Novels About Madness!!

I'm so not into March Madness, however reading books which are about madness is intriguing if you ask me! 

So, when I came across an article on Flavorwire titled, 50 Great Novels About Madness by Emily Temple, I could resist checking out the book titles... Some of the book titles I've read, but many I have not read and some of the book titles were completely new to me!

In the above mentioned article, Temple writes the following:
Not so much into March Madness? Well, perhaps you should look at it another way. March is the perfect month for reading books about madness — it is a transitional time, after all, possessed of both lion and lamb. Plus, you’ll have ample reading time, both outside and inside. The books herein, it should be noted, are those that deal with a kind of literary madness — obsession and absurdity and hallucination — not directly focusing on mental illness proper, whenever the two can be separated. So you won’t find The Bell Jar orOne Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest or The Yellow Wallpaper here, though those are all excellent reads.
Click on above link to see which novels made the list of novels to read about madness! Until my next post, happy reading!!
