T5W: Books With Difficult Topics

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Lainey. You get a new topic every Wednesday, and you list your Top 5 books related to that topic. If you’d like to take part, join the Goodreads group, and add your name to the list of bloggers & booktubers!

Today’s topic is books that tackle ‘hard/difficult’ issues such as mental health. Here’s my 5!

This book is a prime example – because it not only tackles mental health but also coping with murder, death and greif.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Goodreads | Amazon

Perks is a YA coming-of-age classic, and one that I hold very close to my heart. It deals with a number of issues many teenagers face, and I’m sure is almost like a bibile for some readers.

All the Bright Places

Goodreads | Amazon

All The Bright Places is actually the first book that popped into my head when I saw this topic on the list for T5W’s this month. It is a beautifully and poetically told novel that includes issues such as mental health and feeling suicidal.

Another book I hold very close to my heart, and is possibly my favourite YA novel ever. This beautiful novel deals with the death of a loved one extremely well!


Goodreads | Amazon

And finally, we have the only book I’ve ever read that is written from the perspective of a blind girl. It’s an amazing book, too!

I hope you enjoyed this post, I’ll be back tomorrow with a review of With Malice!


May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
