8-books-that-will-leave-you-feeling-amazing-and-on-top-of-the-world

Hey there readers!!

At the beginning of 2015 I set a goal to read 50 books in 2015. To be honest, I didn’t think I was going to make it when I still had 10 books to read at the beginning of December, but when I set my mind to something I make sure that I get it done!

  50. I Was Here- Gayle Forman

As you might expect from a mental health oriented blogger, a lot of these books are related to or focused on mental health, particularly eating disorders and self-harm. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I am drawn to content about eating disorders especially; however, I recognize that this is not a healthy interest to engage with. With that being said, I encourage you to be cautious when reading any of the latter books relating to potentially triggering content. Don’t read anything that might jeopardize your recovery.

Happy Reading to anyone who decides to read any of these! Let me know what you think in the comments! I love hearing from all of you lovely people out there. šŸ™‚
