My book reviews are getting later and later each month. I know I spoke last time about possibly not continuing, but I wanted to review this months books as they were so good!
- Gillian Flynn
Back in February I read Gillian Flynn's first book - Sharp Objects - which was very dark and very good. Her second book - Dark Places - is just as dark and twisted! I was hooked from the very first line.
The book flits between today and about 25 years ago when violence struck the Day family, and delves into the truth of what happened on that blood-soaked night. If you want a bright, happy, cheery read, then keep away! It's definitely not a feel-good book. I loved it, though - it kept me intrigued and interested throughout. I highly recommend it.
Before I Go To Sleep
- S J Watson
I'd seen a trailer for this at the cinema, but never got round to watching it. However, I realised the film was based on a book so bought the book. Ooooh, this was really good too! Not as disturbing and twisted as Dark Places, a bit nicer to read despite being a bit of a thriller and having some scary and tense moments.
Something has occurred in the main character's past to cause her to have amnesia. Every morning she wakes up not knowing where she is or what has happened, and anything she learns during the day she forgets again when sleeping that night. I won't give anything away, but it is such a good book. A real page-turner, I couldn't put it down! Really loved this - definitely read it! I want to see the film now.
