The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

Just wanted to shout out to this book I just read. I loved it. It's now on my favourite books list.

I knew that a well known book called "The Bell  Jar" Existed, and I knew that Sylvia Plath was a poet who committed suicide by putting her head in a gas oven, however I didn't know she had written the book. This does explain why it reads like a beautiful piece of poetry.

I thought it followed well, was relatable and was clever. I can understand why it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but if you feel we have similar tastes then give it a read.


  1. What's the plot? No spoilers but I hate surprises ;)

    1. That is incredibly contradictory! I don't know what to say; A very clever young writer used to getting everything she works for in life, is knocked back and has to evaluate how to be happy.
      More or less!
