I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

Dark Places

Dark Places - Gillian Flynn I was quite disappointed with this book. I really enjoyed "Sharp Objects" and was hoping this would be as engrossing of a read. Sadly, that wasn't the case. The extensive use of foul language was a bit off-putting. It seemed as though every other page had at least one profanity, if not more. I enjoyed the mystery aspect of the story immensely though. I was kept guessing until the very end.
