THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION:  Who are the key players in your current book? (or current themes, if nonfiction)

I’m currently reading…

It’s October and the Spookathon Read-a-thon officially started today, so it’s time to read some thrillers/mysteries!  You can find more information about the Spookathon here: Spookathon TBR

Up next I think I’ll read…

Goodreads

I bought the following book(s) in the past week…

I did really well this past week with my goal of not buying anymore books until I read some more of my TBR books sitting on my shelves.  I didn’t buy any new books this past week and I’m currently reading books I already owned.  But…I think that’s about to change!  Bookoutlet has a big Booktoberfest sale starting tomorrow.  So, I think I see some new books in my future!  😉

  THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION:  Who are the key players in your current book? (or current themes, if nonfiction)

I am currently reading Night Film by Marisha Pessl.  I’m 80 pages in and so far the key characters are:

  • Scott McGrath-a disgraced investigative journalist
  • Stanislas Cordova-a reclusive film director who has a “secret society” of followers of his gruesome films
  • Ashley Cordova-daughter of Stanislas Cordova found dead at 24, believed to be suicide, child prodigy and amazing pianist since childhood

    1. It is very good so far and hard to put down. I’m looking forward to Sharp Objects. Gone Girl is the only Gillian Flynn novel I’ve read so far. I’m looking forward to trying another one of her thrillers.

    I read Sharp Objects last week–it’s her first novel and although it’s quite good her more recent books show a lot of growth. Hope you enjoy it.

    1. Thanks. I’ve only read Gone Girl before so I’m looking forward to more of her thrillers. I’ve heard good things about Sharp Objects, but it’s good to know it’s Gillian Flynn’s first book so that I don’t set the expectations too high.
