Books From the Backlog - Have You Seen Me?

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  Have You Seen Me? by Kate White

Blurb:  On a cold, rainy morning, finance journalist Ally Linden arrives early to work in her Manhattan office, only to find that she’s forgotten her keycard and needs to have a colleague she’s never met let her in. When her boss finally arrives, he seems surprised to see her—because she hasn’t worked there in five years.

Ally knows her name, but little else, and it’s only after several hours in an emergency room and multiple interviews with the hospital psychiatrist that she begins to piece together important facts: she lives on the Upper West Side; she’s now a freelance personal finance journalist; she’s married to a lovely man named Hugh. But she still can’t recall what happened to her during the previous two days. When she learns that she’s experienced a dissociative fugue state, Ally tries to think of triggers and remembers that she’d been seeing a therapist about a traumatic event from her childhood, in which she came across evidence for a murder that was never solved.

Desperate to unearth answers, Ally focuses on figuring out where she spent the missing forty-eight hours. As ominous details of the two days pile up, so does the terrifying pressure: she must recover the time she lost before the time she has left runs out.

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  This one looked so good when it came out and I just had to have it.  But yet I still haven't read it!


  1. I loved this book! I hope you do, too.

  2. I don't think I've read this author. I hope you get the chance to read it!

  3. It does indeed sound good, but I do know the scenario of books sounding great, buying and then sitting on the shelf with lots of other great books!

  4. I'll be looking forward to what you think! 📚

  5. I don't think that I have read this author yet. This sounds really good!
