Book Reviews - August

Yes, you read that right... August!  I've finally got round to writing this post on the one book I finished in August, which also happens to be the last book I finished.  My reading has really slowed down - time has really passed in a blur these last few months!

I wanted to get this in quickly before the end of the year, so that my reviews are complete for 2015.  I've decided not to continue with book reviews on the blog, as I don't really enjoy writing them and I'm not sure they're that interesting as I don't want to risk giving any spoilers!  But it was worth a go.

Gone Girl
- Gillian Flynn

This book was really good!  I've mentioned previously that I watched the film for this first, which was excellent.  It then inspired me to read all the books by Gillian Flynn, and I've reviewed her other two here already.  (Sharp Objects and Dark Places.)

This is her third book and it was so good.  I think it would have been better if I'd not already seen the film, as I knew what was going to happen.  I still enjoyed it, though, and would most definitely recommend it.  It is dark, intense and very intriguing, keeping you wondering and questioning (well, it would have done if I hadn't seen the film!)  A great book, which leaves you thinking about it after you've finished reading.  Read it!

  1. If we don't try these things we don't know, so good for you for giving it a go. I'm exactly the same as you and have these great ideas for things to do with the blog and then once I start them end up having second thoughts, it becomes too much like a chore and that's not the point of it, however it is all part of the journey so there is no harm in that.
    I hope you are keeping well my love, take care x x

    1. I agree Gem, it's worth trying these things but no point carrying on if we're not enjoying it. It's meant to be fun! x

  2. Great book! I enjoyed it so much I even found a Swedish copy for my Dad to read.I think I also read it in August actually... and did not see the film first, still have not seen it actually. xxx
