My mental health hasn’t been great again this month, but I’ve been continuing to use books to keep myself entertained and help myself understand what’s happening to me, as well as give myself things to look forward too.
The Healers, by Ann Cleeves - 4*
The Body Keeps the Score, by Bessel van der Kolk - 5*
The Recovery Letters: Addressed to People Experiencing Depression, edited by James Whitney and Olivia Sagan - 4*
The Starlings of Bucharest, by Sarah Armstrong - this month’s Book Shelf Raiders read. 4.5*
When it is Darkest: Why People Die by Suicide and What We Can Do to Prevent It, by Rory O’Connor - should probably add here that I’m not going to! It just helps to read about research and whatnot. 4*
I’ve been waiting ages for The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, by V. E. Schwab, and Ghosts, by Dolly Alderton, to come through from the library, so I’m excited they’ve finally turned up!
I’m a big fan of Sarah Hilary’s books, so I’m looking forward to being on the blog tour for Fragile. And having devoured the whole of Lucinda Riley’s Seven Sisters series so far, I can’t wait to read The Missing Sister, though it’s really long so I don’t know if I’ll finish it this month.
