Mental Health Books I Have Been Loving Recently

Mental Health Books I Have Been Loving Recently depression anxiety mad house OCD eating disorders CBT self care

I have been receiving a lot of mental health books recently. Unfortunately, due to exams and A-level stress, reading has kind of taken a back seat to revision. (Groan) Thankfully, after mock exams were over it gave me a break, to pick up reading again. 

Who am I kidding? I have three months to learn two years worth of content #prayforme

Although revision doesn't stop, I make sure in my breaks and downtime I get time to do some reading. I love reading, and I always feel better reading then mindlessly scrolling through social media, achieving nothing. 

Obviously, you know me and my passion for talking about mental health and my love of reading. So what better books to be talking about then mental health books. The books featured in this post are so diverse, so I am sure there will be something here for everyone, whatever sort of book you are after!

The Light Jar | Book Review

The Light Jar | Book Review blogger book children's YA lifestyle

When I saw Lisa Thompson was bringing out a new book, I was so excited! I loved her debut novel; The Goldfish Boy. If you remember, back in 2016 I reviewed the book on my blog. You can read that review HERE. As well as it being a fantastic book, it also has a special place in my heart as it was the first piece of blogger mail I ever received. 

Like the Goldfish boy, The light Jar is a middle-grade book. But please don't let that put you off picking either one of Lisa's books up. Both books cover very important themes that everyone of every and any age can relate to. Although they're based on children and targeted at a young audience, they have meaning to everyone. The Goldfish Boy did a fantastic job of portraying obsessive-compulsive disorder, so my expectations were naturally high going into the light jar. 

I always worry when reading the second book of an author whose first book went down a treat and was such a firm favourite of mine. I feel a mixture of emotions from excitement and anticipation. Will it live up to the Goldfish Boy? You will be glad to know, if you were a fan of The Goldfish Boy, you won't be disappointed and if you are a new reader of Lisa's books you are in for a real treat.
