Just Finished: Gone Girl + 4 others

If you’re ready for a modern mystery with egotistical characters, unfathomable plot lines and a wild ride that will keep you on edge, grab Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn for your next read. I tore through this book in August and knew that it would most likely be the best book I’d read in 2012. That’s high praise given I still have a lot of reading to do, but so far it’s holding up. My mom is reading it right now and I can’t wait to see what she thinks of it.

Today I’m reviewing:

  • Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn
  • 500 Places To Take Your Kids Before They Grow Up, by Holly Hughs
  • When It Happens To You, by Molly Ringwald
  • The Paris Wife, by Paula McLain
  • Wonderstruck, by Brian Selznick

For my full reviews of all of these books go to the 2012 Books and Reviews page. I’m lucky to have read a lot a good books this year, but they are all so different. See which ones strike your fancy.

Got a Tween? If you’re looking for a visually stunning book and heartfelt story for your tween reader, please check out Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick. He’s the author who wrote The Invention of Hugo Cabret (which was made into the movie Hugo) and it does not disappoint.

We’re all so busy and increasingly our spare moments are being shifted to our iPads, TVs and streaming media. When on earth do you fit in the time to read? Or do you?

  1. I’ve already admitted I’ve seen to stop reading books. You’ve added fuel to the fire of my desire to resume literacy. Great use of picmonkey, Laura!

  2. Thanks for the great review. Have you ever done a top 10 list? I’d love to see it because I’m certain I would love every title.

  3. Thanks for the review. Gone Girl sounds like my kind of a book.
    I mentioned the book to hubby and he just got it for my Kindle! :D
