And excellent thriller and character-exploration with an eerie atmosphere the whole way through. Well written, complex characters, an engaging plot with some twists, and a small-town that feels like it's right out of the midwest. Must read!!

Another slow reading month for me. I think I have a handle (for the most part) on work and life. Plus I finished Grey‘s Anatomy 😅 My favorite this month was a tie with 2 4 ✨ Sharp Objects which I read really fast, and Fake it Til You Bake it.

4✨I was engrossed in this story unable to put it down. Camille comes from a small town. Reluctantly she agrees to go back to write about it. There is one girl dead and another missing. She mostly partners with the police officer trying to figure it out. While there is all sorts of twists throughout the book I had an idea that the person who did it was the killer. I didn‘t like the cutting, heavy drinking, sex scenes, or drug use in this story.

Started the tagged book while I tried “ColorStreet” nails. My friend introduced them to me and I think I‘m in love! Fast easy nails that you peel apply and boom done! This is my test set that came with two strips and that fit 4 nails! Yay. So cute! 😍🥰💛

RedxoHearts Cute. I love nail strips too though I've never tried that brand. I recently got a couple new to me brands to try out soon. So I can have some cute festive Halloween nails 2mo

weak pick, because while I was largely entertained by this one, I can‘t say I was all that impressed :/ I read the whole thing in a sitting, so the usual intrigue and pace of Flynn was as interesting as ever. I predicted the outcome very early on though… Still. Seeing HOW it all came together was as fun as learning whodunnit :)

Very interesting book and kept me guessing. Gillian Flynn had a knack for writing characters that you hate to love and love to hate. All in all kept me interested and amused.

Wow….some parts were predictable, but so twisted that I still wasn‘t sure about the details. Normally any predictability would ruin it for me, but it was so dark and intense that I couldn‘t put it down anyways. Same thing with having an oftentimes unlikable main character, it still managed to keep me hooked.

My May #BookSpin landed on “A book on my actual TBR shelves“ and I chose a book I wanted to read for a while, A Perfect Blank by Rye Duran, a SciFi dystopian YA novel in verse. I would've liked more attention paid to the trans personality of the main character but even so, I enjoyed it. A pick!

Since the above is not in the Litsy database, I tagged instead Sharp Objects: finished a few days ago it got me a #BookSpinBingo.😉

Objectively, I feel like Flynn is a good writer. I enjoyed Gone Girl when I read it a few years back. And this one was written well enough, but it was extraordinarily graphic and icky in ways that made me very uncomfortable. I'm not usually squeamish about most things in books, but something about this one just didn't sit well with me. I don't think I'll be watching the miniseries.

jeannasser I thought I was the only one who didn‘t like this 😭 my problem was that I found the overall tone a little too drab and I predicted the mystery very easily 8mo

Unabridged Audiobook (6/10):
I knew less than an hour into this book who was guilty of the murders of two girls in this rural Missouri town. To me, so much of this story DRAGS because of this. No genuine mystery, but cool insights into human emotions and actions associated with them.

I read this book in a day. I could not put it down. I had seen the show before I read it and I really wish I hadn‘t because the book provided so much more. Almost all of the characters were female and they were all so flawed, so beautiful, so amazing.

This book has an awesome athmosphere! Flynn writes small town disturbing atmosphere so well!!! The story and writing style worked really well in Finnish as well. The characters were so believable and the story just kept creeping me out. I absolutely loved this (and hated it on the right level as well 😂). If you haven't read this yet you reallu should!

Finally sinking into this book. I‘ve actually never read anything by Gillian Flynn 🤐 which is strange because I will read any book recommended by Gillian Flynn. I paid an extra dollar for this version over the HBO TV cover. Enjoying so far, took me a few pages to slow down my brain enough for the noir writing style

My first book of 2021 🎉 This book was very intriguing. I did see the end coming but there were a lot of details to be filled in. I was absolutely hooked from the start! I wanted to know every detail about every character. 📖 I do suggest looking up trigger warnings 😊 Can't wait to dive into the show!

Such a great pick from @LapReader for #newyearwhodis 🎉 Can't wait to read another from your list! @monalyisha

I was interested in a book that was kind of sick and creepy, and this did deliver somewhat on that. But I'm wondering if Flynn hates women or if she was trying to paint a picture of a hometown that would fuck anyone up. Aside from two women from outside of the narrator's hometown, all the females in this book were portrayed as manipulative and vindictive. Most of them seemed more caricature than character. The denouement felt rushed. ⬇

kalinichta And the main character's decisions in many cases were questionable at best. That being said, I did like Flynn's development of the main character. I feel like I should give Flynn another chance to deliver on some decent story development chops, especially since this was her first novel. 2y
Bookish.SAM I had the same trouble with this one... could not even remotely comprehend the main character‘s actions. I later got sucked into the mini-series and the actress did a great job of making it make a little more sense...it also had a pretty fun soundtrack. 2y
kalinichta @Bookish.SAM I might watch that sometime then, thanks for the tip! Because her explanations of doing it for the story or so her 13-year-old half-sister would like her were not really cutting it for me. 2y

Another that sat for far too long... as it‘s title suggests it deals with sharp topics, brutal murders, town secrets, uncovering the truth, and the pain associated with this tragedy. Although this is tough, it‘s handled in a fast-paced and well written way, which keeps you interested and attempting to unlock the secret to the end. I *had* my suspicions, but was still shocked at the end. ⚠️❗️🤔#psychologicalthriller #murdermystery #recentlyread

I found this book wildly difficult to get into, which is unusual for any kind of murder mystery thrillers for me (I normally binge them). Once it got going I enjoyed it but I originally picked up this book because I was told the ending was shocking! Unpredictable! Gasp worthy! And I did not have that experience personally. It might be that my expectations were unrealistic, but my overall experience with this read was hit and miss.

First Gillian Flynn and I have to say now I'm interested in reading the others (only watched Gone Girl, plan on watching this series too).
Layers and layers of trauma, expected since it's Flynn. As grotesque as it was there was a sort of beauty in it & sense.
I never like judging mysteries by if you can guess whodunit, but for those who want to know, this one kept me wondering- so many plausible suspects, which is a chill in and of itself.

LikelyLibrarian Dark Places is my favorite. I love the way Flynn‘s novels give me the feels! 2y

One of the best thrillers I‘ve read. I loved Gillian Flynn‘s writing style and really felt the eeriness of the small town where the murder investigation occurs. Bonus, you can watch the amazing HBO series after.
