Behind Her Eyes
|I finished reading this book at 2AM and was glad I decided to finish reading it downstairs away from my sleeping husband because I pretty much shouted
I came across this book after reading an article titled something like, “The 12 Books You Must Read if You Liked Gone Girl.” After seeing I had already read most of the books on the list, I saw this one and was intrigued. Now, I am honestly done with every book and their mom comparing themselves to Gone Girl. “The next Gone Girl.” “For fans of Gone Girl.” Etc. The thing is I can’t seem to stay away from all these psychological thrillers deemed the next Gone Girl.
After reading the reviews and seeing that the book had been marketed with the hashtag #wtfthatending, I had to get my hands on it. I immediately was HOOKED and couldn’t wait to read that #wtfending.
When I first started doing reviews for Goodreads, one book will always stick in my mind and that is Unravel by Calia Read. Up until reading Behind Her Eyes, I have not read any books that shocked me as much as this one did. I can safely say I DIDN’T SEE that ending coming. For me, I can usually tell what will happen early on. My reads so far in 2017 have all been pretty predictable and lackluster so I was extremely grateful for this read.
It is VERY hard to review this book without giving away spoilers Read the synopsis on the top of this page. For those wanting a little more of a summary, I will say this book had me thinking Donnie Darko, Inception, Unravel, Houdini Heart and Behind Closed Doors. It was seriously a brilliant mashup of all of those. Going on my favorites!
