Gina Clayton I drive a lot so I'm listening to The Girl on a Train. So far I'm enjoying it. Love the British accents.

Hey- smile! Goodreads was just trying to help out. You don't have to read any of them and there are plenty of other books out there that may strike your fancy! Have a great day!

Keiry Ko A Study in Scarlet Women seems interesting.


message 6: by Phil (new)

Phil Hopkins Yes, The girl on the train is a good page-turner - I haven't tried the audio book though. Good tip, thanks


Books and the Bronx Gurrrrlll Just started Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood. Good so far.


message 8: by Theja (new)

Theja The girl on the train was gripping and a page turner. The blurb on the dust cover tempted me to read the book.

I have a long commute as well and I just started this audio book on Monday. I'm really liking the narration; it adds to the suspense.


message 10: by Fahad (new)

Fahad Nasir The Girl on the Train was suspenseful and alluring but Gone Girl beats it by a mile, in my opinion. It's darkly twisted and God, gotta love Amy!
I'm starting Matilda, by the way!


message 11: by Atlanta (new)

Atlanta Bushnell I'm so excited for Gemina! I'm waiting for my copy to arrive in the mail. Illuminae was such an exciting and unique read, I can't wait to see what they do with Gemina.

I have yet to read The Girl on the Train, but plan to order it from book depository soon. However, I just finished Gone Girl yesterday. And oh my god, ridiculously twisted. Amy is truly Amazing...take with that what you will. ;)
