I borrowed this book from a coworker a while ago. As I’ve stated previously, I have trouble with actual books. I read the most in my bed in the dark on my Kindle. Real books hurt when they hit you in the face because you fell asleep reading them. I have a feeling I might make some more time to read real books in my new house though. I’m moving in at the end of the month, and this is just one of the many rooms with built in bookshelves:
I think I might find myself sitting in a chair by the window reading an actual book more often!
Anyway, that’s a lot of words to say that it took me a while to finish this book, not because it wasn’t good, just because I had to sit down with the physical book and read it. I usually read while letting our bunny run around the basement.
So the premise of this book is that Jessica, a semi-struggling makeup artist enters a psychological study under false pretenses. She gains the attention of the psychologist running the study, and we go from there. Dr. Shields gets Jessica to admit deeply held secrets about her life and her family. There’s something ominous behind the whole thing though. I liked how this all wrapped up. Jessica really seemed to take therapy seriously and get something out of it. It was super traumatic, but I think she came out the other side a better human. 3.5 stars
