Hunter | 2 comments Hey, guys!
I've recently been out of the loop with reading recently and I'm looking to get back into it! Do you have any suggestions for books at all? I really enjoyed All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven, and am looking for any books like it or anything you guys really liked reading recently. I'm open to any and all suggestions :)
Thanks so much!

Mariah Renee Cisneros (mariahreads) | 18 comments It's kinda a funny story by Ned vizzini


adorkylibrarian | 12 comments I really liked Made You Up by Francesca Zappia and We Were Liars by E. Lockhart.

Perks of Being a Wall Flower by Stephen Chbosky is also a great short read.

Ilyssa Guerra | 32 comments I agree Perks of Being a Wallflower is a great read. The new John Green book Turtles All the Way Down also is good and focuses on mental health.

Elaine Margarette (elaineyym) | 14 comments I know some of these are already mentioned before but here goes:

my favorite ya books about mental health are Underwater by Marisa Reichardt (protagonist with PTSD), Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes (also PTSD), Die For You by Amy Fellner Dominy (girl tries to get away from boyfriend's alarmingly obsessive attachment; I recommend this!), Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone (about OCD and one of my absolute faves!), and Made You Up by Francesca Zappia (schizophrenia and also one of my absolute faves).

message 20: by Sophie (new)

Sophie (paperback_addiction) | 2 comments History Is All You Left Me discusses mental health a lot! I’ll warn you now though, you will cry the whole way through it. It’s a sad one!
