Sorry, I have been non-existent the past couple of weeks. We’re trying to get ready for a garage sale this weekend, my sister and her family are coming to visit in a few weeks and then my period was here and knocked me on my butt for most of last week. For my book club this month, I’m hosting and picked a book that sounded pretty interesting; Still Missing by Chevy Stevens.
I started it on Sunday and finished it Monday afternoon. One of the best books I have ever read. I couldn’t put this book do
On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old realtor, had three goals—sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.
Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape—her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.
Still Missing is that rare debut find–a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted debut novel.
This book had so many twists and turns I found myself wanting to scream and cry at the same time and I never saw the end coming!
I started another book Monday night and I’m about 100 or so pages in so far, it was kind of a slow start, but it’s really picking up now and I can’t wait to read more tonight. Night Road by Kristin Hannah.
For a mother, life comes down to a series of choices.
To hold on…
To let go..
Which road will you take?
For eighteen years, Jude Farraday has put her children’s needs above her own, and it shows—her twins, Mia and Zach—are bright and happy teenagers. When Lexi Baill moves into their small, close knit community, no one is more welcoming than Jude. Lexi, a former foster child with a dark past, quickly becomes Mia’s best friend. Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable.
Jude does everything to keep her kids safe and on track for college. It has always been easy– until senior year of high school. Suddenly she is at a loss. Nothing feels safe anymore; every time her kids leave the house, she worries about them.
On a hot summer’s night her worst fears come true. One decision will change the course of their lives. In the blink of an eye, the Farraday family will be torn apart and Lexi will lose everything. In the years that follow, each must face the consequences of that single night and find a way to forget…or the courage to forgive.
Has anyone read either one of these books? Thoughts?
