New Books:

I’ve just finished a Psycho thriller, Then she was Gone by Lisa Jewel and found it quite compelling and suspenseful. I always say that I don’t like that genre but once I get started, I can’t put it down. This was a gripping novel about a young girl who disappeared on her way to … the library, every mother’s fear.  Laurel Mack spends years grieving and searching for her missing daughter. When she finally begins to live her life with some normalcy again, her life starts to intertwine with that of a young girl named Poppy who has striking similarities to her daughter Ellie. What unfolds after this is the beginning of this strange and unlikely thriller. Giving you a clue as to the ending would definitely be a spoiler. The other book I am reading now is, If She Walks by Michael Koryta. He has always been a favourite of mine but he truly does have a dark side in some of his writing. This novel revolves around a young university student entrusted to drive an eminent Professor to speak at a conference at an elite American college. On their way there, there is an accident; she ends up in a coma and the Professor is dead. As the title suggests, what will we learn if and when she wakes up?
