My problem is that I love a thriller - a fast-paced, full-of-suspense story that is always one up ahead of me - but most have one-dimensional characters, sloppy dialogue and move so fast that I don't get emotionally caught up. I loved 'Sister' by Rosamund Upton because it had suspense, was beautifully written and I was hooked by the story, the themes and the prose. I didn't feel like I'd wasted my time and brain cells reading it. Also, Room by Emma Donoghue was a big favourite. Another book I've read this year like that is 'Seven Days to Tell You' by Ruby Soames. It's about a woman who wakes up one morning with her husband in bed with her - after he's been missing for three years. He asks for a week to tell his story and hopes for her forgiveness. Now he's ready to tell her his secrets, is he prepared to hear hers? Is a week long enough to face the truth? I couldn't put this down, I was moved emotionally but also had to find out where this man had been and what was his wife going to do when she found out! If anyone can recommend books like these, I'd love to know as I'm packing my bags soon for a long summer holiday and I get very bored on a beach!Seven Days to Tell You
