the day i went missing-Jennifer Miller

The Day I Went Missing follows our author Jennifer Miller into what I can only describe as a truly heartbreaking and terrifying situation she finds herself in when she becomes too trusting of her psychologist.  This is a genuine psychology thriller in the most literal sense and being that this is a true story makes it all the more disturbing.

This is a smaller book at only 246 pages but packs a huge punch.  Our author, Jennifer Miller, is a TV writer so this book is easy to fly through within a matter of a few days.

This book deserves a solid 4 out of 5 for this brilliant woman’s epic tale and to her recovery from such a disheartening experience.

Gone Baby Gone- Dennis Lehane

Let’s start off with a bang, shall we?

I should preface this entry by saying, if you aren’t a fan of colorful foul language, you should probably skip this book. While it is one of my favorite books, I realize it won’t be for everyone.

Gone Baby Gone is based out of  the hard Boston streets where private investigators (Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro) are hired by a missing child’s aunt and uncle to find her. Enter the shootouts and super sweet criminal nicknames such as Cheese and Bubba.

At 412 pages this book will keep you on the edge of your seat. Dennis Lehane has crafted many best sellers and this happens to be one of them.

I initially read this book around 2010 so, naturally, I’m unable to give you the exact time it took me to complete this bad boy but I know I flew through it.

I easily give this book 4 out of 5. I would probably rate it even higher if it didn’t make me lose an incy bit of faith in humanity, but alas, it has. Which also happens to be part of it’s charm, it is one gritty book.

Is this thing on?



There is nothing better than the smell of a book and nothing worse than wasting time reading a bad one… So let me help! My intention of this blog is to review books, plain and simple. Let me be a part of your book making decision and help you avoid the heartbreaking pain of time lost due to a less than average reading experience.

I will be reading somewhat popular books but will also be reviewing (hopefully) quite a few less known. I’m a fairly fast reader so I intend on posting at least every other week! Follow me to keep posted on what book to immediately borrow or buy and what to avoid!
