Bookish Bloggers Book Club: The Girl on the Train.

I joined the Bookish Bloggers Book Club a few months ago, a group based on Goodreads. We are now on book three for this year. In February, we read Big Little Lies by Lianne Moriarty {check out the discussion post hosted by Confessions of an Evil Stepmother}. In March, we read Where'd You Go Bernadette, A Novel by Maria Sample {check out the discussion post hosted by Sugar Crumbs}.

I'm hosting the April selection - The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. This book is a psychological thriller that has been at the top of my list, as I keep hearing how great of a read it is.

An introduction from Amazon {<--affiliate link}:

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.

I love to use my Kindle phone app on the L train on my way to and from work, so this sounds like the perfect read to make my travel time go by quickly. If you want to join in on this book club, I will post again during the last week of April with a discussion Q&A post.

Happy reading!
