Currently reading: “Sharp Objects” by Gillian Flynn

Howdy, friends.

This is what I’m reading now:

Sharp

Here is a review from USA Today.

I love to read an author’s first novel, and this is Flynn’s. I read “Gone Girl” earlier this year and loved it … right up until the very end. This book has already completely sucked me in — I know it’s a good book when I wake up early on the days I’m not running at the crack of dawn and just read instead. I love those quiet early hours. And the entire pot of coffee I usually drink sitting there.

I’m about 100 pages in, and I’m loving it. Flynn is a writer for Entertainment Weekly (here is her very funny profile of herself), so the only surprise I have is that the main character, a journalist, uses words like “puff piece.” In 16 years as a journalist, I don’t think I’ve ever heard someone say that. “Evergreen”, “profile”, “feature” and “bright”, maybe, but never puff piece. Maybe we aren’t doing enough puff pieces??

Happy reading.

    I love reading in the morning too! Although it can sometimes make it hard to start working on days I work at home. Some books are just too hard to put down :)
