    1. When I picked this book up, I confess I was hoping for something Something that the blurb had promised and that the creepy, beautiful cover reinforced I wanted this the fine line between sanity and insanity, good and evil and the madness that exists in all of us.And I got it for the first 10% of the book A Madness So Discreet opens wonderfully and horrifically Grace Mae is in a Boston mental asylum where she has been hidden away to hide the family shame she carries a baby that her own father put [...]

    2. This feels like a second version of Jackaby, meaning there s this lost girl, this intelligent, cheeky detective, this pointless and dull case and a weird atmosphere above it all The only huge difference is there are no fantasy elements in it No werewolves No magic I guess this is why I liked Jackaby slightly better, but really, both are sluggish and underwhelming Did not finish at fifty percent.

    3. I LOVED THIS I m currently trying to write a coherent review for this, because I don t understand why this doesn t have the raving reviews it so clearly deserves and I want people to read it.

    4. Warning I cuss As usual.Am I a fan of bone chilling thrillers Yes.Am I a fan of spine tingling horrors YES.Am I a fan of hair raising brilliancy ASDFGHJKL YES.Was A Madness So Discreet any of those things Erm no.Then what the heck was it Honestly, I m not too sure myself If anything, A Mandess So Discreet was weird as fuck I had no idea what the heck was going on And if I m being really honest which I am , I would have to say that the whole book just felt so pretentious.First of all, the writing [...]

    5. THIS UNCORRECTED PROOF IS PROVIDED BY HARPER COLLINS IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW They work their discreet types of madness on us, power and pain, and we hold to our truths in the darkness.Okay.Let s play a game.Let s play Guess What This Book is About.If you look at the cover and the title of this book, what do you think it s about GoI came into this book thinking that it was going to be some dark, twisted book about insanity and maddness I got that from the book cover and the synopsis But [...]

    6. Antes de pegar esse livro pra ler eu vi um monte de gente dizendo que ele foi totalmente diferente do que eu imaginei e MESMO SABENDO DISSO, esse livro foi totalmente diferente do que eu imaginei.O plot desse livro como um cachorro doido que fica correndo de um lado pro outro quando chega visita, querendo carinho, querendo brincar, querendo comida e de repente voc est louco gritando O QUE VOC QUER DE MIM Isso fez com que eu demorasse um pouco pra entrar na hist ria porque eu ficava o tempo todo [...]

    7. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss They all had their terrors This was an okay story, but it struggled to hold my attention.I felt quite sorry for Grace at the start of this book, she d been through a lot, was pregnant, and incarcerated in an insane asylum, and things were really not going well for her at all As the book progressed I didn t like her all that much though She made some hasty and risky decisions, an [...]

    8. I think we re all quite mad Some of us are just discreet about it Mindy McGinnis instantly became one of my favourite authors when I received an ARC of This Darkness Mine and found it to be one of the most extraordinary books I had ever read A few months later I picked up her newest novel The Female of the Species, which was equally captivating Which is why I then bought A Madness So Discreet First I fell in love with the title, then with this amazing cover.A Madness So Discreet was a fascinati [...]

    10. Deveriam ser 4,5 estrelas.Eu confesso que fiquei impressionado com essa hist ria Primeiro eu achava que seria BEM YA E NADA NEM NINGU M vai me convencer que esse livro seja YA Pra mim tudo desse livro remete a uma literatura adulta A personagem pode ter seus 1718 na verdade nem sei se isso falado , mas o ponto de an lise n o esse Os acontecimentos s o muito pesados pra um livro YA, envolvem estupro, prostitui o, assassinatos, al m disso tudo, acho a linguagem do livro bem complexa pra um p blico [...]

    11. Actual Rating 4.5The haunting atmosphere, the subtle divide between madness and sanity, the twisting murder mystery and the mentorship of an investigative phrenologist I savoured all of these in A Madness So Discreet I absolutely LOVED the subtlety of the psychological problems and how even the most insane were found to have humanity than the people outside of the asylum.Grace as a character was fascinating, as a pregnant girl cast aside and sent to the asylum She finds a way to escape her dark [...]

    12. Edit Upping my rating to 5 stars from original 4.5 since it s the end of the month and I m still gushing about this book Definitely my favorite read of the month.Video 4 Reasons You Should Read This Book youtube watch v uSkp4Why this book is AWESOME Strong female protagonist overcoming legit trauma in her past She worked through it in such a real and raw way She has a dark side and makes some bad choices but she was such an empowering character Healthy portrayal of friendships There were some re [...]

    13. This is easily one of the most enthralling covers i have ever seen Does anyone know if the book is any good

    14. 2 4 16 3.5 starsThis book as a whole is beautiful Mindy McGinnis writing is amazing I could read it a long while The only thing that really displeased me was that there was no romance in this book whatsoever though I think this is a very non necessary, or fair at that, thing for a book to be rated by, that s exactly what I m doing For me a book can t only be based on crimes and murder and getting revenge There most be subplots and usally for me that is romance Without it I was hooked to the book [...]

