WoW

I've signed up to do WoW at Breaking the Spine.  WoW stands for Waiting on Wednesday, so each Wednesday I'll put a post about the book I most want to read that week.  My first one is:

Entangled by Cat Clarke





Summary: 

The same questions whirl round and round in my head:
What does he want from me?
How could I have let this happen?
AM I GOING TO DIE?

17-year-old Grace wakes up in a white room, with a table, pens and paper - and no clue how she got here.

As Grace pours her tangled life onto the page, she is forced to remember everything she's tried to forget. There's falling hopelessly in love with the gorgeous Nat, and the unravelling of her relationship with her best friend Sal. But there's something missing. As hard as she's trying to remember, is there something she just can't see?

Grace must face the most important question of all. Why is she here?  


WHY DO I WANT TO READ THIS???
That's the question that I have to ask my self.


1.  The cover.  Astounding!  I wish I could find a better word for it, but. . . No, I can't.  I have always wanted to dye my hair that colour, that bright shade of red.  Her expression says everything on the cover.  She's confused.  She's innocent.  She's helpless.  She doesn't know what to do.


2.  The plot/idea.  It should sound like a regular amnesia story, right?  Well, to me it doesn't.  The white room does it for me.  From the summary, I want to know everything that she's remembering in that room. . . And what she isn't.  What is that thing that she can't remember?  Why can't she remember it?


3.  Reviews that I've read.  Apparently, it has amazing description.   You can feel her love and her hate, and every other emotion that she feels.   The book has been described as painful, and although that doesn't sound good to most people, to me it does.  If you can feel her pain, then the author has to have written it well.  I love reading books with emotion.
