Book Review Wednesday: Pieces of Her

No comments
Karin Slaughter has been one of my favorite authors for a few years now, ever since I read "Pretty Girls". That book really messed with my head and remains one of the most twisted books I ever read.

Last year I read 'The Good Daughter" and it further proved that Karin Slaughter's mind is a scary place, in the best way possible.

When I heard she was coming out with another book, "Pieces of Her", I knew it was going to be a good one and I was so excited.

This was one of the first audiobooks I listened to after taking a massive few month breaks and it sucked me right back in.



"Pieces of Her" follows the story of Andrea and her mother, Laura. Andrea thinks she knows her mother but when they are both involved in a mass shooting, everything changes in an instant. In that one moment, Andrea's perception of her mother is forever altered.

Laura and the secrets she has harbored for decades are revealed and nothing will ever be the same.

We are taken through the journey of Andrea finding out the truth about her mother and learning more about why Laura did the things she did.

The book was a little confusing to follow at first because of the constant back and forth, and I will admit that hearing the flashbacks were a bit boring at times but once you realize what's happening and the story that is involved, it's mind-blowing.

'Pieces of Her' was not as gruesome or disturbing as Slaughter's other books but it was very interesting to see unfold. This wasn't really a domestic thriller novel like the other books but it was really about the relationship between mother and daughter and how a person's history will always come back to haunt them. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I was always looking forward to the next chapter to find out what really went down. The twists and turns were not scarce and were jaw-dropping at moments.

This was definitely one of my favorite books I've read this year and I highly recommend it!
