If you ever want to get inside the mind of a narcissistic sociopath, read You by Caroline Kepnes. I just finished the sequel and am baffled by how it stays on my mind.

Elizabeth is missing by Emma Healey. Written from the perspective of someone with dementia/alziehmers. Very good read
Stop Pretending: What Happened When My Big Sister Went Crazy
When We Collided was SO GOOD! I don’t normally read anything other than Fantasy and SciFi, but this one was worth breaking out of my comfort zone.
Inside I’m screaming.
It took me about 15 secs to realize you weren’t expressing yourself. ?
lol. Well…. I don’t actually tell people if I’m screaming inside 😉 Catchy title of a book, and it was certainly the name that attracted my attention first. Sorry……. i usually do put titles in quotation marks!
It was funny!
Koontz: False Memory
Letting Ana go
Romancing the dark in the city of light. Great book
The glass castle, running with scissors, anything by torey L. Hayden (I believe). I like memoirs when it comes to mental Health books.
Perks of Being a Wallflower, Girl Interrupted, Crank by Ellen Hopkins, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, I have more, but I don’t want to bombard you with titles since you have a nice list going on in this thread. I did write a paper in undergrad about mental illnesses in YA literature, so I have several more if you want more.
The Idea of You by Amanda Prowse
Crazy by Han Nolan or Dancing on the Edge by Han Nolan
A Quiet Kind of Thunder, Am I Normal Yet?, A Tragic Kind of Wonderful, Under Rose-Tainted Skies, Mosquitoland
Good to see so very many titles…I shall have to look a few of these up myself. I read also ‘Gone Girl’ about a month ago, and it is a bit of a shocker but I was also thinking that it is quite a study into a high functioning sociopath.
