Waiting On Wednesday in a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we discuss an upcoming release that you’re…well…waiting on! And this seems like the perfect excuse to have mini fangirl freakouts over the books I NEED ASAP.
This week, I’m flailing over Follow Me Back
What You Need to Know
Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger
Published by Sourcebooks Fire on June 6th, 2017
Synopsis:Tessa Hart’s world feels very small. Confined to her bedroom with agoraphobia, her one escape is the online fandom for pop sensation Eric Thorn. When he tweets to his fans, it’s like his speaking directly to her…
Eric Thorn is frightened by his obsessive fans. They take their devotion way too far. It doesn’t help that his PR team keeps posting to encourage their fantasies.
When a fellow pop star is murdered at the hands of a fan, Eric knows he has to do something to shatter his online image fast—like take down one of his top Twitter followers. But Eric’s plan to troll @TessaHeartsEric unexpectedly evolves into an online relationship deeper than either could have imagined. And when the two arrange to meet IRL, what should have made for the world’s best episode of Catfish takes a deadly turn…
Told through tweets, direct messages, and police transcripts
Why I’m Flailing
First off, this sounds twisty and awesome. Second, I’ve seen the bad side of fandom – fans doing extreme things in the name of their idols, verbally attacking actors over plotlines on TV shows, sending death threats to celebrities for not dating who they think they should – and HOLY MOLY, its ugly. Throw in some kind of Christina Grimmie-like killing, which is super relevant, and some other kind of deadly happening that has me super intrigued, I am VERY interested in how this is going to go down.
That’s it for me. What books are you waiting on?
