The Girl with no Past by Kathryn Croft
This is the first ever psychological thriller I’ve ever read and oh, has it got me hooked on them!! Leah Mills who leads a frankly very dull & boring life, working in a library all in order to forget her past. But when the anniversary of a day Leah can never forget rolls around again she keeps receiving strange and unwelcome reminders of her past. At this time her life has finally started to return to normal but these reminders tested the limits of how normal her life could become. I began this book with a very open mind looking forward to seeing what twists Croft had in store for the group of characters she had created and, I don’t want to give to much away but assure you it did not disappoint. I could not put this book down, I began it on my last day of holiday and I found myself reading on the coach to the airport, in the airport and on the flight home, which is a true sign to me that I’ve really enjoyed a book.

РThe Book of You by Claire Kendal 
Clarissa who was being followed by her colleague who she had, in the past, gone on a date with and since that day he has been unable to leave her alone. When Clarissa is selected for jury service for a seven week trial she is relieved but this still doesn’t stop her being followed. I found this story truly terrifying in terms of how realistic the struggles that Clarissa dealt with are, although it’s not a novel I would recommend. I found myself becoming quite bored roughly a quarter into the story and I really had to force myself to finish it. Until the very end I found there weren’t many twists or turns or any points I felt I really wanted to read on to find out what happened. Even the ending I found to be left quite open, in fact it was the only time during the book I was interested to know what happened next but unfortunately it I was left wondering

Have you read either of these books?

  1. Both of these books sound really interesting, I’m really getting into books and wanting to find some that are a little different to the fault in our stars etc! Lovely post. Paige x
