WICKED above her hipbone, GIRL across her heart Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker’s troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, Camille’s first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.NASTY on her kneecap, BABYDOLL on her legSince she left town eight years ago, 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 again in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille is haunted by the childhood tragedy she has spent her whole life trying to cut from her memory.HARMFUL on her wrist, WHORE on her ankleAs Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends, forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons, Camille will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming.With its taut, crafted writing, Sharp Objects is addictive, haunting, and unforgettable.

Totally messed up and a little predictable, but thoroughly difficult to put down.

I´m going to grant Gillian Flynn one thing: she writes compelling stories and I finished this book within two days. But oh boy, this book is disgusting. It´s like Flynn tried to put everything that can be remotely offending to people in one book (and this comes from a person, who is not easily offen...

Around the Year Reading Challenge Item #4: A book by an author you discovered in 2015 I can't say I exactly "discovered" Gillian Flynn last year, as, due to the blockbuster status of Gone Girl, she's been on my radar most of the time I've worked in libraries.
