The Girl I Used to Be Reviews
In a culture where we snap pictures and videos of even the smallest and mundane parts of our lives, Mary Torjussen took that idea, that societal truth and gave it a creepy, sinister twist. Imagine yourself at a bad, maybe even indelicate moment, you want nothing more than to just forget it ever happened, and just when you start to relax someone taunts you with photographic evidence of your misdeeds. It makes me uneasy just to think about something like this happening to me and that’s basically t ...more
Imagine a crime of passion, violent, obtrusive, degrading in every way cast upon you unwillingly becoming a distant memory only to find those memories hidden in the recesses of your mind.
Would you at a young ripe age of 18 be able to stand up and courageously ID the perpetrator based on just a few limited details having been under some time of hazy fog administered to you?
This is the story of Gemma (Taylor) Brogan who had to try as she might to move on for the sake of herself and her family.
A thrilling novel that is full of twists and turns with dark secretive past that could destroy a future. A fast-paced read that is sure to stay with you.
I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.

Yet it seems she works more than she sees her son and she isn't too happy with that. When she goes to a meeting one weekend her life ends up spiraling out of control, the lies start adding up with her husband, she can't remember what happened tha ...more
I ADORED the last book I read by Mary Torjussen so I was really looking forward to picking up her new one and, as expected, I became completely gripped as soon as I started it. Mary Torjussen has a wonderfully engrossing writing style and once again I found myself unable to put this book down, reading it in one tension filled afternoon. She’s fast becoming a favourite author of mine, her books tick a lot of my boxes so to speak, and I know I’m in for a rompingly good read when I pick up her nove ...more
A wonderful, psychological thriller that will make you wonder what you would do if this happened to you!!!
I am a big fan of Mary Torjussen’s last book Gone Without a Trace. As a psychologist, I always find books that deal with the character’s mindset effectively to be so compelling, and this is an area Mary really excels in as an author. This book was one I read in two days (which, for someone who works full-time and has a dissertation to write is quite an endorsement). The steady building of su ...more
I loved her first story and didn't think she'd top that but I enjoyed this one even more. It was well worth the wait....I was very impatient for its release as I preordered it last April for a November release and then it got put back 6 months !! I was gutted !
I did get pretty irritated by Gemma, our victim, at times. A lot of her issues were down to her own actions. She had everything, really. She was one of these women who wanted a baby and then wanted her career as well, so hubby was a stay-a ...more
After reading Gone Without A Trace last year, when I saw Mary Torjussen's new book on NetGalley I had to hit the request button. I couldn't remember, at the time, what my rating for that book was, but I do remember liking her writing style and was excited when I received the email telling me I was approved for this title.
What Torjussen does well is hooking you right from the start. Immediately you're brought right into the story until you get to Part 2, where the twist comes into play. While it' ...more
