Amiable
Ask Again, Yes: A Novel | Mary Beth Keane

Pickpick

I know some people have complained that this book appears to lack a plot, but it‘s a pick for me. I like character-driven novels where you can see the evolution of relationships and personalities over time. I also thought the dialogue and actions were realistic to the characterizations. Not every book can have a happy ending – just like life. Well done.

Amiable @ljuliel You might like this one, if you haven't already read it. The characters are real--flaws and all. Not a thriller. 1d
ljuliel Thanks. 💕. I‘ll give it a shot. I might be mistaken but I think I have the CD audio of this at home. I‘ll have to check when I get back. 1d
j9brown I thought this one was excellent. 1d

#top10ofthedecade #fictionedition I had such a great time looking back through my goodreads to narrow this list down.

Amiable Loved “Station Eleven” —still think about it . 2d
JanuarieTimewalker13 I wish I had gotten A Little Life into this decade!! But I‘m not going to make it! So I‘ll be starting the 2020s with that gem! Can‘t wait! 2d

Cinfhen Nice mix of genres!!! My list tended to be heavy on HF with a dash of contemporary fiction 1d
CoffeeK8 @JanuarieTimewalker13 I still think about that book even years after reading it. 1d
CoffeeK8 @Amiable me too! She finally has a new book coming out next year 1d
CoffeeK8 @CoverToCoverGirl yes! So wonderful and surprising 1d
CoffeeK8 @Cinfhen thanks! I read mostly romance & SFF but try to branch out 1d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I know, a lot of fun looking back at my lists. 1d
Amiable @CoffeeK8 I read another one by her that I really didn't enjoy at all (“Last Night in Montreal“), so I hope the new one is as good as “Station Eleven.“ 1d
JanuarieTimewalker13 I bet!!! I know I will love it!! I also want to get to Burn for Me! 19h

I chose this book because I had done a bit of research on it, and I found that the symbolism of this book is strong. Caden Bosch is living two worlds, one of his imagination, one in real life. This imaginary world, one where he is an artist for a pirate, who is wanting to go deep into the Mariana's Trench. Once he agrees on this expedition, Caden develops a mental illness. Will this illness gradually get better? Or worse?

⭐️⭐️⭐️ A beautifully written book by a woman who treated and personally experienced an array of mental illnesses. The stories are moving and I‘d highly recommend it to people in the mental health profession and those seeking to understand mental illnesses the profound impact treatment has on both parties. It‘s relatable, sometimes humorous and always blatantly honest.

This was a good read! Definitely opened up my eyes to a different side of schizophrenia than what I have experienced in my life. #LMPBC @TheBookKeepers @irre @Johanna414

Interesting brief natural history lithium, psychology, psychiatry, and good memoir of going crazy and coming back. I love the dizzying cover and it matches my skull succulent planter and phone case. Fun color scheme, and a pretty fun read.

Extremely well written. A difficult story to digest. Topics included depression, severe mood disorders, alcoholism, neglect...emotional abuse...infidelity—but also love and compassion.

I went into this expecting a generic thriller, but it turned out to be rather good. The ending wandered into unlikely territory which spoilt it a little for me, but overall a good read. 4🌟

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Penguin Books (UK), for the opportunity to read an ARC. #NetGalley

The last part of Mental detailing Jaime‘s research of lithium has piqued my interest of the Bolivian salt flats. I had no idea! So cool!

I got a new phone today so I'm really just playing with my camera. It's so much better than my previous! I need to put it down and read some on my #LMPBC
