Review: Asleep from Day

Asleep from Day by Margarita Montimore 


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 been 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).

Get ready to fall down the rabbit’s hole...

Asleep from day is one of kind book. We follow Astrid after a couple of tragedies that change her life forever.

After a car accident, Astrid forgets a day. A very important day when she met a charming guy, Theo. But all she can remember is waking up in an ambulance. While recovering, Astrid’s journey takes the reader for a wild ride. 

A misterious new guy, Oliver, claims he wants to help her remember. But how do you remember something when you can’t tell the difference between what’s real and what is the fantasy your brain is making up? How much is Oliver and how much is Theo in her head? 

Asleep from day is full of weird characters, shady nightlife and more adventures poor Astrid can handle. Her roommates and best friend help the story move along, with their uniques personalities and quirks is easy to feel right at home at The Lab. 

The book descriptions are espectacular, you feel and see the city through Astrid’s eyes and navigate Boston and Astrid’s memories with every page. 

This was a nice surprise. I wasn’t expecting this but I was not disappointed with this book at all. While some parts felt slow, I believe the intention for you to feel foggy is perfect for the book’s mood.
