Donna TarttThis was my favorite read of 2014. Beautifully written; stimulating and fascinating and long. Long in a good way! Although not your typical "page turner", I found myself eager to get back to reading it each time I picked it up again, and thoroughly enjoying the sprawling, ambitious story.
Gillian Flynn's other books. (This is assuming that you have read GONE GIRL, and if not, I'd recommend that, too!)
True to form, this one is addictive and haunting, clever and disturbing. It made my skin crawl so bad I had to put it down and take deep breaths before picking it back up again. And just when you are positive you can predict the ending, it's completely unpredictable. I loved that about this book.
I am in the middle of this one right now. I had to read a couple lighthearted books in between. Same twisted mind, completely different story. I have a feeling when I finish I am going to be eagerly awaiting the day Gillian Flynn publishes her next thriller.
It had been awhile since I read anything by Jodi, but her always reliable, poignant and thought provoking style keeps me entertained. Leaving Time is her latest novel and it doesn't disappoint. After I finished The Goldfinch, this was my follow up beach read.
Big Little Lies
There were some really important messages and themes mixed in with entertaining small town adult drama, portrayed from various Mom's points of view. I wouldn't put it at the top of the list, but I was happy I read it.
The Good Girl
The Good Girl was gripping and powerful. I loved this one and would highly recommend it.
What are you guys reading? What should I read next?
