Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday! This fun weekly meme was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join in the fun and be apart of the #T5W … you can find all the details at the GoodReads page.
This week’s topic is Top 5 Books with Mental Illness.
This week’s topic is going to be a hard one for me. I haven’t really read too many books with characters that have a mental illness. I’m not the biggest fan of contemporary, therefore my picks all come from books that I have read this year. So let’s just get into it then!
5. The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand
The main character’s brother commits suicide, so there is one instance of mental illness. And because of his death the main character becomes depressed and goes through her own internal struggles with life.
4. Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
3. The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson
2. My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
1. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
I hope you enjoyed my Top 5 Wednesday this week. So I know there are other great books out there that speak on mental illness and I am hoping I get to learn about them from other Top 5 Wednesdayers. Which books would you have chosen?
Until next time,
