LITERARY DRIVEBY: THREE GREAT BOOKS THAT ARE MUST READS!!

Note:  Before I started this blog, I read three books that were absolutely fascinating and while I don't have the immediacy of a recent read to provide you with a full report on these books, I still want to be sure you know about them.  So without any further ado, you will love the books below:

1.  "Try Not to Breathe", By Holly Seddon

From Amazon, "Alex Dale is lost. Destructive habits have cost her a marriage and a journalism career. All she has left is her routine: a morning run until her body aches, then a few hours of forgettable work before the past grabs hold and drags her down. Every day is treading water, every night is drowning. Until Alex discovers Amy Stevenson. Amy Stevenson, who was just another girl from a nearby town until the day she was found unconscious after a merciless assault. Amy Stevenson, who has been in a coma for fifteen years, forgotten by the world. Amy Stevenson, who, unbeknownst to her doctors, remains locked inside her body, conscious but paralyzed, reliving the past." So will Alex Dale discover who the culprit is? Read it and find out!

2.  "The Silent Wife", By A.S.A. Harrison

From Amazon, "Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago...He is a committed cheater. She lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds. She likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps. She has nothing left to lose..." For divorcing women everywhere, settle in and enjoy this read! Oh, and heads up--don't read the summary of the book's plot on the Amazon website because it's a spoiler and you'll want to stay guessing!

Also very interesting backstory about the author:

3.  "The Widow", By Fiona Barton

Jean's husband, a suspected pedophile and child killer died last week. From Amazon, "There’s a lot Jean hasn’t said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment. Now there’s no reason to stay quiet. There are people who want to hear her story. They want to know what it was like living with that man. She can tell them that there were secrets. There always are in a marriage."

Was he innocent? Was he guilty? And how much did Jean know and when did she know it? Read the book and find out!!!!!
