These books sadden me because there is no English version. I love reading about [all mental health] eds in different cultures.

The creator of this list left MPA but let me take over since new books have been found/published.

 

Note: these are real (paper and glue) books. Many are available on Kindle, but I did not include any that are only available on Kindle. For a list of ebooks, see Doomsayers list here: https://www.myproana...ster-ebook-drop

I put a * next to the ones I recommend.

 

Enjoy!

Hi, I'm looking for a book and I can't remember the title. none of the ones on the list ring a bell, I read it years ago. I first found out about it on this site but I can't find the post because it must've been in like 2014 (pls don't judge)

It's about two young girls in HS I think. I can't remember the names or anything about the main protagonist. But her best friend has a very thin mom. I know that in some moment they are on a yacht together and they have like a glass of water for a meal. I think the book ends with a phone call when the main protagonist calls for help but she actually dies of heart failure during a run before the paramedics can come there.

That's basically all I can remember. Does it sound familiar to anyone?

whoa, there are so many! i've only read the major ones that everyone seems to have read, and some that were shared in PDF versions on here a while back. can anyone recommend some of the lesser known ones from this list for me to pick up/order? so tired of reading the same books and ready for something fresh!

I know it’s been two years since this comment, but I remember those pdf copies as well and was hoping to find them again... Are you by chance able to point me in the right direction..? Looking for quite a few but Wasted specifically (since apparently my family threw out my copy at some point ugh and payday isn’t until Friday) 🙏🏻

Edit: Omg I was able to find Wasted as a free pdf to download as well as some others, but I’m sadly still missing a few that I was looking for!
