Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!
My topic is:
These books aren’t all scary or anything. Some of them were mentally disturbing.
1. The Sun Down Motel
Author: Simone St. James
Ghosts haunting a run down hotel and a possible serial killer had me reading with one eye open.
2. Echoes Between Us
Author: Katie McGarry
I was on edge with this one due to the possibilities of ghosts and the empty tuberculosis hospital.
Author: Tarryn Fisher
There wasn’t one thing about it that didn’t get under my skin or make me uncomfortable.
4. All the Ugly and Wonderful Things
Author: Brynn Greenwood
Beautifully written, but all those ugly things were truly ugly to read about.
5. Nine Minutes
Author: Beth Flynn
Disturbing, but in a good way? There’s Stockholm syndrome involved in this one and a lot of other bad motorcycle gang stuff, but the twists and turns are fascinating.
Author: Tabitha Suzuma
One word: Incest.
7. The Weight of Blood
Author: Laura McHugh
The tone of this book was so disturbing and stressful to me that I was constantly having to take breaks while reading it.
Author: Colleen Hoover
I think what made this book even more disturbing was that it’s written by a romance writer. I wasn’t expecting to feel so… disturbed.
Author: Anna Todd
I know this book/series gets a TON of love, but it has one of the most disturbing college relationships I’ve ever read. Hardin is emotionally abusive and I can’t romanticize his and Tessa’s relationship is romanticized so much.
10. Fear Me
Author: B.B. Reid
Here’s another one that’s disturbing based on emotional, sexual, and physical abuse content. In no way should the relationship between Kerian and Lake be romanticized. Not to say that Reid isn’t a talented writer, though.
