What I will be watching!

Sharp_Objects_Poster

This 8 episode series is based on Gillian Flynn’s best seller Sharp Objects.

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

This was a fantastic book! It made me laugh, angry, cry, and bite my nails.  Never has a book made me feel so many emotions at once.  Krisitn Hannah is such a talented writer which she proved in this book and her previous book, The Nightingale.   There were many times where I found myself holding my breath due to the suspense she was able to weave into the story.  The main character, Leni, and her parents move to Alaska to get away from “the man” in the lower 48 states.  It is 1974 and Leni’s dad is suffering from nightmares and PTSD from being a POW in the Vietnam war.  Moving to Alaska is his plan to get better.  Leni hopes it is true because he takes his anger out on her mother, Cora.  Leni’s courage and love for her family is inspiring.  I highly recommend this 5 star book that will keep you turning pages to the very end.

This moving debut novel explores the cultural divides around class and the gun debate through the eyes of one girl, living on the edges of society, trying to find her way forward.

I grabbed this audio book at my local library.

The Book Blogger Hop is put on by The Coffee Addicted Writer . There is a weekly prompt featuring a book related question.

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION IS SUBMITTED BY Megan @ Ginger Mom & the Kindle Quest

This weeks prompt is…

If you were stranded on a deserted island, which ONE book could you not live without?

My answer…

Jane Eyre

janeeyre

I pick this book because not only is it one of my favorites but it has everything you would want in a story.  There is friendship, death, tragedy, triumph, mystery, horror, and love. Jane is one of the most resilient characters in fictional literary history and I would need her inspiration to survive on an island with only one book!

    I’ve never read Jane Eyre, but it must be good to be your desert island book! And ooh Sharp Objects I have to say I’m curious, I would totally watch that if I had HBO. 🙂

    Sharp Objects sounds really good. How are you liking The Long Way? Annemieke and I just started A Closed and Common Orbit and I love it so far. 🙌🙌🙌

    I would cheat with the desert island book and bring a bind up of some kind like my Wrinkle quintet, ha ha. Or maybe 1Q84 the 1K plus page Hirakami. I think I could read that one through a few times and pick up new things each time. 📚

    Have a wonderful new week. 💜
