Welcome to this week’s edition of Wishlist Wednesday! Today I am featuring The Echo Room by Parker Peevyhouse. This book sounds like a really unique sci-fi novel that will keep you guessing.

Rett wakes on the floor of the same cold, dark room. He doesn’t trust Bryn, but he’ll have to work with her if he ever hopes to escape. They try to break out of the room—
Rett and Bryn hide in a cold, dark room. Safe from what’s outside.
But they’re not alone.
“The Maze Runner meets Memento” (Jeanne Ryan) in The Echo Room, a suspenseful, high-concept first novel with an immersive psychological mystery that follows Rett and Bryn, who are stuck in a time loop and forced to work together until they manage to escape a prison of their own making.
I really enjoyed Parker Peevyhouse’s other novel, Where Future’s End. Books that have lots of suspense and have the reader trying to figure out what will happen next are my favourite kinds. The time-loop aspect is also interesting, and I look forward to finding out how it works for this one.
