I had heard many good things about the works of South African author Lauren Beukes. Reading one of them was on my very long list of ‘good things to do for myself’. It wasn’t until I read the plot of The Shining Girls that I finally bought one of Lauren’s works… Look at me calling her Lauren like we’re friends.
The Shining Girls has everything that makes me happy; Time travel, serial killer, fantastic hero and LOTS of ‘mind fuck’ stuff. I don’t know how to review books. All I will tell you is that you will LOVE this book if you are interested in the things I listed.
I love creative women. They make me feel like I am not alone in my madness. I like Lauren even more because she is a South African. I want to read this book again before the end of the year. It is beautiful.
