Top Ten Books That Were Hard For Me To Read
1. Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn- This one had so many disturbing and weird things in it that it was hard to stomach. Cutting out hearts and eating them??? Ummm gross.
2. Uses for Boys by Erica Lorraine Scheidt- Hard to read because the M/C is so young when she starts hooking up with boys. She makes the mistake of thinking sex=love over and over.
3. But I Love Him/Stay- Hard for me to read because both books feature emotionally/physically abusive boyfriends and I went through something like that in my younger years.
4. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold- There are a lot of sad, disturbing things in this book... and being a mother made it even harder for me to read it.
5. TFIOS- Ummm yeah. Kids w/ cancer... it's got to be hard for anyone with a soul to read about stuff like that. Especially if you have a kid.
6. Me Since You by Laura Wiess- Hard to read because this family grieved and just kept on grieving for the whole book. It became overkill on the heartbreak.
7. Perfect Fifths by Megan McCafferty- Ughhh!!! 3rd person, pretentious characters, an entire chapter of haikus, an awkward shower scene... could this have been any more excruciating? I FORCED myself to finish this book because I wanted to finish the series, but it was HARD!!!
8. Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfield- This book was full of adjectives and not much else. I guess like in a literary sense it was pretty, but I need more plot... and it took the girl an hour to walk across a room because everything was being over-described.
9. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta- This book was hard to get into. SO many characters... so much confusion!! I didn't have a clue what was going on until at least halfway through.
10. Invincible Summer by Hannah Moscowitz- OMG what was this book?? Crazy weird family that does icky stuff and goes around quoting Camus because..... well I'm not sure exactly. Reading it was like pulling off a Band-Aid extra slow!
Happy Tuesday everyone!! Oh yeah, and I decided not to include classics and required reading I did back in the day because that's a whole list in of itself (The Sun Also Rises).
