Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and The Bookish. Because your admins here at From Covers to Covers love the idea of making funny and interesting lists, we are really excited to participate in these weekly challenges.

In contrast to last week's topic, this topic is one that most people don't like to approach. Books dealing with tough subjects are always hard to pick up, but when you do, it's worth it. These are the books that make you feel, and they tend to have lasting impacts on people. Instead of writing a snippet for every book, we just wanted to let you guys know the subject each book deals with. Just know that every one of these books is 100% worth a read at one point in your life.

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - Cancer

2. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson - Cancer

3. Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult - Bullying/ School Violence

4. The Pact by Jodi Picoult - Heartbreak/ Depression

5. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - World War II

6. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys - Word War II

7. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith - Feminism/ Poverty

8. Something Like Normal by Trish Doller - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

9. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky - Molestation/ Peer pressure

10. Saving June by Hannah Harrington - Suicide

What books have you read that deal with tough subjects?
