Glad the list is helpful! :)

Mallory I hate to nitpick, but the Bell Jar was published from the 1960's.

I know, but since this is an open list that anyone can vote on, unfortunately I don't think I can remove it...


message 5: by Reineth (new)

Reineth Is it strange that I've coincidentally read most of these books..?


message 6: by Erin Lynn (new)

Erin Lynn The Silver Linings Playbooks isn't YA. It's contemporary adult fiction.


message 7: by Elissa (new)

Elissa I have read almost all these books, and I love them.


message 8: by Lör (new)

Lör K. How is New Moon on this list wth

Definitely going to be looking through these all!

My guess is because it involved depression and thoughts of suicide and reckless behavior due to a manic depressive state.

I know I'm very late to the party here but in case anyone does come back to this list, books that do not meet criteria can be removed by a Goodreads Librarian. As it happens I'm one of those...

Thanks, Amelia! As it happens, I ended up becoming a Goodreads Librarian, and I try to review the list every once in a while. But if you've noticed a book that obviously doesn't fit, please feel free to remove it :)

Annemarie O'brien Could you please add Romancing the Dark in the City of Light by Ann Jacobus?
