I‘m in love with this book, I feel very seen. I love it so much I bought a copy for my best friend and I wasn‘t even 20 pages in. This is how my best friend and I deal with our illnesses, and trauma, through humor. So this is perfect for us!!

Linsy Ditto!!! This was my first of Lawson's and I've been a devotee ever since. Before her, I never felt like anyone understood, or like I knew how to articulate my mental ilnesses. I'm so glad you flund her!!! 4mo

I just started this book and it‘s good so far. I like that it‘s broken down into different nurses stories, it‘s actually helping with my depression because I don‘t have to read the entire book, I can read one chapter at a time and have the whole story for that person, so I can read a little when I feel up to it and not be upset that my depression is making it hard to even read.

Hello, so, I have MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) and I am wondering if anyone knows any books on depression or that have characters with depression…. (I‘m hoping to find something to relate to) I‘ve read the tagged book already, but that‘s it. Any ideas would be much appreciated, thank you.

jlhammar Not exactly MDD, but this one deals with mental health struggles and I loved it. Relatable and funny. 4mo
jlhammar This one was also a fantastic read. 4mo
Soubhiville I‘m not sure about MMD either but all 3 of Jenny Lawson‘s books are humorous memoirs which dive heavily into her struggles with depression. I adore her. First one is 4mo

Soubhiville Currently reading this memoir in which the author deals with depression 4mo
marleed Ohh, I‘m sorry and hope the recommendations help. I was just about to recommend Jenny Lawson books when I saw @Soubhiville already gave her a shout out. 4mo
Insightsintobooks @jlhammar thanks for the recommendations, I‘ll look into them. @Soubhiville Thank you, I‘ll look into those as well! @marleed thanks, I hope they help too. 4mo
Insightsintobooks @Ruthiella it was a good memoir! 4mo
squirrelbrain I concur with @jlhammar about Sorrow and Bliss and Everyone, although I much preferred the first one. 4mo
Sleepswithbooks I have this one in my TBR list to read. If you‘ve read any of her books you know she has depression and writes everything from a place of truth and humor. 4mo
BookDragonNotWorm I'd recommend Jenny Lawson's books. She puts a humorous spin on her illness, making hers the only books on the subject I've ever read that haven't made me more feel depressed. 4mo
CarolynM This one is an M/M romance, so it may not be your cup of tea, but the MC narrator has Depression disorder and it is a plot point in the story 4mo
Insightsintobooks @CarolynM I‘m not much into romance, but thank you. 4mo
CarolynM This one is an oldie but a goodie about a man with bipolar disorder 4mo

Reading the Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll at home as I heal from surgery I had yesterday to remove Precancerous cells. I like it so far.

Just finished this book, I‘m not sure how I feel about it. I liked the ending, but it wasn‘t what I was expecting from the blurb. It was okay, but I‘m not sure I‘d read it again.

I really shouldn‘t be allowed at Barnes and noble lol. Not pictured are some other books I got that might be good for the #hauntedhollowswap and #basicwitchswap (I know the matches for these haven‘t been sent so if the person I get doesn‘t seem like they‘d like the ones I picked up today I‘ll just keep them for myself)

I did it, I joined #BOTM! I heard that their publishing of it is below what you would get at a normal retailer so I‘m hoping this isn‘t the case! I‘m excited to get my first book!

swishandflick The only notable difference that I've personally seen are the occasional books that have texture incorporated in the publishers version of the cover that isn't there for the BOTM version. 8mo

Is book of the month worst the price?? Thank you!

Literary_Siren Yes and no. I stopped subscribing when I was having to skip a lot because I wasn‘t interested in what they were offering. That was a couple years ago. Might be better now. 8mo
sprainedbrain I‘ve started and stopped a few times over the years, but I‘ve been steady for a couple of years now. Look at previous selections, and if they seem like your kind of books, I think it‘s definitely worth the price for nice, pretty hardcovers. 😃 8mo

So, I think I posted this before, this has nothing to with books, well a few posts do, but I started a blog that talks about my healing journey from human trafficking and domestic violence but when I got a new phone I didn‘t save the login info for the old one so I started a new one and have been posting fairly regularly. Since April is sexual assault awareness month I thought I‘d share. www.beautyfromashesshine.Wordpress.com
