I was away this week and so had plenty of time to read my latest book. I read Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn, the author of Gone Girl. Being away is also why my Thursday and Friday posts didn’t get up! I’m sorry, I really struggled to find WiFi while I was away, crazy, I know.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t enjoy this novel as much as I enjoyed Gone Girl, I shouldn’t really compare them because they aren’t part of a series but it was hard not to since I just read Gone Girl. I found this story a little more predictable than the other novel. That isn’t to say I didn’t enjoy the story. This mystery about two young girls killed in a small-town in Missouri and the reporter charged to uncover the story. I read the book within the week and that’s usually a good indication that I enjoyed it, I am the type of person who can put a book down and never pick it up again if I’m not enjoying it.
If you like mysteries, I would recommend this book. I think Flynn is an excellent writer and this short novel is a great read.
Happy Saturday Everyone!
