Gillian Flynn – How does she do it?

leave a comment »

I taking a  short break from reading Dark Places written by Gillian Flynn, the author of Gone Girl.  The main character is not likable and there is a truly gory murder (I’m not giving anything away…it happens in the first few pages) of a pitiful family. Just like Gone Girl,  I hate to put the book down.  She is the most addictive author ever.  She sucks you in, and doesn’t let go. A highly recommended book, although I haven’t finished it yet.

I would also recommend flowI read, and enjoyed a book that wasn’t a mystery! The main character was a young woman who “aged out” of foster care.  My heart broke for her.  Another thumbs up from Bev.

A third recommendation is  Dead Cat Bounce by Sarah Graves.  Back to mysteries for me.  This is a series about a woman who left a job in finance in NYC and bought a rundown house in Maine.  She becomes quite the handyperson.  Yes, it is a mystery, so there is a murder to solve.  Mom should put this series on her list of books to read.  (I hope you know what the title means…it is a financial term.)

I’ve got to go…Dark Places is calling.  (Then I have Flynn’s first book Sharp Objects to read. )  Does the Up bracelet yell at you when you are up all night reading an addictive book?
