Honestly not sure what to say about this one. I was definitely intrigued by it. The ending felt a bit off for the rest of the story (I mean, I guess we did see it coming but still)

not much happens in this book tbh. it kinda feels like reading a drunk person's account of a fever dream. the narrator is unhinged. luckily, i have a soft spot for unhinged woman.

I found it so emotionally draining reading this book which is partly why I adored it. I found myself hating and loving the main character so much, partly because I identified with her atributes I didnt much like in someone. It really made me question what type of person I am whilst also enjoying the plot and seeing where her journey ended/started.
