Review: A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

Review: A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

“They work their discreet types of madness on us, power and pain, and we hold to our truths in the darkness.” I had major problems connecting with this book. Mainly to our lead, Grace. I got no feeling whatsoever from her. In fact, it seemed as if she didn’t have feelings. She was telling the story, but she never had any emotion. Therefore, I felt nothing. I was an onlooker to this story, not part of it. I like to experience […]

She also found herself without the aid of a guy. This […]

Review: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

Review: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

Most of you know that I’m not a fan of classics because I hate historical. I would normally never pick up a classic by choice (except for 1984 or Fahrenheit 451), but my mind was in kind of a dark place when I picked this up so I was looking for something dark about mental health. I was kind of surprised that this one held my interest at all, honestly. But it did! Even though there was nothing happening, Plath’s […]
