This is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish allowing bloggers to geek out about books and connect with other bloggers. Among the vast array of excellent topics we discuss, this week is the only one so far that I’ve been dreading. The category is “Top Ten Books Dealing With Tough Subjects” (such as abuse, suicide, rape etc.). Personally, I read to escape reality not to get dragged into the dark dregs of society. Even so, some of the books I read deal with these difficult subject matters anyway but are never the primary focus of the story. With that in mind, I’ve altered this week’s category to highlight some authors who I feel “went there” (and totally grossed me out in the process).
Top Ten Books with Cringe-Worthy Scenes:
There you have it, my top 10 books/series with the truly graphic moments that have scarred me for life. I won’t go into details for each book because, frankly, I’ve tried to block most of it out. I will say, of all the books on the list, Obsidian Butterfly probably violated my delicate sensibilities the most. Although they’ve been marked for their cringe-worthy moments, some of these series are still at the top of my favorites lists.
