Book Travelling Thursdays

I actually came across this weekly book meme about two months ago but every week I was unable to to think of a book that met the requirement for that particular week’s theme. However this month’s themes are all great so I’ve decided to finally make my first post!

For those who don’t know, Book Travelling Thursdays is a weekly theme created by thegirlwhoreadtoomuch. Every week you have to choose a book that fits that week’s theme and post a picture of it’s original cover, the cover from your country, your least favourite cover and your most favourite cover along with the reason why you chose that particular book. For more information you can checkout its goodreads page here.

This week’s theme is ‘Because Family Matters choose a book that features your favorite bookish family!’.  Continue reading

Top 5 Wednesday- Books with Mental Health/Illness

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.

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.

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.

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