Lisa Gardner Books

Over the holidays I flew to Europe to see my mom and a few of my dearest friends. It was a good time, a little boring at times but good nonetheless. Though to entertain myself I didn't just play games on my phone with fellow friends/bloggers or watch endless hours of NCIS or whatnot, but I also read. The feel of a real book is just what I love and since I had to read something new I had never or a long time ago read before (style and author wise) my friend M. suggested to read two of her Lisa Gardner books. I wasn't disappointed even though I was skeptical.

Have you ever read any of her books? 

I hadn't so when my friend told me that especially the second one (the perfect husband) was an intense one I was a little worried. Don't get me wrong. I read a lot, and I read many genres so to speak. I don't only read chick-lit although yes that's the easiest and funniest (somehow). I also read classics, poems, thrillers, and whatnot. I like to keep myself entertained. Sometimes a book that has been read and loved by so many also appeals me, sometimes I just can't stand it. Tastes are different and that's good that way.  So, when I started "the neighbor" I somehow forgot to do my homework...that's how I could not put it down. I had to force myself to write an essay rather than figuring out what was going on in the book. I was never confused nor too shocked. Maybe because of the fact that I didn't expect much and also watch a ton of Criminal Minds and other police/FBI shows, maybe it's not. Who knows. 
I really enjoyed both books, and recommend them to whoever is interested in reading something else for a few days (or just one for that matter). I usually never read reviews because I want to form my own opinion, and that's why I didn't fully include one here either. If you click on the book covers you are redirected to the main page and can in fact read and decide whether or not these are a fit for you.

Personally, I'm probably going to get another one of her books because I just feel like I am not done with her style yet. It's like back when I was 15 and read most of John Grisham's books. Could not put them down, even cried once when the book finished (and that on a plane, people thought I was nuts!!). So, here's to reading something new, something different, and something that will entertain you maybe too.

Let me know if you have ever read her books, and what you thought of them (positive or negative), and if you have any other suggestions while we are at it. :)

I actually randomly downloaded her audiobook, Catch Me, to listen to on my drive home from school (about 8 hours). It was great, super intense, but dealt with child abuse so that was not so great. But I will definitely check out the books you read because they are great for a long drive!

The summer I discovered Jodie Picoult I could not stop reading her books. I devoured them like candy, it was insane.
