Our Little Lies
Our Little Lies - Sue Watson

Marianne has what others would think of as the perfect life. Beautiful house on the best street in the neighbourhood, three bright children and a handsome and charismatic husband who also happens to be a successful surgeon. Marianne's past has been hard, but Simon makes sure she's looked after with flowers and trips. But he has just said another woman's name in conversation and Marianne knows that something's going on between them. As she starts to learn more about Caroline she doesn't find herself jealous, she finds herself afraid.

I was hooked from page one. The writing was great. The characters were frustrating and drove me up the wall at times but I needed to know what was going on! What are they hiding? What's the truth and what's a lie? I enjoyed this book from cover to cover but it really picks up at the halfway point. The suspense! I couldn't wait to finish it, it was so good. It had me guessing the whole time. I was not disappointed with this one.

Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for an e-copy.

#37 - Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson
Before I Go to Sleep - S.J. Watson

 Before I go to Sleep was one really interesting story. It is the story of a woman who wakes up everyday and forgets everything about her life. She doesn't know who she is or who her husband is and she has to start over every single day.

 

Not that original you would tell me, but this book was absolutely amazing. I really felt the anxiety at every single page, I wanted to know what was happening and what made her lost her memory like that.

 

The construction of the book makes you really confused and you really do not understand what is happening at all. You are totally lost all the time because you are remembering things at the same time as the main character and that was really well done.

 

You get this hughe climax at the end and I really liked it. I totally recommend this book ! I also know there was a movie made about it and I might consider watching it.

Gotta love the cowboys!
Rodeo Man - Margaret Watson

Rodeo Man is a fantastic contemporary romance by Margaret Watson.  Ms. Watson has provided us with a book that is well-written and loaded it with amazing characters.  This second chance romance brings Rebecca and Grady together after years apart.  Rebecca is part owner of an animal clinic.  Grady bought a ranch after being injured in the rodeo.  Their story has plenty of drama, humor, action, suspense and spice.  I enjoyed reading this book from the first page till the last and look forward to reading more from Margaret Watson.  Rodeo Man is book 1 of the Cameron Cowboys Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Double Helix
The Double Helix: A Personal Account of the Discovery of the Structure of DNA - James D. Watson

Gossip, backstabbing, petty squabbles, arrogance, snobbishness, and misogyny take a front row seat in this personal account of how the double helix structure of DNA was discovered. 

 

I expected more from Watson's book. 

 

And then there is the question about Rosalind Franklin's contribution to the discovery.

 

While Watson does spend some time in the epilogue to credit Franklin for her work on the subject, it seems too little, too late. He spends the entire book painting her as an uncooperative, dour, argumentative, bossy, frump with an "acid smile" in a career mostly reserved for unattractive women who have little chance of catching a husband. (He actually introduces her in the book in almost exactly those terms.)

 

Oh, and there is little explanation of the structure of DNA itself. It really is more of an account of his thoughts on girls, stomach pains, and on the personal lives of people Watson encountered when working on the project.
