Dark Places (Review)
reviews / November 18, 2014

I totally and absolutely loved this book.

As is the case in Flynn’s other books (Gone Girl and Sharp Objects), the premise of Dark Places is, well … dark. And the narrator, Libby, isn’t exactly sympathic. As a reader, I actually felt kind of guilty that I didn’t sympathize with Libby more.

Fragile Eternity (Review)
reviews / November 6, 2014

To be honest, this was my least favourite of the books in the series.

And just because it was my least favourite doesn’t mean that it wasn’t good. It was. It just means that it wasn’t quite as memorable as the others for me.

The Awakening (Review)
