Waiting On: Don't Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Don't Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout
To be published: April 15, 2014 by Disney-Hyperion
Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive? [goodreads]

I normally shy away from books about characters losing their memory and then becoming a different person because of it.  But something about this particular novel has grabbed my interest.  Perhaps it's because Armentrout wrote it?  Or maybe there seems to be a mystery to the story that I want to find out about?  Whatever the reason, this book has definitely been added to my TBR list.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


  1. This looks gooooooood! It does seem slightly like some kind of mystery book, but with the romance thrown in there. This one is going straight on my TBR list.
    I kind of get what you mean about the 'loosing the memory and becoming a different person' books. But sometimes its more that they become a stronger person and realise that they shouldn't have to put up with what they did before. Some of my favourite 'lost memory' books "Picture Perfect" by Jodi Picoult, "Before I Go To Sleep" by S.J.Watson and "Pushing the Limits" by Katie McGarry.

  2. I actually love books where the MC can't remember things. And it's JLA, so definitely getting this one. Great pick! ~Pam

  3. Oh, this is different from Armentrout's usual writing! I'm really intrigued by the cover and might have to give this one a go.

  4. Yeah, I don't know if I would normally be interested in this book - but since it's a JLA book, I need to read it. Her books are addicting.
