"The Friday 56" is also a weekly event, hosted by Freda's Voice, where you find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you from page 56 or 56% in your book/eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
So this week we are going to do a combined book because we are both currently reading Dark Places. I, personally, love Gillian Flynn and her twisted writing style. What about you? Have you read any of her books?
Libby Day was just seven years old when her evidence put her fifteen-year-old brother behind bars.
Since then, she had been drifting. But when she is contacted by a group who are convinced of Ben's innocence, Libby starts to ask questions she never dared to before. Was the voice she heard her brother's? Ben was a misfit in their small town, but was he capable of murder? Are there secrets to uncover at the family farm or is Libby deluding herself because she wants her brother back?
She begins to realise that everyone in her family had something to hide that day... especially Ben. Now, twenty-four years later, the truth is going to be even harder to find.
Who did massacre the Day family?
"I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ."
Oh, Libby Day is not someone I would want to meet in a dark alley.
"The whole psychiatric community, the police, law enforcement, the whole shebang--they thought everyone was a Devil worshiper back then. It was... trendy."
Until next time,
