Before I Go To Sleep
No this isn't my beauty regime at night but a book I read this week which I enjoyed so much I had to tell you about it.
"Before I Go To Sleep" is a psychological thriller of the page-turning, can't put it down variety. It's the story of Christine, a woman who has no memory of her past so every day she wakes up she has no idea who she is, where she is and who the person sleeping next to her is (her husband). The story is seen through Christine's eyes and you feel her terror every day as her husband has to carefully explain her life to her - every single morning.
She begins to keep a journal of daily events as recommended by her doctor, who calls her every day to remind her where she keeps it (in the wardrobe hidden from her husband). She reads the previous days events and is always confused as she can never remember these things happening. As the book progresses and Christine fills in more of the journal you begin to realise something in her life is not right!
This book is so good I read it in two sittings and after looking at reviews on Amazon I see that lots of others did the same. A film is going to be made but I suggest you get in there first and read this book.
Available from all good book stores.
