Tracking your TBR is pretty important when it’s quite large, haha. Besides Down the TBR Hole and my Netgalley Backlist I needed something to track my physical TBR. 5 On My TBR is a way of keeping track. This is a meme is hosted by E from Local Bee Hunter’s Nook. Every week there’s a different prompt for five on my TBR.
This week’s topic is orange books. I’m not really feeling this one, so I decided to do last week’s prompt. Last week was mental health. So here are 5 books that deal with mental health on my TBR.
Verona Comics – Jennifer Dugan
From what I’ve heard Verona Comics is a Romeo & Juliet retelling. One of the main characters struggles with anxiety that only seems to get worse while getting ready for an important audition. I’ve had this on my shelf for quite some time and really need to read it!
How to Make Friends with the Dark – Kathleen Glasgow
Grief is something that’s different for everyone, but it can definitely be a struggle. Our main character’s mother dies and she has to deal with this event. I can’t imagine how that feels. I know this book is going to break my heart, but I’m very curious. The cover is stunning.
Girl in Pieces – Kathleen Glasgow
Another book by Kathleen Glasgow on my TBR that seems like it won’t be an easy read. The synopsis makes it sound like this book deals with substance abuse, self-harm, and depression. Girl in Pieces has quite a few positive reviews, so I’m curious to see where this goes.
Radio Silence – Alice Oseman
Radio Silence seems to deal with a lot of heavy subjects (this was something I found in reviews on Goodreads). I’ve been wanting to read this book for quite some time and it seems to get a lot of praise. This has been unread on my shelf too long and needs to change soon.
Holding Up the Universe – Jennifer Niven
This author seems to be one that writes books that are really emotional. I cried a lot while reading All the Bright Places. Holding Up the Universe deals with grief and self-image issues and everything that comes along with that. I’ve heard it’s not as emotional as All the Bright Places, but I’ll be prepared!
So those are five books that deal with mental health in one way or another on my TBR. I really think it’s good that these subjects are talked about in YA books. Hopefully all five of these books are amazing! Have you read any of these? Or have any suggestions about more books that deal with mental health? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you!
