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 Aednat (new)

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

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?
