TGIF (6)

TGIF is a feature at GReads which recaps the posts for the week and has a different question each week for bloggers to answer.

This Friday's Question:
Taking it Personal: Which books have effected you on a personal level and lingered in your mind long after you closed the pages?

These are the books that come to mind for me:

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher - I don't think I will ever forget this book.  I have recommended this book to so many people because it seems like one that everyone should read.  It shows us how one thing we do can make a major impact on another person's life.  This is one of the best, if not the best, book I've read this year.

Unwind by Neal Shusterman - This one may not be obvious to some people.  This book just constantly makes me wonder if life could really be like this one day?  Could the fight between pro-life and pro-choice come down to this?  It's a pretty scary thought, but this is an amazing and well-written book.

Bitter End by Jennifer Brown - This one was definitely a book I could relate to.  I know friends and family members that have dealt with abusive boyfriends or who are dealing with an abusive boyfriend.  Whether physical or mental, it's abuse.  I have always wondered what makes a person stay?  Why is it that no matter how many people point out what is going on the person with the abuser doesn't see it?  This books explains it all.  I think Brown does a great job of telling us the point-of-view from someone who is being abused.  Someone who doesn't know how to get out and can't necessarily see why she needs too.  Brown wrote a book that so many people can relate to and it sticks with you.

I'm going to stop with the explanations of why, but here are a few others:

My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
