Gone Girl and Sharp Objects from Gillian Flynn.

I stumbled upon Gone Girl last year when I was in UAE.  Books there are not cheap unlike here in Manila,  I was between job hunting, homesickness and saving money for bus fares.  I asked a good friend on how to upload an e-book for my phone and laptop, after figuring out the hows of installing and uninstalling. I was reading Gone Girl like a maniac..It was a feat reading an e -book from your phone, it requires talent, patience and whipping of  granny glasses every now and then,  I finished the damn e- book for one week,  It was addicting,, moving and compelling. My desire to see Gillian Flynn is added to my bucket list. Now comes another thriller.


Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming..

Cried buckets after reading this, see for yourself why.
