Waiting on Wednesday: Vanishing Girls

Wednesday, 11 February 2015


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where the participants tell their readers about an upcoming release they are waiting to read. This week I've picked Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver. *Book cover gif created by Epic Reads

New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping story about two sisters inexorably altered by a terrible accident.

Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged. When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked.

Now Nick has to find her sister, before it's too late. In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.

"Alarming and uplifting, a rare psychological thriller that has a kind heart at its center. Read it with all the lights on." --E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars

I love a psychological thriller that works and I have an ARC of this, so hopefully this one wows me when I get to reading it!

Releasing 10th March 2015

  1. Oh yes, I have read that one. It was an okay book, but not as good as some of her other stuff. The pacing was a little slow in parts. But the ending was amazing. It blew me away!

  3. I got a copy in the mail as well! It was never even on my radar so I'm not sure when I'll get around to it to be honest. I have no expectations so I hope I get mind blown by awesomeness :D

  4. I love a great physiological thriller as well, ever since reading Dangerous Girls, I've been trying to find something awesome enough to keep my attention. I've had a love / hate relationship with Lauren Oliver books, so really looking forward to seeing how this one works out. Nice choice Eugenia, looking forwards to seeing your thoughts on it <3

    1. Yes! Dangerous Girls was a definite mind-blower so I've been looking for something just as good, if not better, ever since. I do hope that this one delivers...
