After reading «The Chalk Man» in 2018, I immediately became a fan of C.J. Tudor’s writing! She creates the most gripping and thrilling plots, infused by the terror of simple common things that feel too real. Last year, I read her other book «The Taking of Annie Thorne» that was just as incredible as the first one.
And now in 2020, we got «The Other People»! Her next book (my edition of «The Other People» had the first chapter of it) is coming out next year and sounds very interesting.
I might have made a mistake to binge read Gillian Flynn books at the beginning of my blogging career. Ever since that point, no thrillers ever came close to twisted and dark characters of Gillian Flynn.
There were years in my reading life when I solely read crime, thrillers, and mysteries. I’ve accumulated quite a collection of books in that particular genre and sometimes the need for something a little bit more mysterious comes knocking on the door, making it impossible to resist.
This month I’ve been very lucky with the books I picked up, quite a lot of them turned out to be 4 and 5 star reads. «Every Last Lie» by Mary Kubica was no exception. When I finished this book I had to take a little break because (A) there were still tears running down my cheeks and (B) the novel was so intense and made me feel so many different emotions that I sat down for a little bit just to gather my thoughts and taking a few deep breaths.

You know how much I like mysteries. No! I LOVE mysterious mysteries and thrilling thrillers. I love crime novels with a lot of unanswered questions and then finally you get to the end of the story and EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE.
Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice” of Kinnakee, Kansas.” She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer.
Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee.
As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.
It feels like July was the busiest month so far (and it feels like I say that every month), equally so at work and “school”. I finally finished my papers for the Lawyers Bar and delivered them in the last week of July! The first phase is done, over, completed… I intend to not think about it for at least 8 more happy weeks.

This book was an amazing read. The mystery, the drama and most importantly the CHARACTERS. I bow before Gillian Flynn for being able to create something so deep, at some points even disturbing; to be able to switch between characters, between personalities and yet the book felt complete and harmonized.
I absolutely loved LOVED it!
I know it was a late read for me considering that the book was Goodreads Choice Awards winner in 2012, most people have already seen the movie and all the buzz around it has been slowly dying. But anyone who hasn’t had the time or will to pick it up and read it should definitely do it!
Mystery and crime are my favorites genres by far and I have read so many books in this genre, however Gone Girl surprised me on every single page, it was unique and throughout the whole book I’ve never gotten a “I’ve read it before” feeling.
