Throwback Thursday – Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn


Throwback Thursday is a meme created by Renee at It’s Book Talk to share old favorite books rather than just the new shiny ones. This is a great idea to bring back to life some much-loved books. Please feel free to join in.

My choice for this week is: 

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

Published 2006 by Broadway Paperbacks


Goodreads Description:

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.


My Thoughts:

Since the miniseries of “Sharp Objects” just premiered this week, I thought this would be a good pick for my Throwback Thursday. I haven’t watched it yet but I have heard good things. I would really like to try and read the book again before watching but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to hold off.

I really enjoyed this novel and hope you did too! I’d love to hear what you thought of this book and/or the TV series.

Happy Reading!!

  1. Oh wow, I’ve been looking for a movie based on a book to fill one of the squares in my summer reading challenge bingo card. I haven’t read Sharp Objects (only read Gone Girl), so maybe I can do both the book and the movie! Happy watching!

    • Thanks, Jen!! I have it on my DVR too 🙂 I still haven’t decided whether to read the book and hold off on the series or to just watch it. For now I’m holding back but once there is a few episodes out I will probably cave in. I hope you love it!!

  2. Haven’t seen the series yet, but I want to watch it. I listened to the audiobook and loved it!! I saw them interview Amy Adams on The View. She brought a fart machine to the set of Sharp Objects to help lighten the mood of such an intense show. Haha!
