Standalone Sunday

In my 500 Followers & Giveaway post, I mentioned that I wanted to start a feature called Standalone Sunday. I received quite a few responses from you guys stating that you would enjoy this feature, and some of you would even participate in it with me! So let’s get into it!


Standalone Sunday is a feature created by yours truly where each Sunday we will feature a standalone book (not part of a series) that you loved or would recommend! There’s so much focus on books that are part of a series… I thought it’d be nice to focus on some standalone novels, too!

Feel free to join in on this weekly feature by creating your own Standalone Sunday post! And you’re more than welcome to use the image I created. Link to your post in the comments below so I can check it out!

Only Daughter by Anna Snoekstra

In 2003, sixteen-year-old Rebecca Winter disappeared.


She’d been enjoying her teenage summer break: working at a fast-food restaurant, crushing on an older boy and shoplifting with her best friend. Mysteriously ominous things began to happen—blood in the bed, periods of blackouts, a feeling of being watched—though Bec remained oblivious of what was to come.

Eleven years later she is replaced.

A young woman, desperate after being arrested, claims to be the decade-missing Bec.

Soon the imposter is living Bec’s life. Sleeping in her bed. Hugging her mother and father. Learning her best friends’ names. Playing with her twin brothers.

But Bec’s welcoming family and enthusiastic friends are not quite as they seem. As the imposter dodges the detective investigating her case, she begins to delve into the life of the real Bec Winter—and soon realizes that whoever took Bec is still at large, and that she is in imminent danger.

If you follow my blog, you may have seen my review for Only Daughter by Anna Snoekstra. I loved this book! So I thought it’d be perfect for my first Standalone Sunday post. I received this book through NetGalley and was actually surprised at how well I liked it. If you’re into thrillers and suspense, this is definitely a read for you because it had me literally hanging on the edge of my seat. The ending? You’ll never guess it! An amazing read!
