Top 5 Wednesday- Books with Mental Health/Illness

image

Hi Everyone!

So it’s been more than 2 weeks since I last posted anything. I really wanted to complete my Doctor Who Season 5 reviews before my exams began, however I just wasn’t getting the time write them. Now I’m halfway through my exams and they will finish on the 30th of September. I didn’t want to not post anything for a whole month so I’ve decided to try out the Top 5 Wednesday meme. This way my blog won’t be completely empty till the starting of October.

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey, if you want to join in too, you can checkout the official group page here for more information.

This week’s topic is books with mental health/illness.

So here is my list of books. Most of these books have not specifically mentioned if a character is suffering from a mental illness, however they seem to show some major signs and symptoms of them.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower By Stephen Chbosky

Charlie, the protagonist, shows signs of Depression and PTSD.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

I’m not going to say anything for this as I might spoil it for those who haven’t read it.

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

The protagonist suffers from depression.

The Catcher in the Rye

Signs and symptoms of PTSD among other things.

Gone Girl

Most probably antisocial personality disorder which is closely associated with psychopathy.
