Waiting on Wednesday: Replica

Hey Wishers! It’s Wednesdayyy! Which means I’m waiting on…

Replica by Lauren Oliver


Amazon | Goodreads

Publish Date: October 4th, 2016 (SOOO FAR AWAYYYY)

Description from Goodreads:

Gemma has been in and out of hospitals since she was born. ‘A sickly child’, her lonely life to date has revolved around her home, school and one best friend, Alice. But when she discovers her father’s connection to the top secret Haven research facility, currently hitting the headlines and under siege by religious fanatics, Gemma decides to leave the sanctuary she’s always known to find the institute and determine what is going on there and why her father’s name seems inextricably linked to it.

Amidst the frenzy outside the institute’s walls, Lyra – or number 24 as she is known as at Haven – and a fellow experimental subject known only as 72, manage to escape. Encountering a world they never knew existed outside the walls of their secluded upbringing , they meet Gemma and, as they try to understand Haven’s purpose together, they uncover some earth-shattering secrets that will change the lives of both girls forever…

Lauren Oliver is such an amazing writer and I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a book like Replica. If you don’t already know, this book is actually two stories: one in Lyra’s POV and the other in Gemma’s. One half of the book is Lyra’s and the other is Gemma’s, so you flip the book around to read each one. I know there are at least three different ways to read it, and I have no idea which one I’m going to chose!

Are you guys waiting on Replica, too? Let me know below 🙂

    1. The first side of the book is Gemma’s POV, and the other side is Lyra’s. You can read one chapter from Gemma’s part, and then flip the book and read one chapter from Lyra’s. Or you can just read one their POV’s all the way through and switch to the other one after. It’s kinda confusing 😂