    15. 3.7 stars It s a madness so discreet that it can walk the streets and be applauded in some circles, but it is madness nonetheless I m a fan of books that tackles the dark side of human nature The irony though is that despite my love for the the evil nature of human, I still want my main character to be relatable.A Madness So Discreet is a good book Not great or bad but a good book Let me start with why I gave it a 3.7 star instead of a solid 4 star What I don t like A Madness So Discreet came as [...]

    16. So this was an unexpected page turner of a book for me I saw it while at the library and picked it up on an impulse What a novel idea of a plot that was not only heart wrenching but also so clinically detached and logical I loved it I actually am super curious to see if this will be the beginning of a series, which I sincerely hope will be the case McGinnis has created far too interesting characters to let them remain as is, in my humble opinion as a reader.What Is It About keeping it brief beca [...]

    17. I think we re all quite mad Some of us are just discreet about it Yes Yes Yes.But first Logistics Grace Mae knows madness This is the truest statement if I ve ever seen one Grace is one of many people in the asylum being kept there under false pretenses, and a tragic event further secures her family s mantra of her being insane or mad Grace Mae and Doctor Thornhollow solve crimes together, and I often found myself trying to piece together clues and solve the things myself This acts as somewhat [...]

    18. Grace has an absolutely brilliant mind and an eye for detail She knows terrible family secrets and has been shipped off to a brutal Boston insane asylum until the bulge in her belly is gone in nine months time The only way she can deal with her situation is to shut down her mind and lock away her voice, but when it returns in a fit of violence she is relegated to the cellar where all of the worst patients are held While down there she is discovered by a visiting doctor who also dabbles in the ne [...]

    19. Actual rating 3.4 It s a madness so discreet that it can walk the streets and be applauded in some circles, but it is madness nonetheless Sanity and insanity Are these two easily distinguished or things are complicated than it seems What is the line between sanity and madness And what defines it These existential questions people are trying to answer for centuries and still there s no direct solution or a formula which will calculate the right universal answer for all the problems A madness so [...]

    20. tw rape, miscarriage, murder, incest, gruesome scenes.I recently decided what books I should buy as gifts to myself for Christmas.Yes, I do that I m a control freak.Anyway There were some that didn t quite convince me, so I picked them up in these days instead of buying the physical copies My suspicions were right and A Madness So Discreet has been the worst of those books I ve discarded.Let s start from the title, because it s blatantly deceiving I was expecting a novel set in an asylum in the [...]

    21. The original meaning of the word asylum is, in fact, protection I hope you have found it to be so in your bright surroundings, as I have found my own niche here in the dark I didn t know much going into this book, I usually get so blinded by beautiful covers that, here on , I just need to look at the book s shelves and decide whether to pick it up or not Here the cover is stunning and words such as horror and gothic convinced me Does that make me shallow Maybe, but who cares The cover though is [...]

    22. With a beautiful and intriguing cover, I thought A Madness So Discreet had failed to mesmerize or even fully haunt me But I will not deny the fact that I still liked it and enjoyed and consumed some aspects this book had offered.The beginning was pretty creepy and disturbing the main character being in an asylum filled with horrors, terrors and madness is creepy and disturbing, right And it is kinda haunting and felt like the horrors were starting to seep on my veins Then, I ve geared up myself [...]

    23. This review was originally posted on It Starts at Midnight A Madness So Discreet is almost like an old timey version of Criminal Minds Set in an insane asylum, back when those were still a thing.First, the scarily accurate representation of how people with mental health issues is disturbing at best But this is a good thing, it means the author has certainly done her homework, and has managed to create this terrible, yet all too real atmosphere inside the asylum.Things in the beginning are quite [...]

    25. I loved the idea of this story and I had only heard good things about Mindy s other story, so I was quite eager to start Love love loved Grace and Thornhollow They re excellent together and I loved how the banter progressed as the time passed I really enjoyed the entire cast of characters and found myself wanting from all of them There are definitely some twists in this story that I didn t see coming and the ending was absolutely satisfying Huge thanks to Katherine Tegen Books and Edelweiss for [...]

    26. These are your friends now, Grace Mae A madman who eats cancer in the dark and another who searches for a different kind of killer, the kind that smiles at you in the light of day This is your new life I hope you can stand it McGinnis first impressed me with her dystopian survival stories in NOT A DROP TO DRINK and IN A HANDFUL OF DUST When I found out she was tackling something totally new I was a little hesitant, but excited Although I had a few issues with A MADNESS SO DISCREET, I have a lot [...]

    27. A Madness So Discreet was a unique book I haven t read a story quite like it, but it was really good I m not sure what to say about the book because it was so different from anything else I ve read I really liked the main character, Grace She was so strong, especially towards the end She wasn t totally sane and herself at times, but who can blame her The start of the book was rather confusing to me, starting with Grace being pregnant and stuck in an insane asylum so it took me a few chapters to [...]
