I feel like I have read every single “next Gone Girl” book. And NONE of them have ever risen to the occasion. It’s like I’m constantly chasing that high that a good thriller gives you. I figured that my journey for a decent, unpredictable thriller was going to continue as the years go on.
BUT THEN the selections for the December Book of the Month came out (I’ll do a review for this service later maybe, but here’s my affiliate link where you can try it out for your first book for $9.99 and a tote bag lmao). I was a little hesitant at first because I have to admit, I didn’t really like the cover. It looks like one of those typical angry ex-wife stories that producers seem to make into a movie every year.
It’s not. It’s honestly incredible. I’m usually pretty good at guessing twists and I was sitting through the first quarter of the book rolling my eyes a little bit, expecting that I could predict the ending once again. Hahahahahaha, NOPE.
In fact, it’s hard to give a true review of this book because I don’t want to give anything away.
So, I’ll say this: if you’re looking for the next Gone Girl, get ready for this book to Gone Girl you.
