Recently I've read a couple of books that were really good, and I'd like to recommend them to anyone who enjoys a nice piece of fiction. The first book is Secret Daughter, by Shilpi Somaya Gowda, a Canadian-born author!
This is the story of two different families; an American family who adopts a girl from an Indian orphanage, and the Indian family who gave her away. I loved it because it gave me insight into the Indian culture, something I've never read about before.
The second book is called Before I Go To Sleep, by S J Watson.
This story centres around a woman who has lost her memory and can only retain memories until she goes to sleep for the night. Every morning she wakes up, and has to start all over again. Once she starts keeping a daily journal, she starts to be able to put pieces of her past together. It takes you on a fantastic journey of discovery right along with her, and keeps you turning the pages to keep revealing the secrets of her past.
I would have loved to have posted pictures of the covers of the books, but I couldn't really figure out how to copy and paste pictures using my iPad. But click on the links and have a look for yourself. They're great reads!
