Happy Sunday, folks! I hope everyone is getting their readin’ on today! Time for some more Standalone Sunday recommendations. One of my favorite parts of the week. Let’s see what recommendations we’ve got for us today, shall we?
Standalone Sunday is a feature created by yours truly where each Sunday we will feature a standalone book (not part of a series) that you loved or would recommend! There’s tons of focus on books that are part of a series… I thought it’d be nice to focus on some standalone novels, too!
Feel free to join in on this weekly feature by creating your own Standalone Sunday post! And you’re more than welcome to use the image I created. Link to your post in the comments below or make sure you link back to this post so I can check it out and add you down below!
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
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.
Sharp Objects is one of those books you’ll never forget! It’s creepy and mysterious, with strange characters that you’ll grow to love reading about. I haven’t read many Gillian Flynn books, but this is absolutely one of my favorites of hers. If you haven’t read this one yet, you need to asap! It’s unforgettable.
