I rarely recommend books to anyone. I always have this fear that they will spend a few days of their life reading a book I told them about and absolutely hate it. Then blame me for wasting three days of their life.
“I missed out on a “Golden Girls” marathon thanks to you and your stupid book. You have such taste for shit.”
So I am really stepping out on a limb here. You must put down your cocktail and jump in the family mobile and race to your nearest bookstore and pick up, “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn.
The story is based on a married couple that has to move from New York City to Missouri, due to hard times and a family illness. The husband runs a bar there purchased with his wife’s money (her family has money because of a book series her parents wrote). Nick and Amy were five years into their marriage when one day, Amy goes missing and it doesn’t look good.
There are so many twists and turns in this book it will make your head spin. You will not want to put the book down. Then when you finish it you will think to yourself, “Can there really be people out there that nuts?”
It truly blows my mind how the author put all this together. It makes my head hurt thinking about it.
So if you are looking for the next book to read this summer…it has to be this one. I don’t think you will be disappointed. But if you are, just forever blame me for your wasted hours that could have been spent on Pinterest.
