Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books we are looking forward to being released.
My pick for this week is:
Title: The Love That Split the World
Author: Emily Henry
Expected pub. date: January 26th, 2016
Genre: YA Sci-Fi / Time travel
Natalie Cleary must risk her future and leap blindly into a vast unknown for the chance to build a new world with the boy she loves. Natalie’s last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start... until she starts seeing the “wrong things.” They’re just momentary glimpses at first—her front door is red instead of its usual green, there’s a pre-school where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn’t right.That’s when she gets a visit from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls “Grandmother,” who tells her: “You have three months to save him.” The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it’s as if time just stops and nothing exists. Nothing, except Natalie and Beau.Emily Henry’s stunning debut novel is Friday Night Lights meets The Time Traveler’s Wife, and perfectly captures those bittersweet months after high school, when we dream not only of the future, but of all the roads and paths we’ve left untaken.
Why am I waiting for this book? This one is another really promising debut novel. I think the premise sounds pretty cool. I've been wanting to get into time travel novels a bit more and this one sounds perfect for me to do just that. It makes me think of The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater for some reason and I really like that series but I have never found anything similar, so maybe this is it! I'm intrigued to see how this one turns out, so fingers crossed!
What do you think of my pick for this week WOW?
