The Wednesday Book Recommendation

The Body Finder (The Body Finder, #1)The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. Apparently I am on a roll in 2011 and everything I pick up is fabulous!!!

I literally read this book in 4 days because I couldn't put it down. Just to give you some insight into my life: I work full time, have a toddler, and write in my free time, so 4 days to finish a book is pretty much UNHEARD of. Yes, it was THAT good.

Derting is amazing and has done a fabulous job of making these characters all seem very real and relatable, but in my opinion, the best thing she does in this book is balance out the totally creepy, heart pounding scenes, with sweet, heart melting ones.

I'll admit it kept me on the edge of my seat and a few times I was actually terrified of turning the page, torn between wanting to know what happens and at the very same time, terrified to find out!

The relationship between Jay and Violet is also so, so sweet, and feels very real.

All in all, just a really great read. I can't wait for the second book!

SO, what about you? DID you read it?  What are your thoughts? 


  1. I'm on a roll too with my book choices PAranormalcy, The Dark Divine, and Shade (I'm really in love with that one). I've loved everything I've read so far this year. I did read this and loved it. Jay is one of my literary crushes.

  2. I'm re-reading right now in preparation for the sequel. :D

    I love it so much, it's actually a comparison novel in my query.

  3. I've heard such great things about this book. Definitely going to bump it up my to-read list! Thanks for the rec!!

  4. Wow! That sounds like a fantastic read. I haven't read it, but it's on my list!

  5. I loved this book! And the sequel comes out next month! I can't wait for it. Jay was so cute! :)

  6. Awesome review... where do you find the time to read so much?

    thx for the post

  7. This is one I keep wanting to pick up, but haven't for some reason. I think your review just put me over the top! I HAVE TO READ IT.
