Hey booknerds! It’s another Top 5 Wednesday post! This is hosted by Sam over on Thoughts on Tomes where you share you top 5 for the chosen topic for that week. You can check out each weeks topic over on Goodreads.
At the beginning of this month it was mental health awareness week. It’s so important to speak about mental health and to get rid of the stigma so people who are suffering don’t feel alone and can get help.
One of the things I am seeing more of is books that include characters who suffer from mental health and I’ve read some really great ones and a few that are releasing soon that I’m really looking forward to reading.
1 The Weight of our Sky by Hanna Alkaf – this book deals with a character suffering from OCD and I really loved it.
2 Are we all Lemmings and Snowflakes? By Holly Bourne – this book was so well done and has a cast of characters dealing with different mental health conditions
3 All the Things we Never Said by Yasmin Rahman – releasing soon and I’ve heard really great things
4 The Million Pieces of Neena Gill by Emma Smith-Barton – another book that’s releasing soon and I’m hoping to read the arc soon!
5 No Fixed Address by Susin Nielsen – in this book the main characters mum suffers from anxiety and we see how it not only affects her but how it affects him too.
So these are some books that I loved and I am looking forward to reading that feature mental health.
Have you read any books with great mental health rep?
