I’ve spent a lot of time working with addiction recovery charities over the last few years, and, as I was working on a project this morning, it inspired me to share some of the books I’ve read – and some on my TBR – on the topic.

There really are some powerful, honest, inspirational, humorous and moving memoirs, novels and self help books out there. So I’ve picked a few out that I love – or that I can’t wait to read.

Check out my latest vlog for my thoughts on the following:

Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes // My Fair Junkie by Amy Dresner // Recovery by Russell Brand // The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober by Catherine Gray // Sober Stick Figure by Amber Tozer // Hit So Hard by Patty Schemel // Chase the Rainbow by Poorna Bell // The Counsellor by Alison Kerwin // And I Don’t Want to Live This Life by Deborah Spungen // Sing Backwards and Weep by Mark Lanegan
