Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine! It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

I'm waiting to read...

Fracture by Megan Miranda!

Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine

-despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she's far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?

Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she's reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy's motives aren't quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature-or something much more frightening?

For fans of best-sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death. (summary from Goodreads)

I have yet to read Before I Fall, but I've heard nothing but good things about it...and I love If I Stay! So I am definitely adding this to my TBR list!

Megan Miranda's Fracture is due for release on 3 January 2012.

  16. @Lacey Thanks so much, Lacey!

    Baggins is most certainly from LotR! My family all read and enjoyed the books and when I went to Uni I was a bit of a hobbit - much happier in my room than out partying! So my Dad started to call me Kimbo Baggins and it stuck! :-D

    Thanks heaps for following!
