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
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
Eliza and Her Monsters is one of my faves! ❤
