great books - April 14th 2015, 12:52 AM

To anyone who loves reading drama and is ok with reading about self harm and suicide these are three great books! 1. Willow 2.the self harmed. 3. Thirteen reasons why. If anyone knows of similar books I'd love to know

I liked the book "Cut." But it IS self harm oriented so it could potentially be a trigger.

I loved the book "The Summoning" bc it was relatable, not in like the magical ways but in other ways it was overall great


What are feelings?
.....How do I use them?
....Can Eat them?
...Or sell them?
.......... No? Well, Then I don't want them...

I've read two of the three you mentioned (Willow, which I didn't much enjoy, and Thirteen Reasons Why, which I did), although I haven't heard of the third. One of my all-time favourite books is 'aimee' by Mary Beth Miller, which deals with some of the same subject matter - although it can contain triggering material in terms of suicide, self harm, and eating disorders. I would highly recommend it, but just read with caution.

I read Willow and didn't like it that much. I want to read Thirteen Reasons Why but haven't gotten the chance. I have not heard of the other.

I remember reading a book about self harm and it was good but I read it so long ago that the name just won't come to mind.

I read Willow, Cut, and Thirteen Reasons Why.

I also read Scars, by Cheryl Rainfield. I liked that one, and the story is based on the author's story with sexual abuse and self-harm. I might reread it, actually. I'm not going to link it because the cover might trigger, so with that in mind, the book can trigger with abuse and self-harm.

Have you read "The 13th tale"? I would recommend this one, too.

BOOKS!

I just started All the Rage by Courtney Summers, which is about rape and is extremely well-written. It's hard to read, though – I've had to put it down a few times and take a break because of how mad at society it makes me.

Scars is the book I read and absolutely loved. I thought it was well done and I read it in one sitting.
