Book 32: Jane Anonymous

One of my goals for 2020 is to read more. What better way than to commit to reading one book a week? 52 books in 52 weeks and I’ll be sharing every single one on the blog, every Sunday. Check in for my latest reads and recommendations.

I recently read somewhere that if you find yourself in a reading rut, jumping to YA fiction might just be the answer. I really enjoyed “Jane Anonymous” because I’m a little messed up and true crime obsessed. I’ll be honest, I don’t think this books is for everyone.

“Jane Anonymous” tells the story of a girl who’s come home after being kidnapped and essentially held captive. It’s interesting as the reader because you know that the narrator and main character don’t quite have the full story, so neither do you! I liked how the plot is pieces together slowly, however, I found some of the scenes cliche and the ending was a bit underwhelming.

For entertainment purposes, the book was good. Kind of like an episode of Law and Order SVU- you can’t look away, you wonder why you’re so engaged, but you don’t really get much from it when it’s over. A beach read on a vacation, maybe, if you can stomach true crime!

Wirth Rating: 3/5
