Stay Awake by Megan Goldin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.
Finally, after years of struggle, Liv is living the life she longed for – a job at a glamorous magazine, an apartment in a beautiful brownstone, a devoted best friend, and a handsome boyfriend. Suddenly, strange things began to happen, she wakes up in random places she has no idea how she got to, with odd writings on her arms, but one stand out of it all – STAY AWAKE. It all begins to crash down at the same time – her best friend and boyfriend are out of reach, strange people living in her apartment, her favorite coffee shop is closed, and her job… is miles away, across the ocean. The last thing Liv remembers before waking up is answering her office phone, now she desperately needs to find out what accrued between the strange phone call and the moment she woke up.
Megan Goldin has blown my mind AGAIN. I’m afraid to give out the details, all you need to know is – the characters are well written, the plot is fantastic, and the pacing is on point. The four stars are for the ending – in my opinion, the perpetrator’s style was completely off when it came to Liv at the end and it threw me off the balance. Nevertheless, it was an addictive and thrilling read. If you’re a fan of bewildered thrillers – this book is for you. Thank you, NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press publisher for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
