Waiting on Wednesday (13)


Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme highlights some of the books whose releases bloggers are most anticipating this year.

This week I’m hotly anticipating…

Then You Were Gone

Then You Were Gone by Lauren Strasnick

Expected Publication: January 8th 2013 by Simon Pulse


Two years ago, Adrienne’s best friend walked out of her life. One week ago, she left Adrienne a desperate, muffled voicemail. Adrienne never called back.

Now Dakota is missing. She left behind a string of broken hearts, a flurry of rumours, and a suicide note.

Adrienne can’t stop obsessing over what might have happened if she’d answered Dakota’s call.

And she’s increasingly convinced that Dakota must still be alive.

Maybe finding and saving Dakota is the only way Adrienne can save herself.

Or maybe it’s too late for them both.

I was drawn in when this was compared to Thirteen Reasons Why which I absolutely adored, so I hope this one will turn out to just as heart-wrenching!

What are you waiting for?

  1. Gosh I have to admit that this one sounds terrifying. I’ve been reading so many raw and gritty contemporaries lately, so I know this will fall into that category, but the tone of the synopsis itself has an undercurrent of fear to it which frightens me. Still, this sounds incredibly original, so I’ll probably add it to my shelves after I see what you have to say about it! Wonderful pick this week, Livvy! 🙂

      It really does.
      When reading it I was like, damn, I need to get my hands on this book soon it sounds so interesting and whilst I don’t do contemporaries that much, certain ones like this do capture my attention and the relation to Thirteen Reasons Why gripped me more. 🙂

  2. This sounds very gripping! I quite enjoyed Thirteen Reasons Why, so I’m glad for that comparison. And it doesn’t hurt that the cover is cool. 😉
