Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
This novel has been hailed "the it book of the summer" and by this point, you've probably read a half dozen reviews of it. I'm going to skip over the premise and jump right in; this book rocked. This book had me thinking FUCK YEAH GILLIAN FLYNN! This girl knows how to write a book. It's one of those novels that may keep you up past your bedtime as you tell yourself just one more chapter and then I'll put it down. I had so much fun reading it mostly because Flynn is really good at setting you up to believe one thing and then turning it around completely, leaving your head spinning. Not to mention I love a good unreliable narrator, and this book is chock full of 'em.
Honestly, I don't have any complaints. This one comes highly recommend from me and would be especially good if you've recently found yourself in a reading slump. Flynn has written two previous novels which I've heard are good, but most every who has read all three say Gone Girl is by far her best. Listen to the hype on this one - it will pay off.
