Reader of all kinds of books but favorites genres include mystery, sic-fi, romance, thrillers, YA, fantasy, general fiction, memoirs. I'll try anything once.
Luckily, I picked up this book from the "New" shelf at the library without knowing anything about it. Had I looked the reviews up, there's no way I would've been interested. I don't, generally, like books that are this dark. But having said that, I'm glad I picked it up at the library thinking it would be a straight forward mystery (which it wasn't).
Final verdict: It's good to take chances
