Hello lovely people of the internet! In an attempt to try and have this blog be more personal, I’ve decided to undergo some challenges in order to help you guys get to know me better. For those of you who don’t know me on a personal level, I really love to read, which is probably the reason comics and manga appeal to me so greatly. Rather than talk about comics, I’ve decided to go the route of straight up literature and talk my favorite books by doing one of those neat challenge thingies. So, without further ado, here’s the 30 day book challenge I found online. I’m attaching the image so you guys can play along too, if you’d like.
So Day 1’s prompt is “Best Book You Read Last Year”, which is aughhhhhh so hard, because I read so many books at such an alarming pace when I have the chance to. But I’ll have to say it’s a tie between ‘Dark Places’ and ‘Gone Girl’ by Gillian Flynn. I won’t spoil the plots for either, but both were crazy thrillers I just could NOT put down. It’s been a long time since I powered through a book like that, but I just had to know what was going to happen next in both of the books. I will say that the endings to both books also infuriated me in different ways. Neither really left me with a satisfied feeling, but rather with a little twinge in my gut, still hungry for more of the story. It’s a bit unsettling, but hey, that’s how a thriller is supposed to be, right? In short, Gillian Flynn is literally a fantastic author, and I really want to read ‘Sharp Objects’ soon.
Have any of you read either of the books? We should have a discussion! Write to me in the comments or message me on my page so we can have a book talk.
Sorry this blurb was so short, I didn’t want to spoil two (sort of) mainstream popular books for anyone. More tomorrow!.
