Book Reviews - February

Another month of 2015 is over, and I'm here with a brief review of the books I read in February... just two again...

Worth Dying For: (Jack Reacher 15)
- Lee Child

The next in the Jack Reacher books, after reading number 14 (61 Hours) last month.  For some reason I struggled to get into this at first, but not through any fault of the book.  I think I just had other things going on, so didn't really get the chance to sit and read it enough.  Once I did get into it, however, I was hooked and really enjoyed it!

Jack Reacher has ended up in another small town, whose residents are being controlled by a nasty bunch of brothers.  There are mysteries past and present to be solved... lucky Reacher is there then!  I won't give anything away, but it was more typical Jack Reacher shenanigans, with a touch of sadness.

Sharp Objects

- Gillian Flynn

I went to see 'Gone Girl' at the cinema, and loved the film.  I later found out it was based on the book by Gillian Flynn, so I requested all three of her novels for Christmas.  'Sharp Objects' is the first one.

Oooooh, what can I say?!  I couldn't put it down - so good!  It's pretty dark, somewhat disturbing, and keeps you intrigued throughout.  Camille is a journalist who reluctantly has to go back to the hometown she's kept away from for many years, in order to report on a year old murder and a currently missing girl.  A more intense and sinister read than the escapism of Jack Reacher, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Keep away if you like a cheery read - this isn't exactly uplifting!  It sticks with you, though, and keeps you thinking about it.

I'm looking forward to reading the next book by this author!

  1. Thanks for the reviews, you do better than me as I find it hard to get through one book a month usually. I have read Gone Girl and enjoyed that so will definately read Sharp Objects as my next book.

  2. Im reading Worth Dying For now, OH has just finished 61 Hours ( I read it first) and hes started Wanted Man (which I found a bit boring). All in all we are enjoying Lee Childs writing. :o)

  3. Sounds as though you have had some great reads!! xx

  4. I might put Gillian Flynn on my list as well. I have not seen Gone Girl but I like the look of it! I am now reading something I bought just for the title ( I do that a lot... ) the brief histoy of the dead, strange and almost impossible to put down. I will lend you my copy if you are interrested.x
