A novella set in the Heartstopper universe. Christmas day from several different perspectives, everyone wants the day to be normal but they don't know what that is or how to deal with the fact that it won't be the same. Very hopeful and uplifting book.

Fitz looks pissed at being used as a prop 😂

Challenger Deep | Neal Shusterman

To acclimate the reader inside the mind of a schizophrenia patient, Neal Shusterman begins the novel in second person. Using elements of the second person voice, Shusterman lets the reader know that there is something different about Caden and that this story will be an emotional deep dive into his fears and hopefully his abilities to overcome the voices in his head. Beautiful story!

I related to Jamison in many ways and am appreciative to her for writing the book. It isn't easy living with mental illness, but she wrote in such a way as to be accessible to all.

Enjoyed this book, because who isn‘t drowning? The book encourages you to separate care task from moral obligations.

Audiobook read by the author.
The first half might have been called "Reasons Why It's Bloody Difficult To Stay Alive": obviously that wouldn't sell many copies! I commend him for writing so clearly about combined anxiety and depression. It's an invaluable book, one that reminds you you're not alone in this and that all the weird things you're thinking and doing (and all the crap you tell yourself) is not YOU being mad: it's the depression talking.

Cozy Wood Wick candle and tagged book is getting me through today. I have bipolar disorder and reading about someone else's experiences with the disorder is comforting to me, even though it isn't always pleasant.

SamAnne Candles and reading help with my depression. Hang in there and glad you are doing self-care. 1d
WorldsOkayestStepMom @SamAnne I'm really bad about self-care, and tbh I never considered candles and reading to be self-care, but it definitely is. Thanks for pointing it out to me! 💖 1d
AkashaVampie I agree, @SamAnne. I read to get out of my head. As my tattoo says, "I've lived a thousand lives!" 1d

AkashaVampie @WorldsOkayestStepMom I will probably get more throughout my life. I first need to get one for my family. 1d
WorldsOkayestStepMom @AkashaVampie I have 3 tattoos currently, but I'm wanting a bookish one and one with a cat. Maybe one with both books and a cat! 1d

This has been such a beautiful journey. Eleanor grew on me and by the end of the book I wished she was my friend.

Extremely interesting book. 6 out of 12 children with mental health disorders. The book focuses a lot on the family and the study of schizophrenia. I would have liked a bit more about the parents and their backgrounds.

I have mixed feelings. This was a quick read, and an engaging one for sure. Nora (MC) is easy to like and to identify with, and her struggles are all too familiar. But it felt, a lot of the time, a pretty heavy-handed statement, at times a little cliched, and it kept interrupting the flow for me. What tried to be philosophical seemed a little too self-help, and neat and tidy for what the character was really experiencing. Left me a little flat.
