#RainbowBlogChallenge: Day 5 – Feeling Blue.

It’s the fifth day of the Rainbow Blog Challenge and today’s prompt is Feeling Blue. I’ll be listing my favourite books that feature mental health issues. Today’s topic has made me realise I haven’t read a lot of books with this topic. I’m not going to put these in any order though because that’s always too hard and it takes way too long.

I’m sorry this post will be a bit rushed and I can’t get into why I liked the books but I just don’t have time today. I’m really sorry! I wish I had more time to devote to this post because this is an important topic but I’m really busy today.

I also chose to pick YA books with mental health for this post.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I wasn’t the biggest fan of this, mostly because I didn’t like Cadance but I think it should be here.

When We Collided by Emery Lord

I really need to read more books with mental illness. I think I’ve read more than this but I just can’t think of them right now. I know Bella was depressed at the start of New Moon but I didn’t include it in this. I probably should have.

If you have some recommendations of books you’ve read and loved with mental illness let me know in the comments. I always love getting book recommendations.

I love that more books are focusing on mental health because it definitely needs to be talked about more. Having a mental illness isn’t something to be ashamed about. I think the more knowledge people have the more they can understand, accept and help the people in their lives that have a mental illness.

Again, these aren’t in any order. I think they’re important and even if I didn’t like a character I did like the book.

Tomorrow’s prompt is “Royalty” – Favourite royal characters // How books and reading have empowered you. Be sure to come back and see which one I choose to talk about.

Also, Elle from Elle.Biblio is holding an international giveaway on her blog for this challenge. You can click the link here to see what you need to do to enter! Good luck if you do.
