  1. I love family dramas!!!! As long as they are not connected to my family xD I loved Everything I Never Told You!! It is such an amazing book! So dark and melancholic but beautiful at the same time! I will totally recommend that one too!!!

    • Haha, very good point! 😋

      It’s a great book, isn’t it? I enjoyed it but wasn’t blown away at the time, but it’s one of those reads that really stayed with me, and I like it more and more as I look back on it.

      • Totally! It is weird, I think I was not used to that kind of books, but it was so normal, sad, relatable… I don’t know… but you are right, everything time I look back and think about the book I say “what a good book!” haha

  2. I really like the sound of Stay With Me. It’s definitely not my usual fare, but I think I’m gonna add it to my TBR!

  3. Very cool list! I loved Everything I Never Told You and Stay With me. I already own The Tidal Zone and should really get to it soon.
    Recently I enjoyed Everything Here Is Beautiful by Mira T. Lee.

  4. Really like the sound of The Tidal Zone. If I hadn’t read your article though I wouldn’t have read the blurb due to the title. I really must stop having such fixed ideas about covers and titles as I miss out on so much. Is it just me?

    • They say ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’, but I think most of us can be guilty of it sometimes – I know I can anyway!

      Speaking of The Tidal Zone actually, I’m not normally a fan of photographic covers, but despite what it seems, it’s actually a painting – just a very realistic one.

  5. Family dramas are absolutely a genre – and I love them. I’ve only read Stay With Me which I found to be brilliant! The rest are on my TBR except Black Sheep, which I haven’t heard about before, so I’ll definitely check it out. Oh and one of my favorite family dramas are Did You Ever Have a Family by Bill Clegg and We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

  6. A GOOD POST. I love a good family drama. The only one of these I’ve read is Everything I Never Told You which I’m obsessed with, but the rest are already on my TBR! I always keep an eye out for The Tidal Zone in bookstores because I love the cover so much and I want to own it, but they never have it 😦 I guess it’s not very popular in the US?

    As for other favorite family dramas, I second Hannah’s recommendation of Everything Here is Beautiful. Also Dead Letters by Caite Dolan-Leach, Pachinko by Min Jin Lee, and You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott come to mind… I feel like I’m forgetting so many, though. I should make a goodreads shelf for this kind of story.

    • It’s gorgeous, isn’t it? I’m not often a fan of photographic covers, but there’s something so striking about this one – plus I was blown away when I found out it’s not even technically a photo, but a hyper-realistic painting! 😱

      Pachinko and Dead Letters are on my TBR, and I’ll definitely be looking into the others. Thanks for the recommendations 😊

      • I KNOW I remember finding that out and being so stunned. I don’t like photographic covers either usually, but paintings as covers are my favorite thing. I need to own it so I can stare at it intensely in person and try to figure out how the heck someone painted that.
