Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. The purpose of the event is to spotlight the upcoming releases that readers are most looking forward to.

This week, I've chosen...

Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Publisher: Dutton
Release Date: April 5, 2011

It’s been three years since the devastating accident … three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard’s rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia’s home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future—and each other.

Told from Adam’s point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.
(Summary taken from Gayle Forman's website).

I loved If I Stay. By love, I mean that after I finished the book, I lay on my bed and just stared. The only thing I could say was "wow." I am definitely looking forward to reading something else by Forman after that amazing read!

To be honest, I was terrified when I heard there was going to be a sequel. The ending of If I Stay was perfect in my mind and the thought of more being added to the story was a little (a lot) scary. I'm feeling a lot better now that I've heard such positive things from those that have read ARCs of the book. Now, I'm mostly just excited! I have faith in Gayle Forman.

I'm even more excited to be reading from Adam's point of view - ADAM! How great was he?

Really, April 5th - any day now...

  1. I've been seeing that book around the internet a lot the last few days. Maybe have to add it to my TBR list! But wait... it's a sequel? Crap. Now that means I gotta go find the first one!

    Check out what I'm waiting for!
