First impressions before reading the book

I’ve been watching quite a lot of ‘BookTube’ recently, and I’ve heard this mentioned so many times, so when I was in my local Tesco browsing the two for £7 section and noticed this was in it, I decided to pick it up. I didn’t actually really know anything about the book except that it explores a relationship, and that the main character can’t leave the house.

I do love the film, therefore I went into this book knowing what happened, but I was still excited to read it.

First impressions before reading the book:

I bought this for my kindle on Amazon because it said if you liked Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train (both of which I’ve already read) you would enjoy this book. I read the description which says; But is Leah all she seems? Or does she deserve everything she gets?  Everyone has secrets. But some are deadly.” That sounded interesting to me so I decided to give it a go. I’d never heard of the author, or read any reviews on it, but it is rated 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
