Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Were Hard For Me To Read

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish

These books have caused at least one, if not more, of the following reactions…

Books That Were Hard For Me To Read
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
The most graphic rape scene. Ever.
Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
This book is about a young girl coming to terms with the death of her mother. I decided to read this shortly after my mother passed away…
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James JoyceThere was a moo-cow and Christina was so over the stream of consciousness style.
The Joy Luck Club by Amy TanEh, first time I read a book with multliple POVs. It took some getting used to at first.
Metamorphosis by Franz KafkaHe turns into a bug, it’s not really exciting.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. RowlingHiccuping sobs, so much so that I couldn’t function for the rest of the day.
Romeo and Juliet by William ShakespeareUGH! I loved Shakespeare and couldn’t wait to read “the greatest love story of all time”. The epitome of insta-love.
The Hobbit by J.R.R. TolkienI almost didn’t read Lord of the Rings because I thought it was going to be written like The Hobbit. Much too poetic for a high fantasy adventure.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper LeeThe blatant racism was difficult to read but it’s a necessary dialogue that should happen more often.
ReadingCram10Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
Don’t get me wrong, I love Vonnegut but Cat’s Cradle is especially crazy.

Do you have any books that were difficult, either because of the subject matter or style, to read? Did we have any of the same ones? Did I have a book on here that’s actually one of your favorites? Let me know in the comments below!
