WOW #88




I'm waiting on

 The Taking (The Taking, #1)

The Taking by Kimberly Derting
Release Date April 29th 2014

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17838475-the-taking

A flash of white light . . . and then . . . nothing.

When sixteen-year-old Kyra Agnew wakes up behind a Dumpster at the Gas ’n’ Sip, she has no memory of how she got there. With a terrible headache and a major case of déjà vu, she heads home only to discover that five years have passed . . . yet she hasn’t aged a day.

Everything else about Kyra’s old life is different. Her parents are divorced, her boyfriend, Austin, is in college and dating her best friend, and her dad has changed from an uptight neat-freak to a drunken conspiracy theorist who blames her five-year disappearance on little green men.

Confused and lost, Kyra isn’t sure how to move forward unless she uncovers the truth. With Austin gone, she turns to Tyler, Austin’s annoying kid brother, who is now seventeen and who she has a sudden undeniable attraction to. As Tyler and Kyra retrace her steps from the fateful night of her disappearance, they discover strange phenomena that no one can explain, and they begin to wonder if Kyra’s father is not as crazy as he seems. There are others like her who have been taken . . . and returned. Kyra races to find an explanation and reclaim the life she once had, but what if the life she wants back is not her own?

Why I'm Waiting?
Most of you probably know I love memory loss books. Always sold on any book with that storyline. I enjoyed The Body Finder and still need to finish that series so I'm looking forward to more from this author. And what the heck people are taken and then returned maybe by little green men and now she is falling for her ex-boyfriend's little brother which I guess is okay since she hasn't aged in 5 years and he is now with her best friend.

  1. I loved The Body Finder series even though I haven't read the last book...I think. I like memory loss books even though I am confused half the time. FYI-I think I just saw this one Edelweiss.
    Happy Wednesday!

  9. This sounds really good. I'm not sure I'm sold on dating the younger brother though that just isn't something you should do memory loss or not. Great pick!
