This month I devoured a fast-paced thriller that reminded me of We Need To Talk About Kevin, and a life-affirming novel that made me stop carrying around the weight of all my life's regrets.
The rest of the Mamamia team have been reading some fast-paced thrillers from some of Australia's best crime authors, a memoir from one of Hollywood's most intriguing stars, and a couple of Taylor Jenkins Reid's bestsellers.
Here are the nine books we couldn't put down this month:
"One of my favourite books of all time is We Need To Talk About Kevin. The Push is basically the female version of that. It's an intense thriller about a mum who doesn't bond with her newborn daughter and then begins to wonder whether there might be something not quite right about her. It ends with a killer twist that will haunt you for days after you've put the book down." - Keryn Donnelly, Pop Culture Editor
