    Hi! My name is Clare and I'm an all-round book lover that is trying out bibliotherapy for the first time.

    I wanted to try bibliotherapy because, like most people my age, I've got a real, intense worry about the future.

    And because a lot of the conversations I have about my fears don't end positively, or with any course of action — I thought that bibliotherapy might help.

    1. The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

    2. The Girls' Guide To Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank

    3. The Versions Of Us by Laura Barnett

    4. Notes To Self by Emilie Pine

    5. Lolly Willowes by Sylvia Townsend Warner

    6. Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed

    Now, the only thing left to do is start reading and pay attention to how the books affect me.

    Welp, I guess it's time to start reading.
