TELL ME TUESDAY is a feature that oozed from the fried brains of myself and one of my best blogging buddies. It is a weekly, or bi-weekly feature (depending on your reading style), where you tell us what you are reading now, and why, and what you will be reading in the future from your tbr pile, and why. I am oh so curious why people read what they read. So tell us!

This is what I am reading right now. It deals with schizophrenia. I went to college with two students suffering with schizophrenia: one was in most of my music classes and the other I tutored in Human Biology. I am having all sorts of problems with this book, both as a YA Contemporary in general and with the mental illness aspects. I looked at the author's Q&A section on Goodreads and she admits she wrote this story based on information gotten from the internet about the illness, and has never even met anyone with schizophrenia. She has written the schizophrenic MC in first person and I think that is overwhelmingly the wrong thing to do when you have no first-hand knowledge, or experience, with such a serious subject. Anyway, this has been getting almost all four and five star reviews, so I am going to be a HUGE black sheep.
I am also listening to Jane Eyre as an audiobook.
I have no clue what I am reading next.
