bookshelves: dysfunctional-families, thriller, whodunit
Read from July 20 to 22, 2013

I feel like every Gillian Flynn book I read has even more fucked-up characters than the last. Except the first one I tackled was her most recent, Gone Girl, and finished up with this one (her debut), so maybe it's actually the opposite. In any case, Sharp Objects was totally horrifying and I loved every minute of it.

I did suspect the killer fairly early on, but then I kept rethinking my suspicion so that didn't detract from the book or make it any less suspenseful. As with Flynn's other books, I found this one totally riveting.

Trigger warning for cutting, though I actually didn't find it as triggering as I expected from the description. Still, I try to warn about these things in case others are more sensitive.
