I hate it when I can't seem to finish a book. I had to do it with Snowflake Obsidian: Memoir of a cutter. I struggled to read it, but I also can't pick a new book before I have finished with the one I am busy with. Booktasters says it is ok, I can let it go... Phew! (I am 62% into the book)

I thought that this book would give me great insights into the mind of a young adult, and help me understand the workings of a teenage brain. We have a tween in our midst. I love the writing in the book, but it did not seem to get to a point. I still gave the book 4/5 for the writing, and for the fact that I think young people and people struggling with the existential questions will get great insights from reading this.



My review is up on Goodreads


Snowflake Obsidian: Memoir of a CutterSnowflake Obsidian: Memoir of a Cutter by Sage Steadman the Hippie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I got a free Kindle copy of Snowflake Obsidian: Memoir of a Cutter, from Sage Steadman. (In exchange for an honest review).
The title is intriguing which made me choose this book via Booktasters. I always love getting a peek into the psychology of interesting people. Sage Steadman writes a beautiful insightful memoir about passing the gateway into adulthood with all the questions and issues and angst that comes with it! One of the ways she deals with it is by cutting herself.
I got stuck on the story-line. I only read this book 62%, and decided to call it quits. My apologies if I missed something. I hate to do this, but I also hate reading the same thing over and over.
I get that this is the existential journey of the coming-of-age of a very bright mind. I do believe that young people struggling with life and even depression, would find great refuse in a book like this. It also explore relationships at it's core, family, friends and romantic. Thanks, Sage, for sharing your story with us.
I know you have a bright future as writer ahead of you!
