Top 5 Wednesday – Mental Illness

Top 5 Wednesday!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Lainey at GingerReads and Samantha at Thoughts on Tomes.  You can find the group on Goodreads. 

This week’s topic: 

May 29th: Books featuring Mental Health
— In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month 

I thought this one would be way harder than it was.  I don’t read a whole lot of contemporary which is where this topic is more prevalent.  Fantasy and Scifi don’t have a great reputation for doing it well, and I would agree with that.  But I have noticed that they are getting better at being more diverse, so we shall see.


Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia –  Anxiety

Eliza and Her Monsters


Any Second by Kevin Emerson – Anxiety and PTSD

A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavalaro – Drug addiction, PTSD, Anxiety

My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbalestier – Sociopath

Challenger Deep by Neil Shusterman – Schizophrenia

I would recommend any of these.  They were all excellent books.  Don’t forget to stop by the Goodreads group to see what others are recommending.
