It’s BTT time! This is a weekly meme created by Danielle at Danielle’s Book Blog and Catia at TheGirlWhoReadTooMuch. You can find all of the information you’ll need to participate on the Goodreads page.
This week’s topic is Because Mental Health matters! Choose a book that deals with mental health. I really shocked myself because I swore that I’ve read a whole bunch of books surronding Mental Health but when I actually went and looked at my Goodreads shelf, I realized that I haven’t read as many as I thought. That’s something that I’m really going to focus on next year and make it a priority in my reading because I feel Mental Health books are really important and informative as well.
SO let’s get started!
My choice for this week is Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang. I read this book last year for Anti-Bullying week as part of a readathon I believe and I loved it. The narration is very interesting and the plot is set up with flashbacks from the past as well as the present moment. The story is very emotional and it hit me quite hard to be honest. It deals with a main character struggling with depression and kind of takes a look at how she got to the point of wanting to kill herself. Definitely recommend this book.
Original Cover & My Country Cover & My Favorite Cover
This cover isn’t the greatest thing in the world when you look at it alone. But when compared to the story that’s inside, it’s so incredibly accurate. Do yourselves a favor and go read the synopsis and then tell me that this cover isn’t exactly the way it’s supposed to be. I love the cover and the equations and the little car with that pop of color. And I’m super glad most editions have kept this cover.
My Least Favorite Cover
And then the one cover that decided to deviate and totally ruined everything. Russia, why? This is not a romance, not that there isn’t hints of it because it’s YA, but that is not what this is about at all. This just gives the wrong kind of message about this amazing book and that really angers me not only for the readers who will be disappointed but for the book because it doesn’t deserve that.
So that’s it for my choices! Let me know if you’ve read this book and if not, please read it! It’s amazing and you won’t be disappointed. Let me know what you think of the covers and if you agree with my favorites. Thanks for reading. See you on my next post!
