Recommended Reading-5 Book Recommendations for You!


After a few weeks of just not being into it, I've finally gotten back on track with my reading! This week, of course, was a bit easier because it's April break and we can't really go anywhere. Now that I'm back in the swing of things, I'm feeling pretty confident that  In the meantime, I wanted to share with you 5 books that I recently read and enjoyed.


1. Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn- This book was the Sisters Book Club read for March. I was thoroughly creeped out by every detail of the storyline but just could not stop reading it. Plus, I felt like I one what was going to happen, so I had to finish to confirm it. I was wrong, of course.
I know that they made this into a mini-series, but I'm not too sure I can handle watching it, especially since I've heard it doesn't stray too far from the book.

2. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn- See what I did? As soon as I realized that Gillian Flynn authored more books, I knew I had to read them. This one sat for a bit since I checked it out from the library shortly before the whole social distancing/distance learning situation, but I finally finished it. Since the movie was released a few years ago, I had heard some mumbling about the storyline, but it didn't ruin the book for me and there were many twists that I didn't anticipate. I am not thrilled with how the author ends the story, but overall the book is amazing.

3. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn- My favorite of the 3 GF reads. It is, to me, the least creepy, but still completely captivating. I found the characters a little more relatable and each time I thought I had everything figured out, my theory was incorrect. 

4. The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides- This was the Sisters Book Club read for April. I guess I enjoy "thrillers" more than I had realized and this one is great. Another book that kept me guessing the entire way through, although my "joke" guess wasn't too far off. I'm not sure if this author has written anything else, but I'd absolutely be interested in reading more from him. 

5. The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks- Okay, so I just started this one yesterday. However, it's a Nicholas Sparks book and, based on the few books of his that I have read, you can't go wrong with an NS book. The reviews I have read are varied, but I'm enjoying it so far. I'm hoping to be relaxed a bit after reading all of those more chaotic books recently.
