I recently finished reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and it was better than I expected it to be. Since it was a school assigned book I thought it would be boring and each chapter the struggle to read it would become greater and greater. But I was wrong. Sure some parts of it were a little dry and lengthy, and I got kind of sick of Victor Frankenstein complaining about his life, but overall the book was pretty good.
Throughout the book we follow Victor Frankenstein (who is not the monster, just a little heads up for anyone who didn’t know) and see how his life collapses after he creates the monster. Frankenstein goes a little crazy after creating the monster; he thinks it is an absolute abomination and regrets making it once he gives it life.
So as you may have guessed if you have read it before, this post is about The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. I just finished reading it over the weekend and it was so good! It is about a girl named Esther Greenwood who slowly slips into a world of insanity. We follow her on the road to becoming insane. It is a very interesting look into the human mind and how psychology works. I heard so many good reviews about the book and I was excited to read it. Thankfully I wasn’t disappointed. It was one of those books that I couldn’t put down. I tried to read it as often as possible in between my busy schedule and I finished faster than I imagined. It is a great read if you don’t mind that it is kind of dark and I highly recommend it to anyone!
Just a quick little post for this week because I was excited about this book and had to share. I need another book to read, so if anyone has a good suggestion leave me a comment below! Or comment on what you thought of the book if you have read it or if you would like to start reading it. Have a nice day!
