Waiting on Wednesday – Someone Like Me by M. R. Carey

June 20, 2018

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme that was hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon. It has gone the way of the wind and is no longer hosted there. But Wishful Endings is now hosting Can’t Wait Wednesday so we can keep the momentum going and link up there.

Love the sound of the two sides to Liz and I’ve loved previous books by Carey, so I’m really looking forward to this one!

From the author of the million-copy bestseller The Girl With All the Gifts comes a heart-stopping high-concept thriller with a gripping supernatural twist that you won’t see coming.


Liz Kendall wouldn’t hurt a fly. She’s a gentle woman devoted to bringing up her kids in the right way, no matter how hard times get.

But there’s another side to Liz—one which is dark and malicious. A version of her who will do anything to get her way, no matter how extreme or violent.

And when this other side of her takes control, the consequences are devastating.

The only way Liz can save herself and her family is if she can find out where this new alter-ego has come from, and how she can stop it.
