The Girl from the Sea by Shalini Boland (2 Stars)

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Again, I wish publishers would please stop comparing everything written to Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.  This one really doesn’t live up to the hype, so pass it by.

It started out well enough, but soon wore thin.  It wasn’t chilling in the least, it wasn’t thrilling, and I really didn’t care about the main character, Mia.  She washes up on a beach, and has amnesia.  Wouldn’t you know it, she’s really rich so everyone wants to pretend they were her friend.  There’s something off about her reunion with her mother and sister, but there’s no suspense, just a little question bugging you, but you can figure it out on your own.  Mia develops a crush on some guy, and it’s like, hello, you don’t even know who you are and you’re mooning over some guy?  You have some bigger problems to contend with. Well, it turns out Mia drinks, a lot, and is not a very nice person.  This a story line and a plot that has a lot of potential, but it just didn’t meet my expectations.
