BOOK TRAVELING THURSDAY: Mental Health

This week’s theme is: Because Mental Health matters! Choose a book that deals with mental health. This is a very important topic, and here where I live, an often overlooked topic.

The book I decided to feature this week is The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer. In America it was published under title ‘Where the Moon Isn’t’

This week’s theme is: Tomorrow is World Smile Day! Choose a book that made you smile recently.  I’ve been reading so many new releases recently, which tend to have just two covers (US and UK edition) and it makes it a bit hard to choose a book I read recently that will have a variety of covers to choose from. But there is a book that I read quite recently that made me smile, even laugh out loud – Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell. This is an amazing collection of funny conversations between booksellers and customers, or just overheard bits of conversation in a bookstore. Every bookworm will appreciate this book.
