Only 3 more books to go for my 30 before 30 list! You may recognize the author Gillian Flynn for her book Gone Girl, which is about to be released as a movie and her first screenplay. I did read Gone Girl a while ago (which was a great read) – but this read was another one of her novels – Dark Places.
Like Gone Girl, this is an intense crime/mystery novel with lots of twists and turns. Libby Day is a woman who is forced to relive her past as questions arise about her family’s murder when she was a child – including her testimony about who committed the crime. Not gonna lie, there is some pretty dark content in this novel. But it is entertaining and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Happy reading!
(and I would definitely recommend reading Gone Girl before seeing the moving)
