    Overall, A Danger to Herself and Others was page-turning, compulsive reading experience. Once I reached the twist around the middle, it was hard to put the book down. Ultimately I read it in less than 24 hours--always a good sign with a thriller! The writing was engaging, and I felt im...

    I would like to thank Edelweiss and Sourcebooks Fire for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 4.5-49. stars. This book was amazing! I am obviously feeling stingy this year as really this should be a 5 star but for some reason I can't click that last star. I re...

    *3.5 MENTAL STARS* My first book about mental illness and set in a mental hospital and I gotta say this was definitely unlike anything I?ve ever read before. Hannah was a very unreliable narrator and I loved that. At first you don?t realize that there?s something wrong with...

    There aren't enough mental health books out there that put psychosis in a sympathetic light. Characters with this illness are usually portrayed as dangerous, maniacal, and sure, this book does come with some thriller elements. The words "a danger to herself and others" are repeated ad ...

    3.5 Stars Touted as a mix of We Were Liars and Girl, Interrupted, A Danger to Herself and Others caught my attention immediately. The blurb immediately lets us know we're dealing with an unreliable narrator in an institutional setting. Hannah knows how to make friends with anyone, b...

    Well, wasn't this book unputdownable (is that even a word?)! I began reading it and I just couldn't put it down until I had finished it around two in the morning. It is THAT good. We find Hannah, our main character, a girl who finds herself in a mental institution against her will, l...

    "Hannah Gold doesn?t belong in a place like this. Hannah Gold wouldn?t hurt a fly.? Okay, I have to say it, if you?re going to describe a book as Girl, Interrupted meets We Were Liars? You really need to bring it. Those are both very dark stories and to be a combination of...

    tw: eating disorders, mentions of suicide Just a heads up, this review is going to be on the shorter side because there is A LOT that I can't talk about without spoiling the story! Holy unreliable narrators! There is nothing that I love more in a story than an unreliable narra...

    It was just a mistake. One big misunderstanding, that?s what landed Hannah here in the Institution, and soon enough, her best friend?s parents and the doctors and the judge will all realize it. While she?s stuck here, though, Hannah?s going to do what Hannah does best?persua...

    I read this in one sitting, emotionally engaged with it from the very first words, pretty much down to the vibrant, lyrical main protagonist voice ? Hannah is quite simply brilliant, alive on the page and about to face a battle against everything she thought she knew. A Danger To He...

    Thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebooks for an e-Arc in exchange for an honest review. This YA novel about a young girl struggling to come to terms with her mental illness was highly engaging and deeply moving.I cried my share of tears at the end of this one. Hannah as a character was ...

    Alyssa B. Sheinmel?s latest book, A Danger to Herself and Others, is a young adult dark contemporary book about mental health, about people?s prejudices, but also about gradually learning to accept yourself as you are. Hannah Gold has been wrongly accused of hurting her best fri...

    Kinda boring and anticlimactic. I dislike first person point of view and this character has very limited dialogue throughout the book. She's snotty, entitled and conniving. I almost DNFed but figured it was a quick, easy read so I trudged through. The idea was OK and could have definit...

    Hannah knew she was more intelligent than her peers, and she also knew that everyone was wrong about what happened to Agnes. ?Pro: This story started fast right out of the gate and just kept going and going, until the truth revealed itself. ?Pro: I will be the first to a...

    You can also read my review here: https://devouringbooks2017.wordpress.... I have read a lot of books that are set in mental hospitals and so many of them feel the same that I almost didn?t want to read this one. But something really drew me to this title, probably the title itsel...

    "Reset . Like I?m an appliance that needs tinkering, a frozen laptop that needs to be rebooted. I don?t think Ctrl + Alt + Delete is going to cut it here." I haven't read a lot of books with unreliable narrators - mainly because most of them turn it to be bad. Mara, from The U...

    Very emotional and captivating. Not just a guessing game. Will play mind games with your perception at times. I received the copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. Their blurb said "Girl, Interrupted meets We Were Liars" and I felt both intrigued and puz...

    i thought about DNFing this book so many times i just didn?t like it at all. it felt like nothing had happened the entire book even in the big plot ?reveals?. i could never get attached to any of the characters, mostly because i feel like none of them were strong enough as charac...

    Tl;dr: A Danger to Herself and Others is a first rate and gorgeously written contemporary young adult novel. The description of A Danger to Herself and Others makes it seem like your typical girl in institution (aka unreliable narrator) deals with her issues and her roommate. Go ...
