Top Ten Books Dealing With Tough Subjects
(abuse, suicide, grief etc or something personal hard for you)

This is going to be a tough list because I personally don’t really like to read about tough subjects. I have my own issues to deal with, right, I don’t want to deal with someone else’s. I like to read fluff. So here is the very few books I could think of that might be appropriate for this list. They’re all memoirs.
