We Were Liars (Emily Lockhart)
Utterly heartbreaking, but hands down the best book of the summer (or even of the past few summers). I read it and then had to reread it straight away. Read it and cry. It's about a family.
Sharp Objects (Gillian Flynn)
In my opinion, it's no Gone Girl. A bit too brutal, not as clever, and then there's the typical Gillian Flynn disappointing ending, goddamn it. It's about a family.
The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra (Vaseem Khan)
Refreshingly different. It reminded me a bit of The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, but probably only because it has an elephant in it. It's about a family.
The Girl on the Train (Paula Hawkins)
Definitely worth a read. I felt like I related a bit too much to some of the characters (not Tom), which left me with an uneasy feeling that I can't quite explain (possibly to do with the fact that I can't remember the last time I travelled on a train without a G&T or two). It's about a girl on a train. And a family (or two).
