Just wrapped up my final read for the month as I await the Trick or Treaters. A perfect Halloween read. Libby was seven years old when she escaped “The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas”. Her mother and two sisters were violently murdered in their farm house. Her brother Ben was found guilty. Decades have passed, and Libby visits her brother in prison. Uncertain of his guilt, she begins an investigation. Well written, suspenseful. disturbing.

Reggie She writes so dark. I read one by her and I had to go read a romance afterwards to wash Flynn away. 3mo
DivineDiana @Reggie Very dark. At times, I did question “Why am I reading this?”, but her writing drew me in. I wanted to know who was the killer! Some of the characters were sympathetic. Just caught in a web and trying to escape. 3mo

Read in one sitting. The pacing was great. I was hoping for a bigger twist at the end. Still would recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really liked this book. It was different from other books in this genre, and a lot of thought went into the mystery and the story. I loved the main character, as flawed as she was, she was very relatable. I definitely recommend this one - it‘s an older book but it was new to me and the story is not dated.

Such a good #audiobook! Recommend. It was a 4 star rating for sure. I very much enjoyed all the twists and trying to figure out who did what. I kept guessing and was wrong almost every time. (Warning: Some scenes were a bit uncomfortable to get through due to the young age of a character. )
Anyone watch the movie??

Another win for Flynn. 🤣
I love her marred, jaded characters. She provides you a reason not to like them but I seem to end up liking them.
Her stories, always twisty, don't go quite like you'd (well, maybe just I'd) expect.
Off to watch the movie now!!!

Currently listening to this audio and loving it and thought hmmm I should Google some good thriller movies and going through this list I stumble upon this. Lol I did not know this was a movie! Rotten tomatoes and metacritic sure don't seem to love it though.?
But oh well, what else do i have to do in Ontario's nth "lockdown" confusing status state?!

Reagan I liked this movie! 9mo
Andrea4 @Reagan well it will definitely be a watch when I finish the book! Plus Charlize Theron!! 9mo
Reagan @Andrea4 I actually preferred this one over Sharp Objects. I hope you enjoy it! 9mo

Loved this book! Classic Flynn- with a dark, disturbed, and often borderline dislikeable female lead, this book had enough twists and turns to keep my interest right to the end.

Libby Day lives in a constant state of depression, fighting to keep the memories of her family‘s murder locked away. Told through the eyes of Libby and her family, Dark Places switches between past and present, slowly approaching the final fatal night. I highly recommend this but be prepared for a twisted read that never lets up.

💛💛💛 I picked this one up after reading Gone Girl and absolutely loving it. Gillian Flynn does have a talent for creating disturbed and interesting characters. This book is 'dark in places', with lots of satanic rituals, blood and murder. It was a good read but I found Libby quite aggravating and the end was a disappointment.

Decent storyline! I'm still not much of a fan of her writing style, but the story drew me in. I figured out part of the ending, but not the whole ending and I appreciate that!

EadieB @WorldsOkayestStepMom It's ok but I liked this one better! This one was good too: (edited) 1y

#ThankfulThursday @Cosmos_Moon Thank you @UnidragonFrag for including me😁😱👻
I shy away from scary books so I didn‘t have many to choose from. The Movie with Charlize Theron was pretty scary too! A runner up would be Ruth Ware‘s In a Dark, Dark Wood🤓
1. While I‘ve had strange dreams where I could naturally fly I‘ve never seen a ghost or had a supernatural 👽experience.
2. I‘m thankful For my husband and two cats and that we are all healthy!

Worries find you easily enough without inviting them. With Diane, worries were almost physical beings, leechy creatures with latchhooks for fingers, meant to be vanquished immediately. Diane didn‘t worry, that was for less hearty women.

Being a Missouri girl, I appreciate Flynn consistently setting her stories in MO. Also typical, this book showed multiple perspectives and included those fun plot twists.

Great book!
Took me a while to read, but only through me being lazy the last few weeks, no reflection on the book.
Enjoyed the current day (no pun intended) / past day narrative to get all sides of the story, and not quite the ending I had expected.
All in all, a great read!
