Mental Health Book Bingo Wrap-up post

Hi, everyone!

I’m sorry I haven’t been much active the last two weeks, but it was the period of exams and I’m still studying for some subjects. I hope I will be able to post all the reviews of the books I’ve read until now by mid-February.

You all know that I participated to the Mental Health Book Bingo and I haven’t read as much books as I hoped. Anyway, here’s the list of the books I read for the bingo. Read More »


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.


The Vegetarian by Han Kang: Marginalised MC with MI; Elderly MC with MI


Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall: MC with +2 MI’s; Agoraphobia rep (ownvoices)


Everything All At Once by Katrina Leno: Anxiety rep (ownvoices)


Far From You by Tess Sharpe: Addiction rep (ownvoices); YA novel with MI


Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson: Free Space


Paperweight by Meg Haston: MC in therapy

ARC August 2017 Challenge


A month ago, I decided to participate in the 5th annual ARC August Challenge hosted by Read.Sleep.Repeat as a way to read most of the eARCs I have. The rules are very simple:

  • Any Advanced Reading Copy counts as part of this reading challenge; your backlist books count
  • No blog necessary to participate, but you’ll need to include some form of social media as part of your sign up
  • Use the #ARCAugust on social media to check-in

Besides, there will be two twitter chats one on August 7th and one August 28th, and they will also host a few authors for interviews and giveaways.

This is my first time participating in a challenge and I’m pretty excited!

Here’s the list of books I plan to read. Read More »
