Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson
Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson
This book has become one of the most notable psychological thrillers of recent years, joining an elite collection along with Gone Girl which has seen Hollywood producers scrambling for the rights to transform it into a movie. I though seemed to miss much of the hype for this when it was released and it has been languishing on my kindle for ages, however whilst looking on IMDB a week ago I found the trailer for the upcoming movie adaptation featuring Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth.

The Vintage Teacup Club by Vanessa Greene
The Vintage Teacup Club by Vanessa Greene
This book has been lingering on my kindle for a little while – however with a follow up book coming out later this year with lovely enticing cover art I decided it was time to get acquainted with the ladies of the vintage teacup club. Telling the story of three women who meet at a car boot sale whilst searching for vintage teacups.

This book follows each of the women’s stories both together and alone, Jenny as she plans her wedding to Dan and deals with an unexpected guest she hadn’t planned for, Maggie who’s ex husband has just reappeared looking to ignite romance and finally Alison who’s struggling to adjust to her husband Pete’s redundancy and two teenage daughters… Read more
