Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Gladly Throw in an Ocean

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday! Thanks Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl for creating this meme.

This Week’s Topic: Books I’d Gladly Throw in an Ocean

I want to say that this seems like something that can be taken in a few ways. I’m going to take it as books that disturbed me so bad I’ll never read again. I didn’t necessarily dislike them. I just won’t ever put myself through that again.

  1. Lord of the Flies by William Golding: I get that this is a favorite. I just didn’t love it. It really disturbed me in many ways. I think it’s because I’m an empath. I didn’t know it when I read the book. But yeah.
  2. The Power by Naomi Aldermen: The writing was wonderful. The content was just really disturbing. I’ll leave it at that.
  3. Disappearing Earth by Julia Phillips: I really can’t explain why this book upset me so much. It disturbed me though.
  4. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis: I know everybody loves this series. I just really couldn’t get into certain parts of it. I can’t exactly say which. It’s one of those if you know, you know kind of things.
  5. The Girls by Emma Cline: I mean it’s about the Manson cult. Do I need to say more?
  6. The Untold Tales of Dolly Williamson by J.M. Bannon: Can’t remember reason.
  7. the Guest List by Lucy Foley: Was one of my favorite books of the year. Doesn’t make it less disturbing. It gave me nightmares!
  8. When We Were Vikings by Andrew David MacDonald: It was a good story. It really was. There were just parts I feel kind of bordered making fun of people with FAS a little too much. That may be just my opinion.
  9. Dear Maude by Denise Liebig: Just feels a little overwhelming.
  10. Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin: I can’t even remember why this book disturbed me. It just disturbed me greatly.
