Book Review – The Guest List

By Lucy Foley

If, like me, you like curling up on a winters day with a hot chocolate and a great, atmospheric whodunit then the Guest List is the book for you. It is written from multiple viewpoints (only 5 so it’s not a cast of thousands) but it isn’t at all confusing. The book is very like a modern take on Agatha Christie. It is set on Cormorant Island during the high profile wedding of Jules and Will – and then the lights go out. That’s all I’m going to tell you about the story because you really should read it and as we are moving into rainy, winter weather it is the perfect time of year to do so.

Book Review – Sometimes I Lie

By Alice Feeney

There are three things you should know about me:
1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.

The main character who narrates this story is Amber Reynolds who is in a coma.  It is a claustrophobic book in some ways as you are trapped with a character who can hear everyone who comes into her hospital room but can’t respond in any way.  You follow her through memories and dreams as she tries to recall all the events leading up to her being in a coma.  If you like twists, you will love this book.
