Waiting on Wednesday 12-12-12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.


This week I am going to do two. The first one is This Strange and Familiar Place by Rachel Carter. I really liked So Close to You and am looking forward to this one!!
  • Publisher: HarperTeen
  • Expected Publish Date: July 2, 2013 
    There is still no synopsis for this book, but I still really want this. I thought the first book was great so this one is one I will definitely be reading.
     

    The next book I am really looking forward to is Parallel by Lauren Miller. This just sounds awesome!!


    • Publisher: HarperTeen
    • Publication date: 5/14/2013

    Abby Barnes had a plan. Get into a great college, major in journalism, and land a dream job at a major newspaper. But on the eve of her 18th birthday, she is stuck on a Hollywood movie set, wishing she could rewind her life. The next morning, she’s in a dorm room at Yale, with no memory of how she got there. A cosmic collision of parallel universes has left Abby living a new reality every time parallel Abby makes a decision. Now Abby must race against time to take control of her fate without losing sight of who she is, the boy who might just be her soul mate, and the destiny that’s finally in reach.

    See a theme this week. One about time travel, one about parallel universes. I think they both are going to be awesome!! The idea of parallel universes is just so cool and time travel is something that has always interested me. What book or books are you waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments or leave me a link.

  1. Great picks! I just saw the cover for This Strange and Familiar Place the other day and it reminded me that I need to read So Close to You still. Also I haven't heard of Parallel yet but that definitely sounds good!
