Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
Forget Me Not by Alexandra Oliva (March 2, 2021 by Ballantine Books)
Described as a combination of genres including futuristic sci-fi, action adventure, and psychological thriller, Forget Me Not is the second novel by Alexandra Oliva since her impressive debut The Last One. Given the twists and surprises in that one, this should be interesting!
“She was born for all the wrong reasons. But her search for the truth reveals answers she wishes she could forget in this suspenseful and deeply moving novel from the author of The Last One.
What if your past wasn’t what you thought?
As a child, Linda Russell was left to raise herself in a 20-acre walled-off property in rural Washington. The woods were her home, and for twelve years she lived oblivious to a stark and terrible truth: Her mother had birthed her only to replace another daughter who died in a tragic accident years before.
And then one day Linda witnesses something she wasn’t meant to see. Terrified and alone, she climbs the wall and abandons her home, but her escape becomes a different kind of trap when she is thrust into the modern world—a world for which she is not only entirely unprepared, but which is unprepared to accept her.
And you couldn’t see a future for yourself?
Years later, Linda is living in Seattle and immersed in technology intended to connect, but she has never felt more alone. Social media continually brings her past back to haunt her, and she is hounded by the society she is now forced to inhabit. But when Linda meets a fascinating new neighbor who introduces her to the potential and escapism of virtual reality, she begins to allow herself to hope for more.
What would it take to reclaim your life?
Then an unexplained fire at her infamous childhood home prompts Linda to return to the property for the first time since she was a girl, unleashing a chain of events that will not only endanger her life but challenge her understanding of family, memory, and the world itself.”

Sounds like an interesting mix. I could see this going a lot of different directions, so I’d be curious to read it and see where it really goes.
Hmm, sounds a bit trippy for me – I’ve never been able to get into VR stories – but cool concept.
I remember how much you loved The Last One. Definitely adding this to my TBR!😁 And the cover is so pretty!
Interesting! Not sure this is one I’d pick up but I hope that you enjoy it! 😀
