I don’t know why I put off reading The Goldfinch for so long. I’ve liked Tartt’s other books, this book won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and Jess and Jen both gave it good reviews. Finally I took the plunge. And I loved it!

I finished this book while laying by the pool, or maybe it was the beach, on our trip to Mexico. Great page turner. Thanks for the recommendation, Anandi!

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Our book club at work has been revived. I missed the meeting, but was told this was the next book to read. So I did. I really liked the premise. A woman whose family was murdered when she was a child. She was there but has problems remembering. Her brother has been in jail all this time…. she starts to investigate. It’s a murder mystery with a twist. While I really liked it, I thought it was an odd choice for a work book club. Some of the scenes are really gruesome! I had to skip a few pages.
