#47: The Bell Jar
Although well written, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath was not very enjoyable to read. It was a depressing story that I really didn't want to finish. But for the sake of my book numbers I decided to just finish it. The first half seemed to be a decent story of a college-aged woman coming of age. Then all of a sudden she started to go crazy and the second half detailed her time spent in a mental home recovering from her suicide attempts and depression. I know its considered a classic but it wasn't very uplifting to read.
