Book Review: Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson

“We’re constantly changing facts, rewriting history to make things easier, to make them fit in with our preferred version of events,” – S.J. WatsonBefore I Go to Sleep.


29th – Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ (Good read, definitely!)

What is it about: As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I’m still a child, thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me…

Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love–all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story.

Welcome to Christine’s life.

What I Love: It kept me guessing until the end. It’s one engrossing read.

What I Don’t Love Much: There are parts that are a bit boring.

Wise Words: We’re constantly changing facts, rewriting history to make things easier, to make them fit in with our preferred version of events. We do it automatically. We invent memories. Without thinking. If we tell ourselves something happened often enough we start to believe it, and then we can actually remember it.

I have read over 50 books already! And I would like to share what I think about them with you! ❤

Doing so made me nostalgic because this is where A Reading Writer has started—a book blog. Before I discovered I can actually write. 😉

Please let me know your thoughts if you have read some of the books I’ll be reviewing soon.

Thank you! 🙂

  1. I love this premise! I remember a movie with this exact premise (where the girl would forget everything that happened to her the day before and basically repeated the same day over and over). It’s so intriguing.

  2. Oopsie…I just told my son a white lie tonight because I wanted him to feel safe. I sense that this storyline in many ways can be applied to all of us. I love the format of your review, and the quote, especially. I look forward to more….pretty, please. ❤

      1. I’m glad I’m not alone!

        For me, the movie was dull. I didn’t quite enjoy it and I ended up giving it a 2/5. I also happen to think that Nicole Kidman is a boring actress and she didn’t do much in the film.
