(baf·fle): to frustrate or confound; thwart by creating confusion or bewilderment.
I like a little bit of puzzle in a good book. Nobody wants to start a book and expect every single thing that gets thrown at them. That’s no fun! I want to be kept guessing until the very end when everything comes together and you’re wondering why you were so stupid that you couldn’t figure it out. I love that feeling! I think it important in every book because that’s why people read in the first place. We want to experience something different and in real life experiences we don’t know what’s going to happen.
Here’s some excellent books that baffled me:
- I am the Messenger
- What the Night Knows
- Exit Strategy
- 1st to Die
Some really great books here. I especially love Exit Strategy by Kelley Armstrong. It’s such a great book. Any other suggestions? I’d love to hear from you!
