Welcome to my spot on the blog tour for Small Forgotten Moments – Annalisa Crawford. Thank you to Zooloos Book Tours for the spot on the tour. Read on for more info and my review!
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.
Small Forgotten Moments by Annalisa Crawford surprised me. It was quite an intriguing mix of psychological thriller and paranormal. The writing is stunning. I was drawn in, immediately, and had trouble setting this one down.
Jo is out main character and narrator. She suffers from severe amnesia. She is quite literally haunted by Zenna, who at first, Jo convinces herself, is just a figment of her imagination.
The disorientation, frustration, and growing fear could be felt coming through the pages. It was like I was experiencing this nightmare with Jo. It kept me up late, trying to see what would happen.
The writing, characters, and overall plot of Small Forgotten Memories are very good. I highly recommend giving this one a read.
