Decembers Pre-loved giveaway is If I Should Die Before I Wake by Michelle Morris

Book condition is great, the spine has no creases and isn't broken. There are a few indent marks on the cover and the back cover has a little residue from a previous sticker and a borders sticker on the bottom of the back cover.

From what I remember this book is not for the faint hearted.

This will run until the last day of the month in December and due to New Year will post out a little later when normal postal services resume. Good luck and feel free to share the link.

Blurb From Goodreads

Carla spends a summer night sitting by her father's bed, his gun on her knees. When he wakens she will get retribution for the childhood he has stolen from her and her mind, which he has destroyed. As she realizes the full horror of her life and despair, she relives the years of loneliness, self-disgust and pain she has endured. Exploring the troubled mind of a brutalized teenager and the violent, abusive intimacy of a daughter and her father, "If I Should Die Before I Wake" depicts Carla's disintegrating world with an unforgettable intensity. Michelle Morris has written a literary classic about the fundamental taboo of our society, incest.

  2. Not for the faint-hearted indeed. I would love to read IF I SHOULD DIE BEFORE I WAKE thank you.


  3. Am new to your site, and you're pre-loved giveaways (which I think are a wonderful idea!)

    Sounds like a great read.


  4. I would be very interested in your pre-loved giveaways. This type of book isn't something that I would naturally gravitate toward, but I'm always looking for a new and interesting story. This sounds like a story that could definitely hold my interest!

  5. It sounds like a very intense read. Thanks for having the giveaway and I'd be interested in reading it.

  7. thankyou so much for the giveaway!
    this books looks extremly interesting but also very emotional!

  8. Thank you for the giveaaway! This sounds like an intense book! Would love to read it.

  9. This looks interesting. There are many books of this genre, and each time you hope that each one is vastly different from others you have read and you realise they are. So much abuse in so many different forms can be read about now. Sad.

  10. There is a lot of ignorance and nastyness in the world and you hope the people who get hurt and write about it have a happy ending as they deserve.
