Sheryl Hill Other helpful resources that indicate what books to avoid are these lists:
Trigger Warnings
Books that leave you disturbed

Autumn, I'm working on Wuthering Heights.

Please remove "Reasons to Stay Alive." These books should distract readers from emotional pain.

Thank you for recommending Matt Haig's other books. I'm looking forward to trying them!

Autumn, I think of young adults as college-aged students. Maybe we need separate lists for teens. Is that something you could help with?


~☆~Autumn♥♥☔ Wells Not right now as I am too tired. I should be asleep. I would mess it up.

There's no hurry at all. When you're ready, if you can move books from the adult list to the teen list and add any other teen books you think of, that would be great! Thank you so much!! You have been such a great help!!! Really and truly! Many people are going to benefit from your comments. You are a gem!! Sleep tight! <3
