mental health book bingo TBR

Hey everyone! I am FINALLY making my Mental Health Book Bingo TBR! I have so many books that I want to read that it was so difficult to try and choose which ones I’m going to try to prioritise. (Don’t know what the Mental Health Book Bingo is? Go here!)

I’m going to be tackling the first vertical row.

Eating disorder rep: The Time in Between

Poetry with MI themes: She Must Be Mad

OCD rep: History is All You Left Me

YA with MI: Are We All Lemmings and Snowflakes?

POC MC with MI: Darius the Great is Not Okay

I would also really like to get around to:

Girl in Need of a Tourniquet (Personality Disorder rep, Nonfiction with MI)

First, We Make the Beast Beautiful (Anxiety rep, 2018 release, Bipolar disorder rep, Nonfiction with MI)

Unbroken (YA with MI)

And obviously the group read – the poll to choose the book is up now!


What are you going to be reading? Let me know!

    Have fun doing the readathon! Unfortunately, I didn’t like History Is All You Left Me, but I hope you do! Girl in Need of a Tourniquet sounds super interesting though.

    I just want to say that it’s lovely that you are putting this readathon together. It’s a great opportunity to shout out incredible books that may sometimes get overlooked 🤗
    P.S.: I think you’ve written for Kettle Mag before, no? I thought I saw a piece there and I recognized your name! If you do, let’s be KM friends ahah I’m the book editor and love it there!

    A wonderful TBR! Sooo many of these are already on my own. I really hope to read Darius the Great this year. I know you’ll make your bingo — these books are so important and so often fun to read!

    Good luck hosting Mental Health bingo this year! I wish I could participate, but January isn’t a great time with everything happening at work. For what it’s worth, I like keeping the bingo board around all year to inspire me to read more mental health positive fiction. 🙂

        You definitely are. Mental health issues are becoming more common in literature, but they still aren’t as visible as I’d like them to be. Only by actively trying to read these books will we make a difference there. It feels like a little thing, but it definitely matters. Thank you!
