Stay Awake: A Novel | Megan Goldin

This is the latest from a suspense author that I really enjoy. What if every time you fall asleep you lose your memory of the last two years of your life? And what if you committed murder during one of those “blackouts”… or not. This was an interesting premise for a plot, and Goldin does a great job of keeping what could have been a convoluted timeline in good order. We learn a little bit more each time we glimpse our heroine‘s life from two 🔻

robinb years past. That said, as a reader, I do admit I did get tired of rehashing the empty spaces after each sleep (others helped her along the way). And may I say, she faced her vulnerability with a lot less terror than I would have. Yikes! The big question of who she could trust kept me invested so I valiantly curbed my impatience for the endgame. Nicely done…just be steadfast and above all, don‘t fall asleep…I couldn‘t resist. 😂 4/5⭐️ 2d

🎧 A very compelling story. I stayed up late & listened straight through.

Liv & Amy are best friends & roommates. Liv is dating Marco & Amy is dating Bret.

The story begins with Liv waking up in a cab having no idea how she got there. The last thing she remembers is taking a call at work on a summer day, it‘s now late fall over 2 years later & there‘s a bloody knife in her pocket.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 👇🏻👇🏻

Twainy As Liv starts to piece together the past 2 years of her life the narrative starts to skip around in time so you can get the full story & the characters are fleshed out because Liv loses those 2 years every time she falls asleep.

Twainy The chapters consist of 2 timelines aiming to merge. We are introduced to a few more characters including the police officers tasked with solving a murder that occurred shortly before Liv woke up in the cab, with the knife.

Fun entertaining thriller. Good narration. Highly recommend if you enjoy your thrillers, thrilling.

Liv Reese doesn't remember anything. What did she do last night? Why does she remember nothing from the past two years? Liv finds herself on the run for a crime she doesn't remember committing. There's someone who does know exactly what she did, and they'll do anything to make her forget permanently.

EadieB This has a well-crafted set of characters and a plot that is cleverly written. The twists and turns kept me guessing until the very end. If you love complex thrillers, then you will love this one. I would like to thank NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for a copy for an honest review. (edited) 1mo

Doesn‘t come out until August, but it was calling me. Great thriller with an unreliable narrator. When Liv falls asleep she loses memories of the last two years. And things have happened! I own two of her other books, The Escape Room and Night Swim. They are both moving up on my TBR!

I‘ve loved Goldin‘s other novels so was excited to be approved for this one! Liv awakens in a taxi with no memory of how or why she is there. Alternating between past and present, the book reveals that although she is a suspected murderer, she isn‘t even sure where she lives or who her friends are. This is a delicious train wreck for sure so go into it with a clear head and enjoy the suspense!
Out in August.

Liv wakes up and doesn‘t know where she is, how she got there and the last thing she remembers is answering her office phone. She has messages written on her hands, including one that says “stay awake”. This is the Groundhog Day of novels, with Liv forgetting everything from the last two years as soon as she wakes up. I really enjoyed this read and Goldin is becoming a new favorite author.

I wasn't sure how much I would like this. Usually the missing memory trope is annoying, but this was a very involving book. We receive snippets of information along with Liv. I never believed she was a murderer, but I had no idea who the bad guy was. My only complaint is that it does get a little repetitive, with Liz waking up and losing her memory over and over. This results in alot of explaining that we, the reader, already know.

I devoured this one. It's like a cross between 50 First Dates and Gaslighting. Without the dates. This is a thriller and a mystery. A woman wakes up in a cab and doesn't remember how she got there. The last thing she remembers is answering the phone at her desk at work. This book is awesome and certainly my new fav from this author.
