With Harry Potter, the books progress with maturity and complexity as his character ages. If you can zip through the first two, the third is really the start where I really got into the series. I wish the author would write some more books.

I just finished reading Before I go to sleep by S.J.Watson. It took me about 5 hours to finish reading, I just couldn't put it down.

Here is a summary of it.

"As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I’m still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me. . . ."


Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love—all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may be telling you only half the story.


Welcome to Christine's life.

My two recent page-turners were both books that I initially resisted as I didn't think they were "my kind of book":

Unbroken
by Laura Hillenbrand - an amazing true story of a pilot turned POW in WWII. I turned up my nose at it because I don't know anything about planes, don't like war books and... not sure why else. I read it non-stop and loved it.

The Hunger Games - again, I initially rejected these books (actually, I just finished the first one this weekend) because someone said they were the new Twilight and that was a complete turn-off. I thumbed the first three pages and was totally hooked.
