  1. Someone recommended The Goldfinch to me too!
    Gone Girl seems to divide people; some say it truly is gripping,while others call it horrible!
    I’ve heard good things about The Kite Runner,and The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a favourite of many! I should read both books!
    Finally The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao seems very interesting.I think it won a prestigious literary prize as well!


    • I’ve read the first chapter The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and so far it’s piqued my interest.

      I’ve heard mixed reviews about Gone Girl too. I get the feeling it’s either a you love it or you hate it book. I’m not sure about The Goldfinch though. There are some die hard Donna Tart fans out there that didn’t like it. If I decide to read it I’ll have to get read on my eReader because it’s such a behemoth.


      • No I haven’t, but I’ve seen a lot of people reading it and it has a place in the bestsellers section of my local book store, so I had the impression that it was quite good. And Dark Places? Flynn’s other novel right? How far are you into it?


      • Dark Places is Flynn’s second novel and I’m about 100 pages in. I like the premise, but sometimes for me it rambles on a bit and I lose focus and interest. So far, I think she’s a pretty solid writer.


      • It’s hard to say since not even 100 pages into it. So far, I’m enjoying it. She’s very descriptive, which bores me a bit, but what I’m gathering is necessary for the story and I understand other readers like/prefer a lot of description.

        Where I am in the book it’s a maybe for recommendation. I’ll give you a more definitive answer this weekend. I plan to get as close to finished as possible.
