Top Ten Tues #3: Difficult Reads


I published this before seeing other posts but after I did I'm updating this post. I'm splitting this into two parts.


Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson - Its hard for me to read about eat disorders and such. But recently I read other books with similar topics, so hopefully one day I will try again.

Beloved by Toni Morrison - it's a classic and I hope to try again.

Persuasion by Jane Austen - again, a classic and I hope to try again.

Stolen by Lucy Christopher - I DNFed it but with everyone giving praise I want to try again. I think I just got bored of the dessert scenes.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini - I have it. Lots of people said it's really good but also really sad so I've been avoiding it.


The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - it just wasn't my kind of read.

Of Mice and Men - an okay and sad read.

Brave New World - my first dystopian read and I didn't like it.

Unwind by Neal Shusterman - my second dystopian read and I enjoyed it.

Psst... I don't have a number 10. But I see lots of people put historical fiction. I could have, too, but it's my number one favorite genre.

Thank you,

Is this a list of over the past year, or random?

I've read Stolen, Beloved and The Kite Runner- and urge you to finish them! Defo worth your time!

This is random, there is no time stamp but thank you for letting me know!

I found stolen quite tedious as well! All the description I just thought was unnessecary
I definitely agree with Unwind! And Of Mice and Men, so depressing! I hadn't even heard of Stolen, but it is now on my TBR after reading the praise. Great list!

Stolen is one of my favourite reads this year. The subject matter is difficult, but the characters are so interesting!

One day I hope to get through one of Jane Austen's novels. I've read half of two of them (but never two halves of the same one)!
