Mental Health Book Bingo TBR List

Though I know I’m a little late, but here’s my TBR for the Mental Health Book Bingo created by What The Log Had To Say to increase people’s awareness of mental illnesses.

I think it’s important when we read books that deal not only with mental health, but also with racism, LGBTQ+ and other things to keep our mind open to how different is this world and to shatter the stigmas surrounding mental illnesses.

Along with the books, I will indicate the prompts I will cross with them, hoping I will manage to read all of these and more if I have time because, as they say, the more the merrier! I already read and reviewed The Vegetarian by Han Kang, but I will include it anyway.

  1. That looks like an amazing TBR list especially with the diverse, ownvoices and mental illness centered books you’ve selected. The Vegetarian is so good ❤ I've been recommended Paperweights so much, I think that's one I'll be looking forward to. Also, Girl Against The Universe looks interesting 🙂
