The other day I talked about young adult books with disabilities that I would recommend that you read and today is the books that I want to read. In 2017 I really want to read more books that do feature disabilities and here is my list to start.
Mental Health TBR
Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall: This book features a protagonist with agoraphobia and OCD, where she cannot even step outside the front door for groceries. One of the main reasons I want to read this book is because it’s by an #ownvoice author.
Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne: This book features a protagonist with OCD that is about to enter college and all she wants is for her life to be normal. Am I Normal Yet? has been on my list since it was released and I just haven’t gotten my hands on it. However, I recently got it for Christmas and cannot wait to get into it.
Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes: This book has been on my TBR for many other reasons and it has only recently come to my attention that it also features a protagonist with anxiety and OCD.
Physical Disabilities TBR
The Season of You and Me by Robin Constantine: The male protagonist of this one is newly paralysed and confined to a wheelchair. It’s very rare that you see this in YA and it’s the reason that I have to pick it up. I’ve heard some pretty great things about this one and cannot wait to dig in.
Far From You by Tess Sharpe: One of the main reasons I want to read this book is because there is a sense of chronic pain that is featured. It’s again rare to find books that do explore it.
I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios: I’ve seen this book around for a while, but only recently I read the synopsis and I have been intrigued ever since. I’ll Meet You There features the male lead who has lost his leg in Afghanistan.
