Simply riveting from start to finish... a captivating, literary piece that winds a path somewhere between mystery, romance, and psychological thriller.” – D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"A compelling and original take on the classic amnesia tale... The dialogue is expertly crafted. The narrative bursts with detailed, vivid characters. — The BookLife Prize

Astrid can't remember the best day of her life: yesterday.

A traumatic car accident erases Astrid’s memories of September 9th, the day she spent with an oddly charming stranger named Theo. Ever since, she’s haunted by surreal dreams and an urgent sense that she’s forgotten something important.

One night, she gets a mysterious call from Oliver, who knows more about her than he should and claims he can help her remember. She accepts his help, even as she questions his motives and fights a strange attraction to him.

In order to find Theo and piece together that lost day in September, Astrid must navigate a maze of eccentric Boston nightlife, from the seedy corners of Chinatown to a drug-fueled *Alice-in-Wonderland-*themed party to a club where everyone dresses like the dead.

In between headaches and nightmares, she struggles to differentiate between memory, fantasy, and reality, and starts to wonder if Theo really exists. Eventually, she’ll need to choose between continuing her search for him or following her growing feelings for Oliver.

Astrid might go to extreme lengths to find what she’s lost... or might lose even more in her pursuit to remember (like her sanity).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I believe the entire experience was very different and I thoroughly enjoyed how the literature was dominating my train of thoughts to the end. Asleep from day is a psychological suspense and romantic story about Astrid. The story is based in Boston, and Astrid has a car accident that erases her memory. As flashbacks and dreams follow along with her, she vaguely remembers a guy named Theo. In pursuit of who he was and what that means, she meets Oliver. While the story interchanges between what is real and what’s not, the plot unravels revealing a truly extraordinary story to be read. Astrid is an extremely loving character. Almost immediately you can connect and bond with her situation and her feelings. The intensified dark mystery in the storyline definitely added to its multidimensional aspect of enforcing the reader to contemplate what scene is real. The world building was great. The description was just enough, enabling the reader to visualize through the scenes and enjoy the twists of the story. Having a good storyline is not the only thing this book offers. It also came with great writing. The literature standard was very unique to its plot. Even to the end, the story had you guessing and wondering. What did, however, make me wonder was the ending. It did not provide a full closure and subjected the reader to its own interpretation. Knowing that there is no sequel to this book, I was a little confused on what merit this had and the impression it left. I believe the entire experience was very different and I thoroughly enjoyed how the literature was dominating my train of thoughts to the end.
