Happy Easter! I try to save these blogger book club review posts for Sunday, and this Sunday it just happens to be Easter, too. Hope you are having a great day enjoying sunshine and family. I thought I would still pop in and share my review of our latest read, The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
This book is told from the perspective of Rachel, who happens to be “the girl on the train.” Rachel seems to have made a mess of her life after going through a rough divorce… she’s an alcoholic with seemingly no friends, and frankly not many redeeming qualities, but her voyeuristic passion and fantasy for people she doesn’t even know (combined with her passion for her ex-husband) lead her to be at the center of a murder investigation. I will say that I sort of had the murder figured out early on, but I still think it was an awesome and quick read. I read it in three days, and during that time, I grew to really like Rachel, and found her humorous and caring, despite her shortcomings. I would never want to be her roommate, but I found her intriguing. 😉 I would definitely recommend this book, and it would make a fabulous beach read!
For April, we’ve selected Bright Side by Kim Holden, which was recommended to me by a friend.
I have already started it, and I have to admit it started slowly for me, but I have since been sucked in. I will be back with my review of that in May!
