REFRESHING READS

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker is asked to cover the murders of two preteen girls in her small hometown. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows. 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.

“I’m one of those annoying people that will have to read the book before I see the movie and then point out all of the flaws in the movie because of course the book is usually always better.  I felt that way with the first of Flynn’s books made into a movie, Gone Girl.    Well this time, I’m doing it backwards.  I watched the Sharp Objects stand-alone series on HBO last fall and whew. . . what a binge that was!  I had to get my hands on the book but realized, this is one I couldn’t just keep to myself.  I can’t wait to dive into this one with the rest of the book club!  P.s. watching the series first is not required but I wouldn’t encourage you not to!”  -- Shannon
