Review: Gone, Girl and Dying to Get Published

Gone GirlGone Girl by Gillian Flynn

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

To be honest, I got through the first 60 pages and wanted to quit. I had heard really great things about this book and was disappointed, but still curious about what went down. I skipped to the last “act” and from what I read totally understood what went down.

Dying to Get Published (Jennifer Marsh Mysteries, #1)Dying to Get Published by Judy Fitzwater

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Okay, I wanted to like this book. It sounded funny, witty and like a great quick read. It started off with the main character upset because an agent refused to sign her, being particularly nasty about it. The MC returned the nastiness, okay cool, let’s move on with our day. Right? Nope. The MC concocts the plan to write a murder mystery but actually goes through the steps of plotting the murder by writing the agent threatening letters, setting up abilities, etc. This should have been such a good story! But I just couldn’t get in to it. Instead of rooting for the MC, I wanted her to get caught with every turn of the page.
