Waiting on Wednesday: Grasping at Eternity
Posted by Jenna (Does Books)
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases I’m eagerly anticipating. This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection on Making the Grade is:
Leave it to Maryah Woodsen to break the one rule that will screw up eternity: Never erase your memories.
Before entering this life, Maryah did the unthinkable—she erased. Now, at seventeen years old, she’s clueless that her new adoptive family has known her for centuries, that they are perpetually reincarnated souls, and that they have supernatural abilities. Oh, and she’s supposed to love (not despise) Nathan, the green-eyed daredevil who saved her life.
Nathan is convinced his family’s plan to spark Maryah’s memory is hopeless, but his love for her is undying. After spending (and remembering) so many lifetimes together, being around an empty version of his soul mate is heart shattering. He hates acting like a stalker, but has no choice because the evil outcast who murdered Maryah in their last lifetime is still after her.
While Maryah’s hunter inches closer, she and Nathan make assumptions and hide secrets that rip them further apart. Maryah has to believe in the magic within her, Nathan must have faith in the power of their love, and both need to grasp onto the truth before they lose each other forever—and discover just how lonely eternity can be.
X-MEN meets MY NAME IS MEMORY in Karen Amanda Hooper’s latest young adult release. Coming in May of 2012.
Grasping at Eternity? It’s more like I’m grasping for ANY information I can get on this upcoming book by the author of Tangled Tides. Karen is an outstanding author who captured my interest with her first title, and now I am DYING to know more about Grasping at Eternity. I only wish it would go up on Amazon, or Barnes & Noble, or ANY other store for that matter. Not to mention I love the cover. The title treatment, the peacock feathers, the angle… It all goes together very nicely. Plus, this book deals with living multiple lifetimes, a topic that is central to the book I am writing.
(Oh, and did I mention that Karen is a local author? Yup, exciting, huh?)
