    • I was attracted to the cover of The Velvet Hours too — it is beautiful! The I am human bot wasn’t showing up and therefore not allowing people to comment so I deleted it. Thank you for the comment!

    • I was very hesitant about The Grownups at first, but found it easy to become absorbed in. It would be a great short story to read over the fall season.

  1. I have had The Luckiest Girl Alive on my bookshelf for awhile and have not yet got around to reading it. I would be interested to know your thoughts.

    Thanks for sharing Alyson Richman’s latest I read The Lost Wife a few years ago now, but still remember it was a very harrowing storyline.

    Have a lovely reading week!

    • I thought Luckiest Girl Alive was good but it could have been better. It is still worth the read but, I think it just missed the mark. I have my reviews set to go up in October.

    • They were both very interesting books and are great Fall reads. I hope you get the chance to enjoy Luckiest Girl Alive. Thank you for visiting Laurel.

  2. Did you enjoy “The Grownup”? I read that not too long ago and quite liked it–but it was only my 2nd Gillian Flynn experience (I tried listening to “Gone Girl” and didn’t like it, so I can’t really compare it to her other work.

  3. I thought The Grownups was a good thriller especially for being a short story. I was on the Gone Girl bandwagon when it first came out but upon reflection don’t think it deserved the hype. If you want to try another book by Gillian Flynn I recommend Dark Places. It is a little In Cold Bloodesque and much darker than her other books although it is great psychological read. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

    • I’m about 100 pages into The Velvet Hours and so far so good. It definately has promise. Also, thank you again for letting me know about my comment issue.
