Book Review: Into the Darkest Corner, Elizabeth Haynes.

By Aworldfullofprettiness
I decided towards the end of last year that I was going to stop doing book reviews for 2 reasons.
1. Because I'm not very good at expressing my love for a book without telling you the whole plot, which would be a complete spoiler for those that fancy a read. I occasionally read book reviews that are so much more descriptive and expressive, which puts mine to shame.
2. They don't seem popular with my readers so why waste my time?
I am however, going to write reviews about books that stand out from the crowd, and this one really did for me.
As you all know, I'm a regular reader of chick lit, however I do try and come away from that and sample something else, because cute love stories tend to get a bit tiresome after a while.
I was reading Kate's (from Ghoststories) reviews a good few months ago, and this book went it my 'to buy' list.
I started reading it at the beginning of the new year. 11 days in and I'm already half way through (which is very good going for someone that usually takes 6 weeks to read 1 book!).
I remember when I first started reading this I got very confused and a little worried that I would get lost in it. The pages flit between past and present, but this is made clear with dates before each 'entry'. Within a few pages I began to understand what was happening - A young woman 4 years previous, and the same woman in the present day. It showed you how an incident 4 years ago has changed her personality and outlook on life, and how a mental health disorder had formed due to the incident. It contains themes of domestic violence, sex and love.
Without giving too much away, I loved how the mental health disorder was portrayed. It really gave me an insight into how tiring it could be for anyone who suffered from it. The author gave so much attention to detail, and I developed clear images in my head of how everything would have looked.
Right from the start every turn of the page left me wanting more. The incident in question which shaped this woman's life from then on wasn't revealed till ******
