Re: Books!

@Chessca_H Yeh dark places is really good. I liked it just as much. There more characters so its a bit more involved.
I just googled and she has a third called 'sharp objects'. Im going to track it down and read it and report back within the next 3 weeks!!

Gotta add The Center Cannot Hold: My Journey Through Madness by Elyn R. Saks.

 

Amazing and inspiring book. Elyn describes her journey through life with schizophrenia from a very young age, constantly fighting to stay on top and to achieve her goals. Apart from being super interesting and engaging, it's incredibly useful for anyone who wants to learn more about the experience of schizophrenia and what it might be like to progress through various milestones in life with it.

@Chessca_H
Ok so i found "sharp objects" and read it in two days.
It was good not great... worth reading if you like her style of stories. So in order of preference
1) Gone girl
2) Dark places
3) Sharp objects

@EloiseRose Not sure if I'll give Sharp Objects a go if that's the case, might change my mind though. I finished reading Dark Places the other day and wow the storyline is a lot more intense that Gone Girl O.o

Re: Books!

 

@jvkn I love To Kill a Mockingbird. I think I'll read the sequel and see how it goes.

 

@hartley_ I read Gone Girl and thought it was a good, fun, crazy read. The movie is a pretty faithful adaptation. My only real complaint is that it softens the husband. In the novel, he's way more of a jerk.

 

On Kindle, I just finished reading Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg who used to work at Google and is now the COO at Facebook. This is a book about women and business and I loved it so much that I bought the paperback so I could loan it to all my girlfriends. It's eye-opening and really inspiring.

 

I don't know what I'll read next. I'm thinking of picking up a classic.

 

Sharing a favorite... The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende. I love love love this novel about three generations of a family, mainly about the women. It's very magical.
