A life without books is a very hollow existence indeed. Nothing else has the power to make me laugh out loud, cry like a baby, or scream in rage like reading a book can. I am open to all genres and am willing to give almost anything a try, even if it's outside my normal scope. My faves are thrillers/suspense but I am also into paranormal, drama, chick lit and YA. This is my first blog, so forgive my ignorance and if you see something I can improve, do tell. :)
This is a decent book for a debut, but don't expect to be gripping the edge of your seat in suspense. There were some comparisons to Gone Girl (is every female suspense novel to be compared to Gone Girl forever??) but the delicious evil and malevolence were absent in this book. I did like how different characters told the story from their point of view and the switch between time periods helped make this novel feel fresh and enjoyable.
