I greatly enjoyed this novel. My favorite thing is the way in which the story is presented, jumping along two main timelines. Goldin does this in a way that maximizes the suspense and big reveals while also creating enough confusion to allow the reader to step into Liv‘s shoes and live her confusion and unknown without creating actual confusion. I liked the characters as well. Stay Awake definitely kept me awake; I could barely put it down.

Such a creative thriller. Based on Liv losing her recent memory every time she falls asleep, the psychological aspects of this book were unnerving. The plot is written in an interesting dual timeline that, though a little disorienting, really added to the tension. As things slowly unfold, it can get a little repetitious to have Liv fall asleep, wake, & basically start over again & again. Despite some minor flaws, a really fun & well-moving read.

I finished my first book for #Scarathlon2022 and it was excellent. I was engaged all the way. It kind of reminded me of Memento the movie... just a little. An excellent thriller for sure, definitely original and refreshing!

Word Search = 1,790 (forgot about it until about 50%)

Liv wakes in the back of a cab with no memory of how she got there. Things get worse when she gets to her apartment and finds strangers living there. Each time she falls asleep, she loses her memory again. Then, she‘s implicated in a murder. This was a fun thriller that kept my attention. I guessed some parts but not others. Great premise!

Talk about an unreliable narrator. Liv Reese has memory issues and we are in the dark right along with her. Who can she trust? Who does she know? Who knows her? Stalking,, murder, more stalking, more murder, terror, suspicion, unknown danger, it‘s a wild ride. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oh, I absolutely couldn‘t put this one down! I‘m an absolute sucker for amnesia stories & Liv‘s narrative sucked me right in as she wakes with mysterious messages on her hands & soon realizes that she‘s lost two years of her life. Like a terrible version of Groundhog Day, new memories are erased each time she wakes up. Meanwhile the NYPD is on the hunt for a killer… with stomach-churning tension & surprises to the storyline, this is Goldin‘s best!

One of my favorite books this year! Kept me on the edge of my seat with suspense.

I cannot even begin to imagine how it would be to be in Liv Reese‘s shoes. For the past two years, her memories are erased every time she falls asleep. She does everything she can to stay awake, but a severe lack of sleep wreaks havoc on one physically and mentally.

ShyBookOwl Sounds like Memento meets Nightmare on Elm Street 😬 4mo

The kicker in this one is that it‘s an extensive emotional ride, moment to moment changes in my thinking - did Liv do it? Yup, smugly convinced she did. 10 seconds later I‘m feeling so much compassion for someone who forgets a heap of time every time she wakes up (terrifying!) and am absolutely convinced she‘s innocent. Ugh… the back and forth was riveting and I loved it (c‘mon that‘s goooood reading Y‘all!) Full review: ScrappyMags.com

I‘ve been a Megan Goldin fan since The Escape Room. Stay Awake is a taut thriller about a woman whose memory resets back two years every time she wakes up, only this time she wakes to discover she‘s carrying a bloody knife wrapped in a t-shirt. Most of the book takes place over 1 day as the police investigate a murder & Liv tries to figure out what is happening to her. It‘s a brilliant, terrifying, edge-of-your-seat novel that gave me nightmares.

FULL REVIEW 8/11

Liv Reese must stay awake or she forgets everything that happened.

She is really in a dilemma when she wakes up this time.

She has messages all over her hands and one of the messages on her hands is scrawled in blood on the window of a murder scene.

You will be glued to the pages.

It keeps getting better and better as you turn the pages with a great ending.

Don't miss this one. 5/5

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⭐️ 5mo

🎧 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.

👇🏻
6mo
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) 7mo

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.
