Today is my stop on the blogtour for Small Forgotten Moments by Annalisa Crawford, thank you to Zoé at Zooloos Book Tours for organising it and inviting me to take part and thank you to the author and the publisher for my copy.
Synopsis: Is Zenna a muse, a sleep-deprived apparition, or something much more sinister?
Suffering long-term amnesia, artist Jo Mckye is ready to start a fresh, new project after the success of her debut exhibition. But the fictional subject of the collection, Zenna, won’t let go so easily. Infiltrating Jo’s dreams—and increasingly, her waking hours—Zenna is fast becoming a dangerous obsession.
Jo is confident the answers lie at her childhood home, an idyllic Cornish village on the south-east coast; she just doesn’t know why. Only when she walks into the sea and almost drowns does the past start to unravel.
Haunting and melodic, fans of Daphne du Maurier and Daisy Johnson will adore this.
My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧
My Thoughts: I knew I’d enjoy this, but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did!
I devoured it in a couple of hours, I almost couldn’t turn the pages quick enough everything was just perfect.
We’re following Jo, an artist with amnesia who has just had success at her first exhibition! – the only problem being that all her paintings have the same subject Zenna, who she believes to be her childhood imaginary friend, but obviously she can’t remember! – the memories are there she just can’t grasp them!
When Zenna starts infiltrating her dreams and effecting her waking hours, she starts getting an uneasy feeling that the people in her life know more than they are letting on, so she sets out on a journey of discovery to see if she can find out the truth!
It’s eerie, creepy, chilling and totally all consuming! – I can’t say too much because it will ruin the reading experience for you but please please give it a go!
