Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature once hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! Each week, a new topic is put into place and bloggers share their top ten (or your own amount) accordingly.

That’s Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger (3/5) – Six school shooting survivors recall the day their lives changed forever and realise that not everything was as black and white as they thought.
Teaching My Mother How To Give Birth by Warsan Shire (5/5) – There’s a haunting quality to Shire’s work that I really enjoy. The beauty of her work leaves you stunned with every word.
