The Shining Girls: A Novel - Lauren Beukes

the (maybe) reading funk strikes again? perhaps. because this one has become a chore. the string of brutally (and graphically) attacked dead girls is getting old. quickly.

 

to be fair, i don't think it's completely The Shining Girls' fault. i've just reached my limit of our cultural pre-occupation with dead women. i've recently seen too many movies and watched too many tv shows with dead women as a central character or plot device. i need to mix things up, i.e. i need to add a different book to my reading rotation. maybe, i'll start enjoying this more, if i do.
