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. Continue reading “July 2016 Wrap UP”
For me, March was not the best reading month, was always busy at work and at uni and it was hard to squeeze some time for reading in between. But I figured out that I tend to read way more when I have an e-book either on my tablet or on my phone (usually on my phone), as I travel a lot during the week it is easier to pull out your phone and keep reading, sometimes even in classes (don’t tell anyone please!).
I’ve read a total of 7 books and I DNF’d one..
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
- Stardust by Neil Gaiman (and even watched a movie)
- Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
- Kill School: Slice by Karen Carr
- Runes by Ednah Walters
Haruki Murakami just wasn’t for me. His short stories told me nothing and it was too boring to continue reading. I am not completely giving up on his writing but I might wait until a more appropriate set of mind before giving him another chance.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and Kill School by Karen Carr were by far my most favorite books this month. Karen Carr is already working on a sequel and I cannot wait for the next book!
Hope this month brought you some very good reads as well. I would love to know what you’ve read last month and what you are currently reading. Let me know in the comments below.
Book: Gone Girl
Author: Gillian Flynn
Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson
Rating: ★★★★★ / 5
Oh, Amazing Amy!
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.
