Book Club - Before I Go To Sleep

Before I Go To Sleep by S. J. Watson

Summary:

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?

Review:

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!
