Various musings on the books that I've read....

Are You Lonesome Tonight

Are You Lonesome Tonight - Lucy De Barbin, Dary Matera I read this a few years ago, and found it interesting. Not sure whether to believe her or not, because there are a lot of crazy people out there who like to make up stories about themselves and Elvis Presley for money and attention.

Criminal (Will Trent #6)

Criminal (Will Trent #6) - Karin Slaughter This is the first book I have ever read by Karin Slaughter.

It was rather tough at times to stick with the story because, the plot constantly jumped from the 1970s to the present day, along with a ton of characters that seemed to pop up all over the place...this made the story rather confusing sometimes.

I was hoping for a twist at the end, but unfortunately that didn't happen. It was an average story, and not a bad read but it is not the best crime novel that I have read either. I also found it hard to sympathise with the main character "Will", in this story for some reason.

Anyway, I assume Slaughter's other books are better?

The Collector

The Collector - John Fowles A haunting and disturbing book that resonated with me, long after I had put it down.

Child Bride

Child Bride - Suzanne Finstad I read this a very long time ago, when I was about 18 or 19. (Yeah it wa THAT long ago lol) It was interesting, although it is hard to decipher what is the truth and what isn't.
