The Hate U Give is one of the most though provoking books I've read this year. Here are 10 more to read if you liked it.

When I first had my children, I had a hard time looking at the state of the world around me.  Call it hormonal, call it denial — I referred to it as self-preservation.  I’ve talked about my love for Fluff Reads before and there is a time and place for a book that just makes you smile.
