Let’s talk about books! Here’s what I’ve read over the past few months:
So every thriller has girl in the title lately and I read this right after All the Missing Girls so I didn’t think I would have two I liked in a row but they were both good and so different. This book was super dark and twisty and touched on some really deep issues. I read a lot of reviews about how much people hated this book but I think it’s mostly because it’s really hard to relate to the main character, Ani, who is a complete sociopath. I felt the same way about her but still thought it was well written and interesting.
This book is about the intertwined lives of a dysfunctional suburban neighborhood. It went from a solid 4 to a 3 for me about halfway through. I was really interested at first but it got to the point where I just wanted to finish it and see what happened. Also, I wasn’t really a fan of the ending, for most of the neighbors there was no real ending or it was unrealistic. Not terrible but not my favorite.
I listened to this on Audible and I though it was going to be kind of like Desperate Housewives. It was more like the SNL version of Desperate Housewives. I laughed out loud a few times, but for the most part it was just too much.
It pains me to say, I didn’t even finish this book. I really wanted to try it and like it because it’s J.K. Rowling but I just could not get into it no matter how hard I tried. I eventually just gave up. This makes me think she should stick to YA or fantasy….
