Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey on YouTube.
As you might have noticed, it’s not Wednesday. It’s Saturday. But I was very busy this week and didn’t have time to post on Wednesday. Or Thursday. Or Friday. But I have time now and I really wanted to do this week’s topic of Books with mental health/illness. I think book that deal with mental health/illness, especially YA books, are extremely important and I really love how many book there are that have characters that have mental health/illness. And also how many of these books are popular and so many people are reading them.
All the Bright Places has a character that has depression and while I have some mixed feelings on this book, I still think it’s a really good read.
I found this book a little difficult to get though just because it made me really sad but it’s worth reading.
Fault Line is incredibly dark and heartbreaking but it’s worth a read.
This book also has a character with depression. I think Random takes a very, very serious issue and makes it easier to understand and brings a lot of good questions and points up. Tom Leveen did a perfect job writing this story.
This book is about a boy names Leonard who decides to bring a gun to school to kill his former best friend and then himself. It’s one of the most amazing books that I’ve ever read and I highly recommend reading it.
