Sometimes I lie by Alice Feeney

Rating: DNF

Summary on Goodreads.

"Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?..." [+ More].

I knew when I read "Amber doesn't remember what happened to her" that this would be another case of the usual main character not remembering what happened, then remembering bits of it, and finally remembering everything at the end of the story. God! Why do authors keep writing this predictable plot?

This book was not for me. Amber is in the hospital and her life is told in three ways: past, a diary from when she was a child, and now- the present. I liked the present, but I was not interested in the past and definitely not the diary. I read another blogger say that the diary was the most interesting part, though.

This book was just boring for me. Period. The end.
