Wide Awake Asleep Cover MEDIUM WEB

** My thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources and Louise Wise for my copy of this book and for inviting me to be part of the blog tour **

 

Description:

Can you really be on the WRONG path in life?

No one knew she was driving on that stretch of road. No one saw her car leave the highway and crash into a watery ditch. No one heard the car’s windscreen smash or saw the tree branch come through to impale her to her seat. No one heard her screams.

Julie Compton’s life should have come to an end that day, but instead, that moment was the beginning of her new life as she wakes, unharmed, back in 1972 and primed to relive her traumatic childhood all over again. One flaw. She’s in the body of a stranger.

Journey back to the 70s and 80s England where Julie is forced to jump through the eras, occupying and controlling other people’s bodies she knew as a child. She must work out which destiny path was the wrong one all while wondering if her body, back in 2016, was dying in her car.

With each momentous change, her memories transform and she realises she’s not only changing her future but of those around her. She’s finally ‘living’ but does that mean she must die?

My Thoughts & Review:

There was something in the description of this book that instantly caught my eye and made me want to read more.  I’m a sucker when it comes to tales with a hint of time travel, I recently enjoyed Stephen King’s 11.22.63 and have been watching Outlander on Amazon so this book had an instant appeal and I was keen to see where Louise Wise would take her character with this.

I enjoyed reading this novel, and found that I was eagerly looking forward to seeing where Julie would end up next with her leaps.  The way that the events of Julie’s past are revisited through her possession of another body is fascinating, she is able to watch and experience the events of her childhood through the perspective of another person which adds another dimension to the tale.  The period details of the 70s and 80s were well written and felt authentic.

A little bit of an open mind is helpful when reading this, as it does hint towards sci-fi but it works.  There are elements of humour and romance woven through the plot making this a well rounded read for those who want to branch out from their comfort zones slightly.  I also found that it got me thinking, if I had the chance, would I go back and change anything about my life…..?

An enjoyable and engaging read!

About the Author:

Louise Wise is a British writer and has been weaving stories all her life—and for many years, she was a ‘closet writer’ with a cupboard is full of ageing manuscripts depicting fantastical romantic adventures!

Most of her books have an element of romance, but tend to cross over into other genres, giving them a unique edge.

Her debut novel is the best-selling sci-fi romance EDEN, which was followed by its sequel HUNTED in 2013.

A PROPER CHARLIE is a romantic comedy written purely for the chick lit market, but then she decided to unite her love of all things supernatural with romance and OH NO, I’VE FALLEN IN LOVE and WIDE AWAKE ASLEEP came along.

Her other works include SCRUFFY TRAINERS (a collection of short stories with a twist). She has written numerous short stories for women’s magazines including Women’s Own and Take a Break.

She loves hearing from her readers – the good, the bad and the ugly stuff they want to share!
