Review of I Know You Know

I Know You Know
By: Gilly Macmillan

“You have to ask yourself: how much can one human being take before they break?”

So, this was a long read for me. It took me a few weeks to get through, but I want to qualify that statement and let you know that it wasn’t due to the quality of the writing. This was a tough subject to read. I mean, how often do you read about two little boys getting brutally murdered?... Right, so I had to make my way through this one with a little more ease than usual.

Hopefully, I haven’t scared you off, because Gilly Macmillan handled this story beautifully.

I Know You Know is a dual timeline story that investigates the murders of two little boys, Charlie and Scott. The investigation was closed twenty years ago, but Cody Swift, the surviving third best friend, doesn’t believe the right man has been put behind bars—and he’s back with a podcast to try and prove that. Meanwhile, in the other timeline, a body has been discovered that may be linked to the murders from twenty years ago.

Sharp Objects HBO Adaptation

Sharp Objects
Written by: Gillian Flynn
Adapted for HBO

I’m breaking away from my normal review post to talk (RAVE) about the book-to-screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects.

This is one of my favorite books—of all time. This one kept me up at night reading, and then also kept me up at night because it was SCARY. I would categorize the book as mystery/thriller/fiction, and the fact that the story had me truly afraid to close my eyes was incredible.

When I first saw Amy Adams had been cast as Camille Preaker I was skeptical. Adams, in my mind, still existed as the actress from Enchanted and Leap Year. HOLY SHIT I was SO wrong. Amy Adams became Camille Preaker—scars and all. She embodied every description Flynn wrote about Camille, and now I couldn’t imagine a single other actress playing the part. She was otherworldly.
