Book Traveling Thursday: Mental Health

BTTBook Traveling Thursday is a weekly event held over on Goodreads by Danielle and Catia.


This week’s topic is Because Mental Health matters! Choose a book that deals with mental health.

Of Mice and Men Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck


The compelling story of two outsiders striving to find their place in an unforgiving world. Drifters in search of work, George and his simple-minded friend Lennie have nothing in the world except each other and a dream–a dream that one day they will have some land of their own. Eventually they find work on a ranch in California’s Salinas Valley, but their hopes are doomed as Lennie, struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy, becomes a victim of his own strength.
