Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!
Publisher: Kathy Dawson Books
Author: Parker Peevyhouse
Release date: February 9, 2016
Synopsis from Goodreads:
One year from now, Dylan develops a sixth sense that allows him to glimpse another world.
Ten years from now, Brixney must get more hits on her social media feed or risk being stuck in a debtors’ colony.
Thirty years from now, Epony scrubs her entire online profile from the web and goes “High Concept.”
Sixty years from now, Reef struggles to survive in a city turned virtual gameboard.
And more than a hundred years from now, Quinn uncovers the alarming secret that links them all.
Five people, divided by time, will determine the fate of us all. These are stories of a world bent on destroying itself, and of the alternate world that might be its savior–unless it’s too late.
Why I’m excited: Multiple timelines. Virtual worlds. “A sixth sense that allows him to glimpse another world” – YES. And five characters that are decades apart and yet inexplicably linked. This book sounds absolutely fascinating, and I’m really excited to see how these characters are connected. AND the author describes it as “Donnie Darko + Cloud Atlas” on her Twitter AND I NEED IT RIGHT NOW. Plus that cover is so freaking cool. It’s been shelved as both sci-fi AND fantasy on Goodreads, so I’m looking forward to seeing how this book is both.
