Book Hunting Expeditions Mentally Yours Reading Themes

[BHE 254] #MentallyYours Library Loot

Myra here.

Every Sunday, we share the books that have found their way into our hands and hearts through covert or legitimate means. This week, I am happy to be sharing titles that I have hunted down from our libraries given our current reading theme: #MentallyYours – and a few that simply begged for me to borrow them.

Robot Dreams by Sara Varon, Hyperbole And A Half by Allie Brosh.

I Had A Black Dog: His Name Was Depression by Matthew Johnstone, Darkness Visible: A Memoir Of Madness by William Styron. 

Probably Nothing: A Diary Of Not-Your-Average Nine Months by Matilda Tristram, Thin Slices Of Anxiety by Catherine Lepage.

The Hospital Suite by John Porcellino, Dotter Of Her Father’s Eyes by Mary M Talbot and Bryan Talbot.

  1. Hyperbole and a Half has the best lighthearted portrait of depression I have read so far 🙂 LOVE THAT BOOK TO PIECES. My review is coming up next week on my blog 🙂

    I just requested Tangles and Darkness Visible from my local library. Too bad they didn’t have Probably Nothing and I had a black Dog! Thanks for sharing this list!
