Fashion Polaroids Book Club #5

Hey Guys! 

I have been getting so much better with my reading, since my last book club post I have read not one but 3 books! Granted two of them are re-reads (I have decided to go back and read all the Harry Potter books in stages) but still 3 books in a month, go me!!
This month’s book club book is not one of the Harry Potter books, I figured most of the world has read these at least once, it is the book Blood Wedding by Pierre Lemaitre. The book centres around Sophie, a woman in her 30s who thinks she is losing her mind and when she finds the little boy she child-minds dead she goes on the run. 
The book is written in parts, the first all about Sophie, the second is written from the perspective for Frantz and rather than chapters it is written like diary entries which I really liked. As the story goes on you discover that everything that has happened to Sophie is linked to Frantz, and the more you read the better it gets.

I have to say it did take me a little while to get into this book, I think this may just have been the way the first part was written, because it wasn’t like nothing happened, it had a lot going on. I don’t think it was till the section written like a diary that I really go into it, and then I couldn’t put it down. It was really interesting to see how everything was connected and I did actually begin to feel sorry for Sophie whereas before she just kind of annoyed me. 
I did enjoy this book, especially the more I read, but I will be honest, it isn’t the best on I’ve read recently. I can imagine this would make a pretty good movie though. I would recommend this book to anyone who really loved The Girl on the Train or similar books it has that kind of feel to it.
