Reggie Mason believes she’s unlocked the secret to keeping herself safe: Nobody can hurt you if you never let them in. She encounters an unexpected challenge to her misanthropy: a Twizzler-chomping, indie film-making narcissist named Snake. As Reggie falls for Snake, she must decide whether it’s time to rewrite the rules that have defined her.


Note: I received a free e-copy of the book via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review

I liked this book but found it difficult even though I finished it in one sitting. It was very different from what I usually go for and at the very least, it gave me a unique perspective on mental health. I’m not sure how critical I can be because this isn’t up my alley – some parts worked for me while some parts didn’t. Overall, an interesting read that I wish I could have enjoyed more.

Read the detailed review here.


I would recommend the book to people who like a fairly accurate representation of mental health issues (depression in this case).

For the food, I would recommend ice cream again as the main character works on an ice cream truck (Okay, it’s scorching hot here and I use any excuse I can get to wolf down some ice cream). In terms of music, some really soft piano music would do the trick, like Debussy.
