Waiting on: Linked by Imogen Howson

Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions, phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere. 
Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world through another girl’s eyes. 
Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed. 
Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world. 
Riveting, thought-provoking and utterly compelling, Linked will make you question what it really means to be human.

Guys, what is it with me and psychological reads? I am so inexplicably drawn to unreliable narrators with hallucinations or mental disorders or now, apparently, seeing the world through someone else's eyes. AND SECRET TWIN SISTERS. And government attacks! I will do anything to read about dangerous secrets and this sounds absolutely mind-blowing. I can't wait until this one comes out! Plus, isn't that cover trippy?

  3. The cover is definitely trippy. I love stories with sisters so that aspect really appeals to me as does the fact that this sounds different from other things I've read.

  6. That sounds like an interesting book. Actually you had me at "secret twin sisters"! I'm always drawn to stories about those sorts of things. That's such a long time to wait to read it. I guess I'll have to go add it to my goodreads list so I won't forget!
