Book Club - Before I Go To Sleep

Before I Go To Sleep by S. J. Watson


Every day Christine wakes up not knowing where she is. Her memories disappear every time she falls asleep. Her husband, Ben, is a stranger to her, and he's obligated to explain their life together on a daily basis - all the result of a mysterious accident that made Christine an amnesiac. With the encouragement of her her doctor, Christine starts a journal to help jog her memory every day. One morning, she opens it and sees that she's written three unexpected and terrifying words: "Don't trust Ben." Suddenly everything her husband has told her falls under suspicion. What kind of accident caused her condition? Who can she trust? Why is Ben lying to her?


This was not my typical type of book. But I read online that it was great. It was AWESOME. So full of suspense, on the edge of your seat read. I stayed up past my bedtime way too many nights to read more. And I suspected the ending, but it still shocked me.

I highly recommend, but it is one that you have to pay attention to. There were a few times that I had to flip back a few pages to remember things. But overall, a fantastic book. If possible, I would love to see it as a movie!

This sounds really good! I actually had it written down that I wanted to read it but had forgotten what it was about. How creepy!

Love the pictures of Abby. Such a cutie! They are growing up way too fast!

This sounds like a more sinister 50 First Dates (I love that movie!). Adding this to my to-read list!

It's funny that you say you want to see it as a movie because for the first half of the description I was like "Oh, that sounds like 50 First Dates."

Until the "Don't Trust Ben" part. That is a little different.

Sounds really good!
