If you like books that cause you to stay up way past your bedtime, read these...

*What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

These are some great ones. I really liked Orphan Train. I think you'll love All The Light We Cannot See. I'm currently reading the eighth and final book in the Anne series (Rilla of Ingleside). And I had to return The Secret Keeper to the library before I was finished but have it on hold when next available - it's also by Kate Morton. Let me know what you think of The Lake House.

Such great picks for 2016! I haven't read a JoJo Moyes book yet, but I need to this year, along with the Orphan Train! I totally agree with you about staying up way too late to read Where'd You Go Bernadette and What Alice Forgot. I'm a huge fan of Liane Moriarty! Have you read any of her other books?
