Yet, another week has passed, and we are now almost midway into July.

How is your summer going so far? Mine has been filled with – apart from books – workouts and new restaurants.

Here’s my reading highlight for this week:

Good Morning, Monster! By Catherine Gildiner
5 stars

Catherine recounts her experience treating five folks. We learn why they went to see Catherine (often not willing), what issues they were experiencing and how they overcame them/are recovering. Catherine describes these five folks as heroes, and after reading about their journeys to recovery, I couldn’t agree more.

Despite the heavy topic, I finished this book in one sitting. The writing was intriguing and hopeful. It makes you think about the power of therapy and the human potential – what we can do with the cards we are dealt with.

TW: rape, suicide (ideation), (drug, emotional) abuse, death (of a child), domestic violence, mutilation, negligence
