When picking up a book, we usually enjoy seeing the characters being in the same shoes as we are, or so we can relate to that character in a way or another.
For many of us, this means finding books that have a rep for whichever mental illnesses we may have; which was my case ! In case you were wondering, mines are all around Anxiety and Depression. Both of which I have been profesionally diagnosed with.
* They are under no particular order, and there’s a mix of some i’ve read and some haven’t gotten to yet and/or on my virtual wanna read *
❍ Reasons To Stay Alive, Matt Haig
❍ Eliza & Her Monsters, Francesca Zappia [My review]
❍ Under Rose Tainted Skies, Louise Gornall

❍ Emergency Contact, Mary H.K Choi

❍ My Heart and Other Black Holes, Jasmine Warga
❍ Notes on a Nervous Planet, Matt Haig
I fear that i’ve most probably missed a few, though I did go through the books on my shelf aswell as thoses in my “Virtual Wanna Read” on goodread. Of course i’m always on the look-out of even more books about that topic ! So please let me know if you have more book titles in mind that might work for me ❤︎
Have you read any of thoses, did you liked them ?
Do you have the same as mine, or is it different ? If so, what it is ?
