A Danger to Herself and Others Reviews
Very emotional and captivating. Not just a guessing game. Will play mind games with your perception at times.
I received the copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
Their blurb said "Girl, Interrupted meets We Were Liars" and I felt both intrigued and puzzled.
But then I met Hannah on her own pages...and that attitude, that story she basically lives in.
The plot starts like a random end of a rope that you're somehow compelled to pull until it's pulling you and you're so de ...more

I have read a lot of books that are set in mental hospitals and so many of them feel the same that I almost didn’t want to read this one. But something really drew me to this title, probably the title itself. Rather than reading about someone who is merely mentally ill, the title tells me that the main character is also dangerous, which I found to be different than most other novels written about mental hospitals. Sure, mo ...more
"Hannah Gold doesn’t belong in a place like this. Hannah Gold wouldn’t hurt a fly.”
Okay, I have to say it, if you’re going to describe a book as Girl, Interrupted meets We Were Liars… You really need to bring it. Those are both very dark stories and to be a combination of the two, you really need to take a chance and just go for it. Mess with our heads a little. And I just feel like this story is far too safe for that description. And that’s not to say I didn’t like it. I did. I just thought the ...more
A Danger to Herself and Others is a YA novel that deals with mental illness and coming to terms with a diagnosis. The book is part mystery, part thriller and is a compelling and fast read. I recommend it and I plan to read Sheinmel’s previous books. A Danger to Herself and Others grabbed me with the very first sentence:
When I first got here - when they brought me here - a man with blue pants and a matching shirt, both of which looked like they were made out of paper, asked me questions.

I would like to thank Edelweiss and Sourcebooks Fire for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book was amazing! I am obviously feeling stingy this year as really this should be a 5 star but for some reason I can't click that last star.
I really loved this story. Hannah was for the most part a very relatable character. She had me guessing from the beginning what was happening and eventually what was wrong with her. (view spoiler)[I actually didn't guess the hallu ...more
Overall, A Danger to Herself and Others was page-turning, compulsive reading experience. Once I reached the twist around the middle, it was hard to put the book down. Ultimately I read it in less than 24 hours--always a good sign with a thriller! The writing was engaging, and I felt immersed in the world and characters. And, well, the characters, particularly the main & POV character Hannah... there were times I really didn't like her, but I think that was the point? I like that I didn't lik ...more
Disclaimer: I received this ARC courtesy of Sourcebooks Fire through Netgalley. I am grateful for the opportunity to review an ARC for my readers, but this will not influence my final rating. All opinions expressed in this review are my own and based solely on the book.
This review will contain both a spoiler-free and a with-spoiler section. I do not recommend looking at the latter if you plan on reading A Danger to Herself and Others because a major plot point in the book would be ruined.
