Today I’m pleased to share with you a book which I actually received a while ago now, but it’s a book I’ve been keen to read as it sounds so interresting.  This was given to me by the author so a big thank you to her for a copy of this, and I wonder if you like the sound of this, as I find this subject oddly interesting myself! 🙂  Firstly here’s what I received from the author…

My Life with a Sociopath: It Can Happen to Anyone by Karen FergusonIt started with a comment on social media, actually that’s not true, it had started long before then, but that comment led to a message, which led to several calls and ended with him driving his car into my house.
Through the use of genuine text message, I’ve opened up my life to show what I went through in the last two years, with an aggressive, lying, steaing, borderline alcoholic sociopathic husband.
#mylifewithasociopath is an important read, to show that this really can happen to anyone, to educate people on the signs to look for, what you can do to protect yourself and how to find the strength to end this type of relationship.
My Life with a Sociopath gives you access to the raw, unedited messages between me and my husband, which together with my honest commentary, provides an insight into psychological abuse.  I hope that it may help those who find themselves in a similar situation and will be a voice for those who may have lost theirs.


What drew me into this is not only the fact that it’s a real life tale of someone’s experiences with a sociopath, but also I’m fascinated by the text messages aspect of it as it’s the way we all communicate a lot these days isn’t it, through messages.  I’ll be reading this soon and will put a review up as soon as I can.  In the meantime let me know if this book sounds interesting to you?
