Title: Dark Places

Author: Gillian Flynn

Summary via Goodreads: Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice” of Kinnakee, Kansas.” She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.


Beginning:

I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ. Slit me at my belly and it might slide out, meaty and dark, drop on the floor so you could stomp on it. it’s the Day blood. Something’s wrong with it.

Page 56:

She was waiting for me to say more, to explain why I’d come to her now. To tell her, yeah, sure, Ben was innocent and I was going to fix all this.

Thoughts:

I’ve had this book on my shelf for a while. I’ve been meaning to start this one sooner because I wanted to finish it before the movie comes out. I’m about 100 pages into this one and it’s interesting so far.


What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? 

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice weekend.
