This week’s Top 5 Wednesday looks at books with “hard topics” such as violence, sexual assault, mental illness etc. In others words books which made you pause in disgust or wary mode and not the flattering “awww.”
Let us dive into it:
1.The King’s Daughter by Barbara Kyle
A rape scene that made me turn to the other page because I could not finish reading the page of the leading lady, Isabel. To make matters worst it was the beginning of her downhill battle.
2. Wings of Glass by Gina Holmes
Penny is a woman in a domestic abusive relationship who is hanging on by a thin thread for her life and sanity. She is pregnant…
3. Bad Men by John Connolly
Gruesome murder and robberies which seem connected to a similar incident hundreds of years in Maine. Freaky!
4. The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory
Chopping off wives head, plotting which girl should occupy the throne, changing the country’s religion, a teenage wife who had to make love to her husband king who has a rotting foot and an obese continent much to her distaste and many other scandalous plots.
5. Uncle Tom Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
