Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme created by Renee at It’s Book Talk as a way to share some old favorites as well as sharing books we want to read that were published over a year ago.
This week I’m throwing it back to Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan.
Published November 13th 2012 by Free Press
If you are interested in non fiction, medical mystery, mental health type topics then I highly recommend reading this book. I went through a phase where I loved anything that discussed moods/madness, etc. This is a fast read (250 pages) but it really captures Cahalan’s descent into madness and how her family helped her get a diagnosis.
If you’ve read this, what did you think? Does anyone else have recommendations that are similar to Brain on Fire?
