Book 2: Before I Go to Sleep

My second book of the year is Before I Go to Sleep, by SJ Watson.  Its a bit different then my usual kinds of books, which I would classify as fiction.  This book was more of a thriller then what I normally read.  I did really enjoy it, but it kept me up very late the night I got to the climax of the book.  I just couldn't read it fast enough to figure out what was going to happen. 

The easiest way to explain the book to people is, to say it's like 50 first dates, but a thriller.  Each morning the main character Christine wakes up in a strange bed with a strange man (at least to her) and her husband has to explain her life to her.  Then she starts to write a journal to record everything she learns about herself each day and what she finds out is very interesting. 

If you are a reader I would certainly recommend the book, especially if you like thrillers.  It wasn't the best book I've ever read, but that could be because it's not my usual genre. I got through it quite quickly as it was very exciting.

Onto #3... which I'm not sure what it will be yet.... there was a free itunes book with the 12 days of Christmas, it might be that... or if a good hold from the library comes..  I'll leave you in suspense.
