Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

Ages 18+sleep

This book reminds me of the movies 50 First Dates with Drew Barrymore and The Vow with Rachel McAdams because all three stories are about women who lose their memories and have to be told what their life is like every day when they wake up by those who love them. I loved this book because there’s that mystery component that leaves you wondering if the main character, Christine, will ever get her memory back, or if she’ll have to be reminded every day for the rest of her life. There is also a movie adaptation of this book by the same name with Nicole Kidman.

In A Dark Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

Ages 18+
dark wood
Nora wakes up in a hospital bed and is confused as to how she ended up there, and why she is so badly bruised. Then it starts coming back to her: she was invited to her friend Clare’s hen party (what the British call a bachelorette party). The thing is, she hasn’t seen Clare in ten years, and wonders why she was even invited. The book gets even more suspenseful when Nora finds out that Clare’s fiance is murdered and she’s a suspect. This book was hard to put down!
