This is where I review books that are meant for adults - that means anyone over the age of 18. Of course, there are those under 18 years old who may find many of these books to their liking, particularly the classics which include most of my favorites. I've been on a mission to read the Pulitzer fiction winners and I think anyone who can understand these books, and many are also required reading in high school, should enjoy these classics. If you have a suggestion for a book you would like to read that you want my review of, I would be happy to assist you.

I put this book on my wish list on Amazon awhile ago. After looking at it and reading the description several times, I finally decided to buy it. I was intrigued by the subject of madness among creative writers and well-known authors who have committed suicide. Mr. Styron was able to remember and record his descent into the depression that could have driven him to end his life. He was fortunate that he had the right support and found the solution that worked for him. The feeling I got was that the right way out of the depth of depression is different for everyone. Something that works for one may push another one over the edge.

I loved The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank. I have to say, though, that the title threw me off and I wasn't interested in it based entirely on that. But I happened to come across a free copy of it and saw that it would be a quick read (I'm a slow reader so a book of many pages takes me longer than I usually want to spend on one book) and of course, once I read the back cover, thought I might enjoy it after all. And then once I started to read the book, I was hooked!
