Read from June 29 to July 28, 2011

I think this time of my life was the perfect time to read The Bell Jar. While there were times when I was so so so bored because she is so so so depressing, there were other moments that really resonated with me. Like when Esther was so unsure about what her future should hold, and that she wanted so many things but if she chose just one of those paths she would have to forfeit her chances at one of the others.

It was also really interesting to read about her thoughts and thought processes during the dangerous times of her depression. But overall I've got to say that I'm not really a fan. I'm glad I read it, but I won't ever feel the need to read it again.
