I haven't had as much time to read lately but I've managed to squeeze in a few books here and there. Let's talk about them, shall we?
From emotionally-fragile to emotionally-unstable: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. This book is crazy popular right now with book clubs and 30 somethings all over the place. Warning: It's not possible to give this book a review without a ton of spoilers. Basically, it's a chick with borderline personality disorder (probably with some histrionic and narcissistic features) who takes extreme measures to get back at her husband. This is my second Gillian Flynn novel and I find her to be a little bit too heavy on the foreshadowing and clues that she drops in the beginning stages of novels. Despite my need to guess the ending from the beginning of every book I read, it was wonderfully written and a great read. Recommended for Psych 100 students and arm-chair psychologists everywhere.
19 Minutes by Jodi Picoult which I enjoyed more.
Getting a little more semi-local: A Secret Gift by Ted Gup. If you're a native or resident of the Akron/Canton area of Ohio, you might enjoy this nonfiction book. It's about the author's grandfather who anonymously gave away money to poor people during the Depression. I thought it was interesting and makes you want to do something like that, too. Recommended for residents of the NE quadrant of Ohio and Depression-era Old People.
