Pages that Turn - The Grownup

Today was one of those days where strolling through the book section at Target was high on my list. Sometimes when you don't know what you're looking for and you enter a large chain bookstore, it can drive you into a frenzy. I like stores with smaller selections because in that moment, they carry most of the you must read this today titles.

I love Gillian Flynn. I even reviewed an advanced copy of Gone Girl before it became huge. Dark Places is good. Sharp Objects is even better.

I've been wanting to get my hands on The Grownup for a while now and even though it's a short story, I knew I wanted to hold the book in my hand when I read all its pages. I'm an avid Kindle user but some books are meant to be smelled, felt, smudged, and have real pages that turn. 

I won't say too much about the book because it's a short one. I will say this...any book that begins with talking about giving hand jobs for more than a paragraph and ends with fear of the unknown is my kind of book.

A must read.
