This week's Top Ten Tuesday on The Broke and the Bookish is: Top Ten Books That Were Hard for Me to Read. This can be because they were complex, long, on a difficult topic, not my cup of tea or just books I felt like I had to read and that made me resist. Whatever the reason, I struggled with these ones:
The Edible Woman - Margaret Atwood
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy - JRR Tolkien
The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold
Prozac Nation - Elizabeth Wurtzel
The Vacationers - Emma Straub
These Broken Stars - Aimee Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Beautiful Creatures - Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Going Bovine - Libba Bray
Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi
Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins
These are just the ones I thought of first or that are near the top of my "read" list. There have been countless others over the years that I struggled with - and that's without even considering all the ones I didn't finish! This is a list that could very easily get out of hand, so I'm going to strictly adhere to the ten.
What about you guys? Did you struggle to finish any of these? Which books gave you a rough time? Share in the comments!
