Expected publication date: October 7th 2014, Atria Books

My rating: 4.5 stars

Book summary:

"Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface."


     K.A. Tucker will release a new novel on October 7th and it is completely new story, not another Ten Tiny Breaths sequel. I was curious about Burying Water after I had read the book summary and even more so because she finally decided to write something new. I wasn't the biggest fan of her first novel, but this one was a pleasant surprise.

      What can you expect? Definitely a darker story. That is probably what caught me of guard because I still expected it to be more like typical new adult romance. It was not. Told from dual point of view, Burying Water is a captivating tale about a girl who wakes up in the hospital with no memories about her past and identity. When they tell her about all horrible things that were done to her, she is not even sure that she wants  to remember. I had to take few seconds to process that part - I am not sure that I would want to know too.
Water moves in with old lady called Ginny and tries to continue with her life. She is brave - it wasn't easy to believe to complete strangers and accept their help.
      My favorite part of the story is Jesse's point of view. It was so different from Water's, you really feel as if you switch from seeing things trough the eyes of two different persons. He is not the best guy out there, but also he tries to do a right thing.

     Burying Water will probably be a great choice for anyone who is reluctant to read new adult novels. It does have few cliches, but I don't think there is a book out there that is completely free of them. Just make sure that your schedule for the day is clear because you wouldn't be able to put down this book until the last page. 

Happy reading,

  1. I absolutely loved this as well and am so happy to see your review Glass!

  2. I really like that you believe this would be a good fit for readers struggling in the New Adult department. I've been meaning to check out a novel by this author for awhile so perhaps this is a good place to start as it contains minimal cliches. Fantastic review, Glass!(:

  3. Definitely going to check this one out now, I wasn't a huge fan of her first book so now I'm confident I'll like this one since you were in the same situation. I like that it's something new, too.

  4. It's interesting, I read a wonderful review about this one and now I'm quite curious about it as well. I haven't read a book by the author yet. But this one could be a good start.

  5. I definitely fall into the reluctant New Adult reader, so other than the occasional cliche, this book sounds perfect for me. Thanks for the heads up about clearing my schedule though, I'll be sure to reserve this title for weekends-only. Hehe Fab review darling!

  6. Oh I so want to read this but I wasn't approved sadly. A lot of people really enjoyed the Ten Tiny Breaths Series, but I haven't actually read any of them. I think I have one, and that's about it! This one seems such a different take from her usual NA that I think I was give this a go in the future. Lovely review Glass! :)

  7. I love stories with memory loss and enjoy Tucker's books. Thanks for the review!

  8. Ooh I love the sound of this! Any book that has you needing to clear you schedule because it's unputdownable is going straight into my TBR. I have had issues with NA lately and have steered clear of those kinds of books, so I'm glad to hear this isn't too heavy on the normal NA cliches. Lovely review!

  9. I'm thrilled you enjoyed this one too, Glass! I was moved by Jesse's POV as well and seeing the emotional turmoil he went through made me long for these two to get their happy ending. Wonderful review! :)

  10. Wow, I really like the mystery aspect in this NA novel, I love KA Tucker and it sounds really intriguing! I'm glad it's not just a romance. Lovely review!

  11. I've had my eye out on the lookout for this book forever. I love KA Tucker's books and this one sounded so different than all her prevous ones that I'm so thrilled you basically confirmed that! I can't wait to read it and fall in love with Jesse's POV too! I feel like this one is definitely going to work for me! Great review Glass :)

  12. Completely agree -- I loved that this was more of a thriller than the typical NA!

  13. Someone has definitely been reading a lot of ARCs lately! Hehe, as long as you are enjoying some of them! I have seen quite a few reviews for this book and like them all this one is also positive. I think this should be added to my TBR!


  14. I haven't read a single book by the author but I've heard lots of great stuff about the book. I'm glad you liked this one. I don't think it is for me, but yay for you! Awesome review, Glass!
