Me Since You By: Laura Wiess- Father's death

9.  Hurt By: Tabitha Suzuma- Boy with a disturbing secret

10.  My Life After Now By: Jessica Verdi- Girl with HIV

So most of these aren't out yet, but there are a few that have been released already... I just haven't gotten to them yet.  So are there any of these that you've been waiting on to come out, or any that you read already?

**I can't wait to see what you guys put on your Debbie-Downer lists this week :)


  1. I've not heard of most of these before but they sound interesting. I like that you found ten different tough situation books.

    And Debbie Downer lists? I like that :P

  2. I'm really excited for Premeditated; I just got hold of the author's debut, Arclight. Nice list. :D

  3. Ooh, I just purchased myself a copy of My Life After Now. I hope it's great! It sounds so heartbreaking. Also, Laura Weiss is one of my favorite authors, so of course I have her newest title on my TBR list. Great choices this week!

  4. I really enjoyed THEN YOU WERE GONE. I hadn't heard Weiss was coming out with a new book and just raced to add it to my TBR list. Thanks, Michelle! :-)

  5. So many of these book sound great! I'll have to add them to my TBR!

  6. Your list has a bunch that I haven't read, but own... FAIL on my part! I don't have FAULT LINE, but I want to read it so badly! Definitely one I might preorder!

  7. I haven't read any of those books, but I'm glad you enjoyed them.

    My TTT:

    1. LOL yeah I haven't read them either they're on my TBR

  8. Debbie Downer list is super accurate this week! Love it. So many good choices! I had a tough time choosing, cause these books are all so meaningful!

  9. I am pretty much excited for all of these because I am apparently a dark and depressing person who only reads dark and depressing book. I actually think I'm an annoying optimist so I don't know where my love of dark books comes from!

    I've had My Life After Now for a while and haven't read it. I was so excited for it, but I've read some mixed reviews.

    My TTT list

  10. I look forward to your reviews of these! I definitely need to expand my reading horizons because of the love for the "tough stuff" books out there.

  11. Awesome list! It's definitely made me add some to my tbr

    Thanks for stopping by Swept Away By Books!
