We are not wizards or witches, but muggles. We don't live in a magical world... Hogwarts is not home. But don't let this put you down. We don't need magic to transform our world. We have thousands lives to explore and dystopian worlds to travels. From the words of JK Rowling, "The stories we love the best live in us forever".
It's a Muggle Monday Recommendation is a new weekly meme hosted by Once Upon a Twilight in hope that this story will cast a spell over you and live with you forever.
This week is dedicated to a book that has affected me in a way that no other book has. I've never had quite the same reading experience as I had when reading Gone Girl.
This book isn't one that I would normally pick up and decide to read, I usually stick to YA books, and this book is far from YA. What got me to pick it up and read was the teaser trailer for the movie. The fact that after seeing the teaser trailer in theaters and I wanted to be watching that movie was a shocker for me. And then I realized it was based off of a book, that night I bought Gone Girl on my kindle. It took me months to finally pick it up. When I finally did pick it up I couldn't put it down.
This book takes you on such a wild ride. I swear, every time I thought that I knew what was happening with the story line it would completely change directions. I had never had a book do this to me, and the fact that I was completely in love with it made it even better. Now, any chance I get I tell people to read Gone Girl.
Maybe not that aggressively...
