My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! A mind-bending, heart-stopping thriller told in a cinematic style, Stay Awake will make you forget everything until you’ve reached its gasp-worthy conclusion. Ingenious, intriguing and intoxicating, this stylish thriller is a fresh take of an amnesiac’s experience, expertly pulling you in as she pieces together her fractured memories of what happened to the dead man she woke up next to. Utterly unforgettable!

When Liv wakes in a cab, she doesn’t have anything. Not her keys, not her phone, not her coat. Only a bloody knife, which she quickly hides. In the vein of Memento with hints of Before I Go To Sleep, the story follows Liv as she finds herself on the run for a crime she doesn’t remember committing. To make matters worse, every time she falls asleep, her memory resets and her mind goes back to two years before. But what happened two years before? And is someone out to make sure she doesn’t remember, permanently?

One of the most dazzling, clever books I’ve read in a long time!
