Waiting on Wednesday - Parallel

6 Feb 2013
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and it allows readers to share the books that they are most looking forwards to reading.

This week the book i have chosen to feature is Parallel by Lauren Miller.

Parallel




Title: Parallel

Author: Lauren Miller

Series: Standalone

Expected Publication: 14th May 2013 (US) 3rd June 2013 (UK)

This is the US cover, the UK one looks a lot different.


UK cover


I like both covers, but if i had to pick i would say that the US cover is my favourite. It looks beautiful and mature and i love the text for the title.

Synopsis - from goodreads

Abby Barnes had a plan. Get into a great college, major in journalism, and land her dream job at a major newspaper. But on the eve of her 18th birthday, she's stuck on a Hollywood movie set instead, wishing she could rewind her life. But the next morning, she’s in a dorm room at Yale, with no memory of how she got there.

A collision of parallel worlds has left Abby living a new reality every time her younger parallel self makes a new decision. Forced to live out the consequences of a path she didn't choose, Abby must let go on her plans for the future and learn to focus on the present, without losing sight of who she is, the boy who might just be her soul mate, and the destiny that’s finally in reach.

My thoughts

The moment i first heard of this book i just knew i had to read it. I am so intrigued by the synopsis that this book has ended up on my "would-kill-to-read-now" shelf on goodreads, a feat usually only achieved by sequels or books by my favourite authors.

I wish i could read this now, instead i will be impatiently eagerly awaiting for when this is available.

So what do you think of this book? Are you as excited about it as i am? Please share your thoughts including which books you are waiting for in the comments.
