Blog Tour | Review ― Lost Girls by Merrie Destefano (+ Giveaway)

I always do this thing where I unconciously compare something with another thing I’m already familiar with, and somehow this “another thing” usually ends up being Tokyo Ghoul. It probably skews my opinion of the “something” but it just happens?? Like I’ll read something and my mind goes “hey, that sounds like something that could be in Tokyo Ghoul.

Summary:
Fight Club meets Black Swan—Rachel wakes up in a ditch to find she doesn’t remember the last year of her life, and that everything—including herself—is vastly different than she remembers.

Yesterday, Rachel went to sleep listening to Taylor Swift, curled up in her grammy’s quilt, worrying about geometry.

Today, she woke up in a ditch, bloodied, bruised, and missing a year of her life.

She doesn’t recognize the person she’s become: she’s popular. She wears nothing but black.

Black to cover the blood.

And she can fight.

Tell no one.

She’s not the only girl to go missing within the last year…but she’s the only girl to come back. She desperately wants to unravel what happened to her, to try and recover the rest of the Lost Girls.

But the more she discovers, the more her memories return. And as much as her new life scares her, it calls to her. Seductively. The good girl gone bad, sex, drugs, and raves, and something darker…something she still craves—the rush of the fight, the thrill of the win—something she can’t resist, that might still get her killed…

The only rule is: There are no rules.Read More »
