  1. So many books I haven't read (apart from Everything, Everything)! Might i suggest Lottie Biggs is Not Mad by Hayley Long, too?

    TheDonkeyInvasion - A Bookish Blog! | Zombicorns (John Green) Review

  2. yea, that works too! it can be anything that you consider that has mental health in it.

  3. I love this list! I'm so glad you made it. Books are such a great way to help cope with issues and remind people that they are not alone. Mental illnesses have a habit making people feel isolated when in fact there are other people with the same diagnosis. I love Every Last Word! It's one of my favorite novels! I still need to read a couple on this list, but i'm excited to read them!
