Mental Illness Advocacy Reading Challenge 2014

Mental Illness Advocacy Reading Challenge 2014 (hosted by: Opinions of a Wolf)

"Many reading challenges already exist in the book blogging community to address racism, sexism, and homophobia, but I could not find any to address the stigma faced by those suffering from mental illness.  . . .  I hope reading and reviewing books featuring characters struggling to deal with mental illness, whether their own or another person’s, will help remove the stigma faced on a daily basis by those with a mental illness."

The three levels are: Acquainted (4 books) Aware (8 books) Advocate (12 books)

This year I'm going for the Acquainted level at 4 books.

  1. Syndrome E (audiobook) - Franck Thilliez   {Review Link}
  2. Brain Bugs (audiobook) - Dean Buonomano   {Review Link}
  3. Monkey Mind (audiobook) - Daniel B. Smith    {Review Link}
  4. The Reason I Jump - Naoki Higashida     {Review Link}
