Hey guys,

These are some books that I have had on my shelf for a while and I have been wanting to read them for a long time. Since I only have exams to really think about I thought that I would be able to have a little bit of spare time to do some reading. 

Before I Go To Sleep - S.J. Watson

'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 person you trust may only be telling you half the story.
Welcome to Christine's life.'

The Slap - Christos Tsiolkas

'At a suburban barbecue one afternoon.
A man slaps an unruly boy.
Its a single act of violence.
But this event reverberates through the lives of everyone who witnesses it happen.'

Daughter - Jane Shemilt

'The night of the disappearance.
She used to tell me everything.
They have a picture. It'll help.
But it doesn't show the way her hair shines so brightly it looks like sheets of gold.
She smells very faintly of lemons.
She bites her nails.
She never cries.
She loves autumn, I wanted to tell them. She collects leaves, like a child does. She is just a child.
Find her.
One year later.
Naomi is still missing. Jenny is a mother on the brink of obsession. The Malcolm family is in pieces.
Is finding the truth about Naomi the only way to put them back together.
Or is the truth the thing that will finally tear them apart.'

The Boy That Never Was - Karen Perry

'Three year old Dillion vanished in the middle of the night.
His father Harry can't forgive himself for not protecting his only child. Yet Harry isn't blamed by his wife Robin; she bears her own secret guilt.

Five years later, thousands of miles away, Harry spots an eight-year-old boy in a crowd- a boy he is convinced is Dillion.

Desperate to find his missing son, Harry's obsession tears apart his marriage, exposing shameful secrets and shattering the one thing he and Robin had left - trust.

Why won't Robin believe Harry? What is she hiding? Can the boy really be Dillion? and how far will Harry go to find their lost son?
