Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah, the Bionic Book Worm.
This week’s topic:
Top 5 books under 300 pages
These aren’t exactly my top books. I chose books I really enjoyed reading/learning from that aren’t comics/graphic novels but are under 300 pages.
Madness: A Bipolar Life by Marya Hornbacher
Madness is Hornbacher’s autobiography about her struggle with bipolar disorder, ultra-rapid-cycle type 1, which is hard to treat. It’s a great read and a very informative one, but it was a difficult read too. I was hooked the entire time I read, but Hornbacher is very descriptive in her writing, so I often felt uncomfortable and had to take breaks from the book. This one could potentially be triggering for some, so be mindful that it discusses substance abuse, eating disorder, and self-harm as well as other topics.
