Goodreads Monday: February 4th

Goodreads Monday comes courtesy once again of Lauren’s Page Turners.  Every Monday I will randomly pick a book on my Goodreads to read shelf and pair it with the cover image and Goodreads description.  This week I picked another favorite number of mine, 72, and went the book that was there.

Goodreads Summary

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

My Thoughts

I have yet to read anything by Gillian Flynn and I always hear such positive things about her.  This summary has me hooked after the simple statement of “fresh from a brief stay at psych hospital.”  That right there has my interest peaked!


It is still $9.99 on the Kindle.  This may be a book I get if I see it at a thrift store.  It is not offered in a hardcover and I much prefer reading hardcover over paperback and will typically just go for it on the Kindle then.  If it goes on a flash sale for the Kindle, consider it part of my library from that point on!  What do you think of Gillian Flynn?

  1. I loooove Gillian Flynn’s books. They are dark and ehm not very happy but I’m always totally absorbed by them. I read Gone Girl before the hype btw so I really felt I discovered an awesome author on my own 😂 I hope you enjoy her writing when you decide to pop your Flynn cherry 😝
