I’m having a bit of a #griplit moment. Storming through Paula Hawkins’ Girl on the Train, Maestra by L.S. Hilton, Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner, Behind Closed Doors by BA Paris and Disclaimer by Renee Knight.
With books like this I can’t seem to pause when reading, I just have to know exactly what happened and who did it. My life gets put on hold as I turn pages faster than any other reading. I stay up way too late then get scared when I do finally go to bed because I’m in the suspense mindset.
I find myself mistrustful of all my friends and family if I see them too quickly after putting the book down. Then I get so involved that I start skimming (very bad!) and then have to go back because I’ve missed crucial plot points. I am a very impatient #griplit reader!
In contrast I’ve also just finished Jilly Cooper’s The Common Years which I loved so much that I stopped reading it three quarters of the way through because I didn’t want it to end.
Funny isn’t it? What different genres can do.
Now I need a new book, though, because I read all the psychological suspense so quickly. Any suggestions?
