I just finished reading The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (also available in eBook and Audiobook format). This book was touted as the next Gone Girl, another addition to the dysfunctional female character thriller genre. While I didn't think it was the best book that I've ever read, it was certainly worth the long wait on the holds list.
Some people who've also read the book thought that the first bit of the book was a bit monotonous - I agree, as there was quite a bit of time spent with the main character's train rides. Once I got past the first few chapters, I found that the story "sped" up immensely, and I literally spent every second of my spare time reading it, until the book was finished. The story kept me guessing "who did it" until almost the very end.
