Sharp Objects {book review}

 Trigger Warning
This book has triggers for cutting which can also lead to triggers for other self harm.

 Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

I normally would have never picked up this book.  But it was the pick for a book club I'm in.  I usually stick to fantasy and romance books.  Not psychological thrillers.  I didn't want to pay money for a book I wasn't sure I'd like at all.  So I found an audio version for free on YouTube.  Now, you know how I feel about narrators with audio books.  The narrator was Ann Marie Lee, and she did a fabulous job!  
I'm so glad I gave this book a shot!  It was amazing!  I loved the details in the story and the investigation!  And I totally called the ending!!!  When I get a chance, I'm going to pick up a used copy of the book to have in my personal library.  I also plan on picking up other books by Gillian Flynn. 

I gave this book a 5/5 bookworms.
