Dani is not a spammer!

My friend Dani @ Touch My Spine Book Reviews is being attacked by WordPress for interacting with her fellow bloggers and liking/commenting on their posts. This is really not cool on WordPress’ part. I enjoy talking to Dani and she is always great for having a fun discussion abut books or just being a nice person. She doesn’t deserve to be called a spammer.

I couldn’t be more upset! I did nothing for spam behavior and I got sent this after inquiring about my followers!!! Look at this email!!!! I did nothing wrong at all guys! My spammish behavior was following like 5 or so people and commenting on my followers and posting a few times!!! Now it’s not […]

The fact that the guy emailing her has the title of Happiness Engineer is a joke. He should recognize that she isn’t a spammer and help her out considering she put time and money into her website with them.

What do you think about this? Let me know in the comments.

Book Review: Turtles All the Way Down

Another John Green book to add to the bookshelf! God I love his writing. Every time I pick up one of his books, he surprises me with how much he gets into his characters.

I really enjoyed this book. This is my version of a synopsis:

Aza is struggling with mental illness and the loss of her father as her and her friend Daisy attempt to solve the mystery of the disappearance of a famous local billionaire. The way they find most of the clues to the case is through the billionaire’s son Davis. There is romance, confusion, chaos and humour all packed into this novel.

What is enjoyable to me is the fact that you get to see inside Aza’s mind and how she is in a constant struggle with herself dealing with the demon she believes is trapped inside. She doesn’t think that she belongs to her own body and is fighting to stay in control of herself rather than let her inner demons win. Her thought processes and how she goes back and forth as if she is two personalities fascinates me. She lets the smallest things ruin her day which is interesting because that is from my perspective but from hers, it is a huge deal because of her mental illness.

And Davis has his own problems that he deals with. His younger brother Noah is just looking for a father figure to look up to and he just wants someone to believe in. Davis puts all his emotions into his love of astrology and tries to grasp at something he deep down knows he can never have by trying to start a relationship with Aza.

Both of these characters have lost someone very close to them and you can see that it affects them greatly throughout the book. They are just two lost minds trying to stay connected on the constant tumble down the spiral.

If you are interested in Mental Illness at all, this would be a good book to read. I will admit that it is not really a “feel good” book but none the less, it is still a fascinating read in my eyes because I learned a lot about how someone living with mental illness perceives the world.

You can find this book on Goodreads and Amazon.
