“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.
This week’s WoW pick is a no-brainer for me:
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Expected publication date: October 8, 2013
Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement: she’s from 1995 Chicago and he’s a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn’t. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds.
It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work…until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn’t want?
Told from Bennett’s point of view, Time After Time will satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what’s next for Time Between Us’s Anna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time.
Look at that soft, autumnal cover! I fell in love with Anna and Bennett when I read Time Between Us last year. It was pitch perfect in terms of the voice and the characters…it’s a quiet, subtle read, if you can say that about a time-travel book. I can’t wait to find out what happens to Anna and Bennett next (in Bennett’s voice, yay!), and I’m really excited to see how Justin and Emma plays out.
Are you excited about Time After Time? What’s on your can’t-wait list this week?
