Top Ten Books That Were Difficult to Read
As we all know, some books are so easy to read. I can fly by some in an hour! But then there are the crazy other deep ones that shatter my heart and I will spend days reading because it's difficult. I usually cry in those kind of books. Here are my top ten:
1. Maybe One Day, by Melissa Kantor
Ugh. This ruined my mood because it was the saddest thing in
the world. Friendship = heart-broken.
2. The Impossible Knife of Memory, by Laurie Halse Anderson
THIS. CRACKED. MY. HEART. IN. HALF. The feelings and emotions that the
characters went through made me realize how hard it is
to handle a situation like that. And the protagonist was all alone for
the most part. :(
3. Far From You, by Tess Sharpe
One of the best books I've ever read but also one of the saddest.
It left me craving for more but also I had a massive book-hangover.
I was unable to read anything for more than a day because the incidents
just kept coming back to me, reminding me.
4. Faking Normal, by Courtney C. Stevens
Gosh, I devoured this in one sitting! *gushes* But also, it deals with such
a tough subject but the author mastered it. A character faking normal? Yes.
5. If I Stay, by Gayle Forman
Okay, you all know that this will break your heart. Damn, poor ADAM.
6. Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson
I cried like crazy in both the book and the movie. Laurie Halse Anderson x2.
She makes people depressed every time.
7. The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak
This will leave you on a wrecking ball.
8. A Monster Calls, by Patrick Ness
I read this in less than 2 hours, but the protagonist is a young boy,
and the events that he had to go through were horrible. I felt so bad. :(
9. Looking for Alaska, by John Green
You'll understand why the subject is difficult once the movie is released next year... or the year after? :')
10. Thirteen Reasons Why, by Jay Asher
I LOOOVVVEEEDD THIS BOOK! Darn, I kind of wish I received the tapes,
because it'd be so heartbreaking and inspirational
at the same time. :)
