    Speechless was a great read. I’ve read The Fault In Our Stars too. Great list.

    I think I’m missing out on a lot of good books. I keep seeing If I Stay – it’s been on my TBR list for awhile now!

    Here’s my list this week –> TTT @ Krista’s Dust Jacket

    I like the different subtopics you chose…I always refer to Tough books as to being books about mental illnesses or maybe family problems, but I should really broaden my view :) Also, totally agree with How to Save a Life! Just read it recently and it was so good!

    I like that we both included Unbreak My Heart. And I know we chose it for the same reasons. It’s the first book I read and loved dealing with cheating by the MC. The fact that she made us care for her.. wow. Nicely done.

    Love how you chose all different subtopics! I had forgotten about suicide; loved Thirteen Reasons Why!

    Wow, great choices. We both have How to Save a Life and Thirteen Reasons Why on our lists. I loved the beautiful sadness of If I Stay as well. I bet the rest are as thought-provoking and can’t wait to read them – thanks for sharing!

    UNBREAK MY HEART is the only book from your list that I’ve read, but that’s okay – I can see that I have some excellent books in my future. And I love how varied everyone’s picks are this week. Thanks for sharing yours!

    TFIOS is an amazing read! As is Speechless! These are the only two from your list that I have read but I have added a fair few of these to my TBR pile now as well. I love books that really get into the nitty gritty of things and break the mold. Thanks for sharing your favourites.
