WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Book with Anxiety representation

Anxiety rep.png

Hello guys !

A whole month has gone by and it’s time again for a recommendations’ list and this month’s isn’t as extensive as the previous ones and definitely not as extensive as I would’ve wanted it to be. This month’s theme is Books with Anxiety representation because October 10th was Mental Health Awarness and even though I’m a few days late that’s what sparked this post. And while researching for it, aside from the fact that anxiety rep is severely lacking as a whole (which I expected but still surprised me) I came to two realizations:

  1. Anxious POC are almost inexistant in books.
  2. Anxiety in SFF doesn’t exist either.

I will try to include content warnings for as many of them. The ones that I couldn’t find content warnings for will have a (*) in front of their titles.

  1. So many great books on this list! I keep forgetting about Eliza and Her Monsters for some reason. Definitely need to pick that one up soon!
    One book that comes to mind for anxious POC is Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman. I try not to add to posts like this with my own recommendations because I know a lot of the time, the blogger has a reason for not including certain titles, but since you mentioned you had a hard time finding books with anxious POC, I thought I’d mention it. 🙂
