172 Thoughts I Had While Reading This Darkness Mine

172 Thoughts I Had While Reading This Darkness Mine
Have you ever read a book that leaves you feeling so WTF that you need to talk about it immediately with everyone around you? Because THIS DARKNESS MINE had me really freaking shook and now I need every Epic Reader to read it and discuss it because I have a lot of emotions and a book hangover that has not gone away. Seriously.
Here is my emoji preview: 😱😬😱😱😱😒😦😍😱😱😦😍🤕😍😍😱😓😳😱😱💀
OKAY are you ready to jump into THIS DARKNESS MINE? Let’s a gooooo:

1. “I’m digging splinters out of my gums again.” Okay nice
2. We’re off to a fun start
3. Lmao ew this is so gross and VISCERAL
4. Ew
5. “Like a lot of things, it only hurts if you let it.” Who IS THIS GIRL
6. Imagine my lowest moment was dropping the f-bomb I think my life would be going considerably smoother
7. Yikes
8. Lmao Sasha is such a b#tch
9. I like Brooke tho
10. Oh my god she’s blackmailing her own father
11. WHO IS THIS GIRL!!
12. “People are always surprised when roses have a few thorns” I love Mindy’s writing
13. “Everything’s peaches,” I’m 100% going to start saying that
14. Can you imagine being like, an eighth as determined about anything as Sasha is about everything
15. I bet she doesn’t even take naps. How do you do that, Sasha? How
16. Although, to be fair, she probably will not have friends for long
17. Lmao she’s such a b#tch!!!!
18. Ew
19. Why under her nail of all things!! Ugh
20. Omg what would I do if I found out I had a twin
21. Actually I always wanted a twin that would be dope

22. Sasha’s heart: *beats*
Sasha:

23. She’s such a sociopath lmao I love it
24. Oh good she is writing herself notes without realizing it this will end well
25. “There’s nothing wrong with me,” is exactly what someone with something wrong with them would say
26. HA she’s taking a nap. I knew it
27. Heath… What a square
28. Is it a rule that being a Cool Teen tm means having a motorcycle
29. Lmao why is he such a tough guy
30. He’s literally out here acting like Danny Zuko ok Isaac I see you
31. “Cause I had that dream too. But I was actually there and you sure as hell weren’t asleep.”

32. SO YOU’VE GONE INSANE, THAT’S FUN

33. Oh my god this is crazy
34. It’s not actually happening… is it…
35. I love Isaac
36. “Get it together, Stone,” should be the tagline of this book
37. I would say girl is losing it but did she ever really have it?? Lmk
38. I’m screaming WHAT IS THIS
39. Imagine I typed the rest of this the way Sasha’s crazy twisted sleepwalking unself-self typed notes to herself
40. It would not be F-U-N
41. I still like Brooke I’d be friends with her
42. Not Sasha tho
43. That would be terrifying
44. “I think you might be happy,” Haaaa ha ha hahah ha

45. “I mean, you’re like the Hester Prynne of the group.”
“Cute, shame you don’t apply your cleverness elsewhere.”

46. Heath is boring give me more Isaac
47. I’m screaming every time Sasha wakes up to a new note the spelling is even more ridiculous can you imagine waking up to a note you left yourself using the phrases “What would Jesus do” and “equal and opposite erection HA” in the span of a sentence
48. There’s a shocking amount of strange metaphorical math in this book that I was not expecting
49. “‘What’s gotten into you, Sasha?’ 
I almost say Isaac Harver’s dick,” 
Oh my GOD
50. ARE YOU DRUNK
51. This is very Poltergeist means Gone Girl and I’m very here for it
52. Omg men are the worst lmao “She never existed” shut the f#&k up
53. Everything is FALLING APART
54. Shanna is so dramatic
55. Omg aw he brought a picnic I love Isaac!!
56. I cannot believe he loves Sasha’s crazy self

57. “It would be so sweet if he had gotten her name right.” The sheer DRAMA

58. Ew these f#&king reeds
59. Mindy’s writing is so sharp I’m pretty sure the words alone could give me a papercut

60. Wait WHAT
61. WHAT!!
62. LMAO SHE JUST??? RAN THROUGH A WINDOW???
63. BIG MOOD, GIRL

64. Jesus Christ
65. IF THAT AIN’T 2017 IN A NUTSHELL
66. Man if I had a nickel for every time I wanted to throw myself through a window
67. I WOULDN’T HAVE ANY BECAUSE WHO DOES THAT
68. Can you imagine being on Skype with your friend and they just LAUNCH THEMSELVES

69. “I can’t die—”
“You’re not going to,” Jones interrupts me.
“—listening to this music,” I finish. “It’s unbearable.”

70. She’s so high this is incredible
71. Once I was in the hospital all hopped up on pain meds and asked my mom if she could get the nurse to turn the gravity back on
72. You know it’s bad when even your mom is like “Sweetie maybe you shouldn’t look in a mirror right now.”
73. Okay so like she’s just a crazy person with a heart condition
74. Are heart transplants that common
75. Dude Shanna’s gonna be so pissed
76. I’m crying Brooke washed the money Isaac gave her
77. DO THEY LET YOU KEEP THE OLD ONE

78. What is this book even about other than SHEER INSANITY

79. Poor Amanda did not want to be involved in ANY of this
80. These f#&king clarinet reeds
81. Imagine this was happening during an episode of Grey’s Anatomy

82. “Did I just really screw this up?”
“No, you’re just really white, that’s all.”

83. Where is this book going
84. WHEN WILL SHANNA STRIKE AGAIN
85. “Because in the end it’s just you who has to be enough.” 😍
86. Is this a… love story…?
87. OooooooooOOo she knows
88. Yo F#&K BOTH HEATH AND LILLY
89. My aesthetic is Sasha saying “it doesn’t” when Brooke suggests that “if it means anything to you, I think they’re both happy.”

90. “went to your house yr mom not happy to see me” I’m crying I love him

91. They’re so cute 😭
92. Me after meeting Layla: “Lilly who?”
93. Damn Karen
94. Pretty much every character in this book is a stone cold bitch and I kind of love it

95. Me 100 pages ago: This is a shocking and visceral psychological thriller
Me now:

96. “This won’t hurt you, right?” Imagine this actually killed her
97. Imagine dying in that exact scenario I would want to die all over again
98. Classic antihero send off
99. I know Layla is literally dying but if Layla dies I will be so upset
100. Omg I want a Layla spinoff love story
101. Give this girl her happy ending!!
102. Who am I kidding this is a Mindy McGinnis novel
103. “Dad proudly shows me his own scar, somehow thinking that seeing a red streak across his white, fish-belly, weird-hair-patterned chest would make me feel better.” I’m yelling
104. Oh Sasha… what
105. Omg how high is she
106. Shouldn’t she just like, have the munchies??
107. Existential crises cannot be good for a girl post-surgery

113. She doesn’t exist Sasha SHE DOESN’T EXIST

114. Dang her dad is the worst
115. “They can give you a new heart, but they can’t fix something that isn’t in there.” Dang dang dang
116. WHEN WILL THAT BE jesus
117. I’m so bad with any kind of pain or gore if I had to live with a tube coming out of my chest I would throw up every time I remembered it
118. Everyone who lives like that is so impressive to me
119. Lmao ew even all this talk of medical issues is going to make me nauseous
120. I DON’T LIKE THIS

131. “I understand you have a new friend?”
“Yes. Brandy. She’s an amputee.”
“And what’s she like?”
“She’s like a regular person with just one foot.”

132. Shanna is losing it
