What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty


Apr 24,20 15

Read in April, 2015

Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child.

So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over — she’s getting divorced, she has three kids and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes.

Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over.

My Review;

I enjoyed this book. As I was reading it , I put myself into Alice's shoes and wondered how I would feel if I didn't remember the last 10 years of my life. What a scary feeling. I like how the story unraveled and how Alice found out about all the events in her life that occured before the accident. She was in for a shock. All in all, I like how the book ended.

This was a new author to me book. I plan on contuing to read books by her.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins


Apr 03, 2015  

Read in April, 2015

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

A compulsively readable, emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller that draws comparisons to Gone Girl, The Silent Wife, or Before I Go to Sleep, this is an electrifying debut embraced by readers across markets and categories.

My Review::

I absolutely loved this book. It was very hard to put it down. I was so engrossed with trying to solve the crime. Any character could have committed it. I was definitely surprised with the ending!!
