Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
I love a good series. It allows you to see the same characters grow over the course of several books. But sometimes all you really need is a standalone; something that's wrapped up and completed in one sitting. Let's face it, nobody really likes those dreaded cliff-hanger endings, and with a standalone, its guaranteed to be cliff-hanger free!
This week I've chosen an upcoming book by Jessica Sorensen: New Adult - Contemporary - Dark Thriller - the main character is a maybe murderer - It seems amazing!
The Forgotten Girl, by Jessica Sorensen
Expected Publication: March 27th 2014
Twenty-three year-old Maddie Asherford is haunted by a past she can’t remember. When she was fifteen years old, there was a tragic accident and she was left with amnesia.
In the aftermath, Maddie’s left struggling with who she is—the forgotten girl she was eight years ago or the Maddie she is now. Sometimes it even feels like she might be two different people completely—the good Maddie and the bad one.
Good Maddie goes to therapy, spends time with her family, and works on healing herself. Bad Maddie rebels and has dark thoughts of hurting people and sometimes even killing them.
Maddie manages to keep her twisted thoughts hidden for the most part. That is until she starts having blackouts. Each time she wakes up from one, she’s near a murder scene with no recollection of what happened the night before and this helpless feeling like she’s losing control of her life. Maddie doesn’t want to believe she’s a killer, but she begins to question who she really was in her past. If she was bad Maddie all along and that maybe she was a killer.
**Standalone. Dark Thriller**
