Hey guys! I am excited to announce that I am now a Book of the Month affiliate. I will start doing a monthly haul to share my book selections. I will continue to attempt to read at least one BOTM selection, whether the current one or one from a past month.
November is a very busy month for new releases, as everyone can attest. Especially November 5th. Due to that, I chose to have two books in my BOTM box.
1. The Great Pretender: The Undercover Mission That Changed Our Understanding of Madness by Susannah Cahalan
Surprisingly, I have already read this book. This is a narrative nonfiction surrounding the famous study of David Rosenhan’s titled “On Being Sane in Insane Places.” Published in 1973, it had an essential impact on the changes we made to treat mental illness. While it moved the psychiatric system away from the problem of asylums, it led to the current problem we have of the lack of psychiatric beds to treat individuals.
2. The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White
This book, written by Kiersten White, is a new young adult fantasy series surrounding the legend of King Arthur. For more information, including a synopsis, check out it’s Goodreads page here.
