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?

Another Sunday of #audiosouping along to Eleanor. I‘m at about 60% & she has definitely grown on me. This is Jamie Oliver‘s Pappa Al Pomodoro Soup. Tomato-bread soup is never the prettiest soup in the pot or bowl but it is smelling delicious & it‘s quick & easy—something I needed this weekend. Finished soup pics coming later. 🍅🍞🍲❤️📚

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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.

Really loved this book. Having suffered with anxiety at different times of my life I found it really informative but without over complicating or preaching! I will definitely be reading more of Ruby Wax books in future

1st time reading this author. The pace of it at 1st is pretty slow. It took me a while to get into it. I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed it. I think all who deal with this issue, & their families should read it. I don't think it's a trigger. Not graphic at all. It's about how she feels & how she copes. How the author develops the protagonist, portrays to perfection the pace & mood of the majority who endure such a practice. It deserves a read!

What a raw, emotional story. Eleanor Oliphant is hard to relate to, yet you can't help but love her. She's bold and funny, and her emotional scars and flaws cause you to become quickly invested in her. Such a unique story of the human experience.

violabrain I think it‘s funny that people say Eleanor is hard to relate to because I completely related to her! 😂😂 1d

A big work and social week for me so not a lot of reading got done. (Last nights nautical themed street Christmas party top left!)
I finished Blackout which I loved, and my reread of Cinder on audio which was great. Started and really enjoying Good Omens and It‘s All In Your Head (nf)
Watching the latest series of The Crown which is wonderful too. OMG that Aberfan episode!

Annl That episode was so difficult. 1d
Centique @Annl I know right? 💔 1d
Cinfhen Looks like you managed to mix lots of fun time in with your reading time ♥️ 1d
Reggie Your block has to be the awesomest block around. I remember the go to different people‘s houses and drink fiesta last year. And the pic looks great!! 21h
Centique @Reggie thank you Reggie! We‘ve lived on our street for thirteen years - only in the last four or five have we made some really close friends here, and it pretty much started with people reaching out to each other at Christmas. I wish for stellar neighbours for you too! 💕🌟 💕 12h

I learned so much about autism. I thought it was well done.

I quite liked this latest graphic memoir from Raina Telgemeier. Her memoirs are relatable and yet distinct. I like her art style and visual storytelling.

(My nine-year-old read it the day it came out and has reread it numerous times since. I highly recommend it for the tween set.)
