The Husband’s Secret

The Husband’s Secret

I was recommended this book by Amazon when I rated Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. So when I started reading The Husband’s Secret, I went in expecting something dark and twisty, and well, something a little more like Sharp Objects. But this book isn’t anything like that at all.

Teaser Tuesdays: The Husband’s Secret

For some reason (maybe the blurb at the back of the book, or the comparisons with Gone Girl), I read this book thinking it was going to be a thriller. Turns out that there are some thrills in it, but it’s more of a woman’s fiction kind of book – somewhere along the lines of The Escape Artist. I must be living under a rock or something, but it seems like there’s a new lighter, more emotional sort of thriller that’s getting popular these days.

Here’s a teaser, that I thought was quite true in general about long-married couples. What do you think?

I have never read any books by Diane Chamberlain before, so I wasn’t very sure what to expect from this book when I started on it. The blurb at the back of the book made it sound like a thriller, and since I am always a sucker for some chills and thrills, I expected to enjoy it very much.

Mailbox Monday – End of March

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued.

It’s been a long time since I did a Mailbox Monday post. I get my book deliveries both at home and office, and collating everything in one place and taking a photo seems to be an impossible task (and I know I have no logical reason for it). However, in the last couple weeks or so, books have been really tumbling into the house, and the only way I can keep track of what’s come in, and what I plan to read and review is through this Mailbox Monday post.

So, without further ado, here are the books I received starting from left to right.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, it’s all about underrated or hidden gems that we’ve read within the last year or so.

Some of these are pretty popular among book bloggers, but I am surprised how these books are not on the bestseller lists in India where I live.

The Strongman’s Daughter is Madhuri Iyer’s second book. I had read and liked the first one – Manhattan Mango, and based on that experience I decided to give this one a try.
