Teaser Tuesday: January 20th

Hello Tuesday!  It’s been quite the busy reading week!  I finished Little Black Lies by Sandra Block (from my teaser last week) and The Missing One by Lucy Atkins.  Both NetGalley reads, both 4 bones, both very good and worth your time, and both releasing in February 2015!


And I won a GoodReads contest of The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins which released just a few days ago.  The hard copy came super fast too, so why not dive in!?  Very excited about this one!  (And because this is a hard copy – I’m going back to turning to a random page – even I don’t know what is going on!!)

 “I need to get to the end of the story.  I need to tell someone, just once.  Say the words out loud.  If it doesn’t come out of me, it’ll eat me up.  The hole inside of me, the one they left, it’ll just get bigger and bigger until it consumes me.”
(Page 163)

Book Description:

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

Thanks for stopping by today – be sure to leave your teaser in the comments!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
