Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Through to You by Emily Hainsworth - To be released October 2nd, 2012
Camden Pike has been grief-stricken since his girlfriend, Viv, died. Viv was the last good thing in his life: helping him rebuild his identity after a career-ending football injury, picking up the pieces when his home life shattered, and healing his pain long after the meds wore off. And now, he’d give anything for one more glimpse of her. But when Cam makes a visit to the site of Viv’s deadly car accident, he sees some kind of apparition. And it isn’t Viv.
The apparition’s name is Nina, and she’s not a ghost. She’s a girl from a parallel world, and in this world, Viv is still alive. Cam can’t believe his wildest dreams have come true. All he can focus on is getting his girlfriend back, no matter the cost. But things are different in this other world: Viv and Cam have both made very different choices, things between them have changed in unexpected ways, and Viv isn’t the same girl he remembers. Nina is keeping some dangerous secrets, too, and the window between the worlds is shrinking every day.
As Cam comes to terms with who this Viv has become and the part Nina played in his parallel story, he’s forced to choose—stay with Viv or let her go—before the window closes between them once and for all.
(Summary from goodreads.)
Why I want this: Because we've acknowledged that I enjoy books that make me cry and I suspect this one will. Possibly quite a bit. Also, yay for male-narrated YA books!
Touching the Surface by Kimberly Sabatini - To be released October 30th, 2012
Life altering mistakes are meant to alter lives…
When Elliot dies for the third time, she knows this is her last shot. There are no fourth-timers in this afterlife, so one more chance is all she has to get things right. But before she can move on to her next life, Elliot will be forced to face her past and delve into the painful memories she’d rather keep buried. Memories of people she’s hurt, people she’s betrayed… and people she’s killed.
As she pieces together the mistakes of her past, Elliot must earn the forgiveness of her best friend and reveal the truth about herself to the two boys she loves…even if it means losing them both forever.
(Summary from goodreads.)
Why I want this: First of all, her name is cool. Second, I have this thing for reincarnation love stories. Just one of the facets of my personality. Like a diamond!
Um. Anyways. I love the sound of this one but is anyone else not in love with the cover? Or do I just have bird issues? (Could be that.)
What are you guys waiting on this week?
Peace and cookies,
