To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs.

Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella’s life – first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse – seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed… forever?

‘Bella?’ Edward’s soft voice came from behind me. I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running. He pulled me into his arms at once, and kissed me again. His kiss frightened me. There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips crushed mine – like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us. As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself…

November 29th 2012

With A Christmas Carol Charles Dickens created a modern fairy tale and shaped our ideas of Christmas. The tale of the solitary miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who is taught the true meaning of the season by a series of ghostly visitors and given a second chance, was conjured up by Dickens during one of his London night walks, who “wept and laughed” as he composed it. Taken to readers’ hearts for its humour, compassion and message of redemption, it remains its best-loved book.

THE RUNAWAY SUNDAY TIMES NO.1 BESTSELLER AND THRILLER OF THE YEAR

‘Really great suspense novel. Kept me up most of the night. The alcoholic narrator is dead perfect’ STEPHEN KING

Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She’s even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. ‘Jess and Jason’, she calls them. Their life – as she sees it – is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough.

Now everything’s changed. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she’s only watched from afar.

Now they’ll see; she’s much more than just the girl on the train…

People compare this book a lot with Gone Girl. Sure it’s an adult mystery/thriller in which a woman goes missing, but it’s way different!

This book is amazing! I kept holding my breath several times and I couldn’t put it down!

It’s an incredibly fast-paced and engrossing psychological thriller.

Rachel is lonely, drowning the sorrows of her failed marriage with grim determination and canned gin and tonics and endless bottles of wine. She lost her job because of her drunkenness, but rather than tell her flatmate, she keeps taking the train into London EVERY DAY, pretending to go to work, but actually she is just drinking over and over while fantasizing about the young couple she watches every day from her train window; a couple who live a few doors down from her old house, where her ex-husband Tom still resides with his new wife and baby.

Still reeling from Tom’s infidelity to her, she dreams of what could have been. In this couple she observes from the train, calling them “Jess and Jason,” she sees a perfect life, the one she could have had with Tom.

One day, while commuting, she witnesses “Jess” on her front lawn with another man, in what appears to be a romantic moment. Her life gets again upside down. She is outraged at this display, as personally offended as if the infidelity were being committed against herself. Shortly after this episode, she learns that “Jess,” actually named Megan, has disappeared, and feeling connected to this couple she has never actually met, she insinuates herself into the investigation, meeting with both the police and Megan’s husband, Scott.

This story is told from 3 perspectives:Rachel’s, Megan’s, and Anna (Tom’s new wife). And none of them is actually sane. It kinda seems Desperate Housewives.

This book is just full of secrets. Everyone has them. What happens on behind closed doors? How much can you ever really know/trust a person? What horrors exist in that black spot of your memory from Saturday night?

For the mystery of Megan’s disappearance itself, it has a lot of going back and forward. Full of twists. You start out about everyone. In some moment the character you thought you trusted, you doubt. This mystery keeps you in the dark long enough to let you come up with your own theories, which made it awesome.

It’s fantastic, and the mystery elements and the character development are amazing; great attention to detail and fully established backstories and motivations.

It’s terribly addictive, fascinating, gripping and oh so very creepy.

The Things I liked:

  •  I loved the perspectives of past and present mixed from the 3 point os view.
  • The mystery was terribly well done, you just can’t stop reading but you sure can stop breathing!
  • The fact that the characters are very difficult to like or dislike you just can’t feel the same about them all the time.
