Good morning! It’s Day Nine of the Ten Day Book Challenge. I’m having so much fun participating and I have author Rami Ungar to thank for tagging me.
Here is how the challenge works:
- Thank whoever nominated you with big, bold print. If they have a blog, link to the post where you got tagged there.
- Explain the rules.
- Post the cover of a book that was influential on you or that you love dearly.
- Explain why.
- Tag someone else to do the challenge, and let them know they’ve been tagged.
As this challenge has progressed, it’s become increasingly difficult to choose books. Only ten books? I have so many books I love, I could post a different book every day for a year or more! But, alas. There is only room for ten books. Why Gone Girl? Because I thought it was absolutely brilliant. It really did keep me guessing. And I found myself rooting for wicked, unreliable, sneaky characters who, let’s face it, weren’t likable in the least. The ending kind of pissed me off at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I believed it fit somehow. I would love to be able to write a book just like it, but I could never pull it off. And, so, this book has earned it’s spot on my list. I’d like to reread it one of these days.
Don’t wait to be tagged! Go ahead and participate if you’d like. Leave me a comment with a link to your post so I can stop by for a visit!
One thought on “Ten Day Book Challenge: Day Nine”
This book was partly the inspiration for my article on unlikable protagonists. And I agree, it is brilliant, though at times I do wish the ending had gone differently.
