Today, Mental Health Awareness Month, hosted by Leah of Uncorked Thoughts and Ula of Blog of Erised, begins! These are the books I'm planning to read this month:
Amy and Matthew by Cammie McGovern
Breaking Butterflies by A. Anjelais
If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick
I've also read elsewhere that Just Listen by Sarah Dessen and Looking for Alaska by John Green would also work, but I'm not quite sure how. On MentalHealth.org.uk, it says that Autism and Tourette's come under mental health, so I might also read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon and When Mr Dog Bites by Brian Conaghan. And if I have time afterwards, there's Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.
I thought I would start off the month by linking to reviews of novels covering Mental Health I've written in the past. Looking through, I was surprised to see I had read quite a few! Maybe there will be some here you yourself could read for the event? Click on the images to be taken to my reviews.
