Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

An Anniversary to Remember

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is psychological thriller where a woman disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary.  As always, the husband is a suspect—until cleared.  So, did he do it? Did the husband somehow get rid of his wife?  The author keeps you guessing while she steers you through their strained relationship.  Amy’s diary with glimpses of their past alternate with Nick’s side of the story while the mystery unfolds and refolds into an origami puzzle. This book had me so involved, it was almost interactive, as if Gillian Flynn were behind the scenes pushing buttons that would make my blood boil, my teeth grind, my eyebrows twitch, and my head shake.  The twist and turns, the doubts and suspicions, kept me turning page after page.  It was hard to put down. 

This book will hit the big screen in October, 2014.  Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike play the main characters. Get ready for a wild ride.

Update: No surprise here, my book club voted to read this book and loved it!  It was an intriguing page-turner. Thumbs-up all around!

Happy Reading,

Fabulous New Little Free Library in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Little Free Library in Tree Stump in Coeur d’Alene, ID

Yesterday, my sister sent me a link to an article about a woman in Coeur d'Alene who turned a 100-year-old tree stump into a Little Free Library and I just had to see it for myself. The article stated that the tree was dying, rotting on the inside, so they had to have it removed. When some people have trees cut down they leave a large section to turn into wood sculptures. I love to see the works of art that are created from those stumps. 
But this stump takes the cake. Instead of a sculpture, owner and artist, Sharalee Armitage Howard, turned her tree stump into the most magnificent Little Free Library I’ve ever seen!  
The library was not yet listed on the map, so the search was on. Carefully viewing the video, I tried to narrow down where the house was located. Then I enlisted my husband’s help to search with me and we found it on the first street we turned down. It’s hard to miss.  This fabulous library is big.  It’s not just …

Little Free Libraries, Coeur d'Alene, ID Update

Take a Book, Leave a Book – Coeur d’Alene, ID Update Take a book, leave a book—that’s what the Little Free Libraries are all about—sharing books. It seems like these libraries are popping up like popcorn in Coeur d’Alene!  I just found four more. How exciting!  (Click here to see original post) 317 W. Mill Ave, Coeur d’Alene, ID.  This library is awesome and my photo doesn't do it justice.  It matches the beautiful house and the topper is that the house and library have matching whimsical pine cone rain chains hanging from them! The library has a nice selection of books, and there's a bench right next to it.  Here’s what steward, Kim, wrote about her library on the Little Free Library map locator:
Besides brushing my teeth, reading is the only thing I do every day. I have an extensive personal library and have always delighted in sharing books with others, so becoming an LFL Steward was the next right thing. My partner, Tom, and I bought and have been renovating the house in whi…
