Today is World Mental Health Day and I wanted to make this my last book recommendation collab of 2021. With a mixture of Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, there is something for almost everyone. We tried to gather a selection of books with a variety of representation. Anxiety, Depression and Eating Disorders saturate publishing as 'acceptable' and 'glamorous' mental illnesses to have. Whilst we know that isn't true, and all three are very difficult to deal with, I wanted to give my love to other conditions but found it a bit of a struggle to really find representation in books I hadn't read. My list includes: Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Grief/Loss, Addiction/Alcohol Dependence, Eating Disorders, Gender related Dysphoria and mental health struggles. I would love to find more books around OCD, BPD, Schizophrenia, Bipolar, and other heavily demonised conditions, so if you know of any please leave the recommendation in the comments!
Another Recommendations lists for you! This time, combining my love of Non-Fiction and LGBTQ+ stories. I also have a linked video on my channel about the books I have already read of this genre, please go check it out and give my channel a subscribe! This is also a collab with Jaesic of Queer Cult Blog, go check out their blog and the other part to this collab!
Hi Pals and Welcome to a Reading Wrap Up! These are all the NetGalley ARCs I've read so far and my general thoughts and opinions. I have a reading wrap up video up for February and March which includes a lot of these books too, and then a more recent video about my Recent 5 Star Reads with a lot of the ARCs I enjoyed best, and a reading vlog of trying to up my NetGalley ratings. All for you to have a watch and see if you prefer my content written, or as a video! Don't forget to follow here and subscribe to my YouTube channel!
I hope everyone has had a good disability pride month! It's been hard for me for many reasons, but I wanted to bring you a small collab of 70+ disabled, neurodivergent, and chronically ill writers to go and support! Many people on the list are smaller indie writers and some do not yet have a book out but have one coming. One thing I have learned since realising I am also disabled is that people do not listen to disabled people, let alone multiply marginalised disabled people.
