Since my vacation is probably one of the most exciting things to happen to me recently, and I've already updated you a little on the whole trip & wedding I photographed while I was there... I thought I'd let you in on the book I read while I was there!
Sharp Objects was Gillian Flynn's debut novel... I've read all 3 of her books, after reading and becoming a big fan of Gone Girl. Which is still, by far, my favorite.
Gripping & definitely more than just a little creepy, Sharp Objects follows reporter Camille Preaker and the return to her hometown to investigate the disappearance/murder of 2 young girls. Camille hadn't been back in 8 years and had recently completed a stay at a psychiatric hospital. The girl is gorgeous, but she's gone problems. The story also follows the strained relationship with her mother, and a new found relationship with her much younger half-sister.
It was the perfect book to read on the beach! Because is was a short book (about 200 pages on my Kobo), it wasn't daunting and I easily got through several chapters each afternoon between sipping my Pina Coladas and frolicking in the waves!
Are you a fan of Gillian Flynn's?
also, there's still time to head over to My So Called Chaos and vote for me for the "Marvelous Mommy" award! Thanks again to everyone who has voted!!
