    Birthday Letters, a book of poems by Ted Hughes, which is about his ex wife, Sylvia Plath. Was not a big fan of his but am compelled by the emotional honesty and striking imagery in the book.
    Anne Sexton, her poetry is gripping, original and refreshingly blunt and honest. Raw and seeking, so another unique experience. I like to switch between poetry, literature, biography and psychology, also
    about mental health and have become interested in how the brain affects the emotions and then the body, as my wanting to learn and understand more seems to have deepened as I age!
    Bought a book about the brain but have yet to plough through it! Books about trauma, as I have been through it,and am still trying to heal, and can read when the depression is at a low level. So I appreciate the time
    I can read more, as I have spent a long time in the dark, too depressed to pick up a book, and still have many bad days when I cannot. So I missed reading, and miss the days when I cannot find that place to escape to, and learn, or just wallow in another world.

    I already posted this earlier in the thread, but I was in the middle of it. Now that I finished it, it was one of the best books I ever read. It’s Elton John’s memoir, called “Me.” Even if you don’t like this kind of book, it won’t matter. Of course it helps if you like Elton John, but the book is so well written, and has plenty of humor, even if it is directed by Elton, at himself, it had parts that made me laugh out loud. I literally (no pun intended) told everyone I know, that would listen, to read it.

  5. I’m reading a biography of Anais Nin. I think she was profoundly troubled and absolutely fascinating. Sections of the biography were pieced together from her diaries, but she told so many different versions of her life story to so many different people, even her own diaries contain different accounts of the same experiences. The author has researched Anais for years and admits even she isn’t sure what is truth and what has been embellished or straight up fabricated. I find the whole thing completely interesting.

    The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. Not something I'd usually go for because it's based around Greek mythology (not really my thing). I can't put it down. Mixture of brilliant story telling , mystery, fantasy and so well written. I read to much fodder and this is a breath of fresh air
    Free your mind..... and the rest will follow
