Sarah Broadhurst's view...
A stylish, gripping and surprising thriller, which is now a film starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth. Christine suffers from a strange amnesia which means that each day starts afresh with no memories of the one before. Cared for by her husband and overseen by her doctor, it soon becomes clear that all isn’t necessarily as it should be. One of the most exciting and satisfying reads of the decade, taut and sinister this will have you staying up all night to finish it.
The film version of Before I Go to Sleep was released in UK cinemas on Friday 5 September 2014. Click below to view the trailer.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
