Girl From The Tree House by Gudrun Frerichs is an extra ordinary thriller. I believe the author being a psychotherapist herself wrote this story in a great detail especially in the perspective of a person who is suffering from Dissociative Identity Disaster. I can’t imagine how much of a shock it is for anyone who realized how false her whole thirty years of life was.
I loved every single personality of Elizabeth. The multiple personalities inside Elizabeth call themselves ‘The Tribe’ and they each come to the rescue of Elizabeth on various occasions. Elizabeth’s fight for her sanity and freedom is incredible.
Girl From The Tree House is the most complex story I read in the recent times but don’t let the complex get you. I’m sure every single reader can relate themselves to at least one or two of the multiple personalities of Elizabeth. A well written and extremely insightful book. Definitely one of the best psychological thriller released this year.

Laguna by A’gata Green is a little different from regular psychological thrillers. I would say, it is more passionate thriller. Anastasia falls head over heels for Alejandro. There is love, passion and craze in their relationship, but there is a lack of commitment from Alejandro. Anastasia waits almost all her life for this but Alejandro keeps coming and going. Talking about the title of the book, Laguna is particularly a ssexual technique that very few men know. There are some scenes in the book the explain this technique in detail but I personally refuse to call this book erotic just because of this title. This book is so much more than erotic. The pain that the female goes through is well described by the author, the wait and the hopelessness made my heart clench.
Laguna is about a woman’s love, heartbreak and mending it.

Breaking the Rules by Emma Leigh Reed is a wonderful book. The female lead character, Isabelle seems very weak at the very beginning of the novel. The reader will be surprised to see the transformation of Isabelle by the end of it. She attempts a suicide and fails in it. She feels out of place while with her parents. When she falls in love with Jack, she finds happiness in his company but pushes him away thinking that she doesn’t deserve to be happy.
Isabelle finds a new job and moves to a different place after her heartbreak. She continues living in a shell afraid of causing herself yet, another heartbreak. The whole story changes when she meets Nick accidentally. Her walls start cracking around Nick and her fears kick in forcing her to push Nick away. Nick stands like a rock and helps her in fighting with her demons of past and fears about the future.
With the new found strength, Isabelle sets out to find out about her family secrets. The story is very engaging. I like how Isabelle finally forgives herself for her mistakes in the past and gives herself another chance at the future. The author did a great job. The story was very easy to read and in some parts, I could see myself in Isabelle. This is a very good read for young adults but I’m sure anyone would totally enjoy this book. I really hope the author is planning to write a sequel to this book sometime soon.
