1. Notes on a Nervous Planet – Matt Haig

What’s really affecting our mental health? Matt Haig’s Notes on a Nervous Planet talks about how social media, technology, and the world are all against our mental health.

This is more like talking to a friend than reading a self-help book and is an absolutely brilliant read. It’s structured in nice short chapters which makes it easy to read when you’ve not got much time on your hands.

2. Remember This When You’re Sad – Maggie Van Eijk

I loved this. I was sent a copy to review just before it was released and I still haven’t finished raving about it.

Maggie Van Eijk talks about her worst periods of mental health and how she got through and managed to see the other side.

It’s a brilliant book and straight after reading it I had to buy a copy for one of my friends.

3. Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops – Jen Campbell

This one will have you laughing from start to finish (which will actually only be around an hour, but still!)

Full of stories of things customers have been heard saying in bookshops, it’s a good laugh and definitely something to go to if you need cheering up. And it’s relatable to absolutely anyone who works in retail! I’ve got enough stories like these to write a book of my own.

4. Letters of Note – Compiled by Shaun Usher

If you’re as nosy as me, this is one for you.

Letters of Note is a collection of letters from just about every period. It’s brilliant if you want a good nosy into other people’s lives and enjoy drama and gossip! It’s a coffee table book (but I somehow devoured it in a day)

5. Where Am I Now – Mara Wilson

Any fan of Matilda, Mrs Doubtfire, and Miracle on 34th Street will love this! Mara Wilson tells stories of growing up as a child star who became one of the most well-known characters on our screen.

It focuses on her mental health and experiences and how her childhood has affected her adulthood.
