What I'm Waiting On...

 Title: When We Collided 
Author: Emery Lord
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Publication Date: April 5, 2016
Meet Vivi and Jonah: A girl and a boy whose love has the power save or destroy them.

Vivi and Jonah couldn't be more different. Vivi craves anything joyful or beautiful that life can offer. Jonah has been burdened by responsibility for his family ever since his father died. As summer begins, Jonah resigns himself to another season of getting by. Then Vivi arrives, and suddenly life seems brighter and better. Jonah is the perfect project for Vivi, and things finally feel right for Jonah. Their love is the answer to everything. But soon Vivi's zest for life falters, as her adventurousness becomes true danger-seeking. Jonah tries to keep her safe, but there's something important Vivi hasn't told him.

Perfect for fans of E. Lockhart and Jandy Nelson, When We Collided is a powerful story of two teens whose love is put to the test by forces beyond their control.

Why I'm Waiting...

It's pretty clear to me now that I'm an Emery girl fangirl, and I am not ashamed of it. Nope. Not ashamed at all. I just love her work. It's always so emotional, but it's still perfectly and realistically flawed. I'm an Emery fangirl for life. I will read anything by her, and I mean it. I'm just that impressed by her two published novels.

First of all... look at that cover! It's not what I was expecting after seeing the cover art for Ms. Lord's two previous titles, but I love it!

Anyway, I knew halfway through reading The Start of Me and You that I needed this book in my life. Ms. Lord was amazing at teasing fans all through The Start of Me and You with the romance, so I'm expecting huge things from When We Collided. And it falls into that ocean of issue books that I love to explore! I can't wait to get my hands on this baby, and I really, and I mean really hope that I somehow end up with an ARC of this one because I just know that I'll go crazy waiting to read this one.

What Are You Waiting On...

Like always, ladies and gentlemen, feel free to let me know if you're anticipating this title from Emery Lord or another book. Feel free to leave a comment or a link to your Waiting on Wednesday posts. I love checking them out to see what everyone plans on reading!

  1. I still haven't read anything by Emery Lord *hides in shame* However, upon seeing the synopsis for this one, I was immediately intrigued. I really, really want to read her other two books since I've heard tons of positive things. I'm definitely going to give them a try!

    Also, I love the cover on this one!

  2. I still haven't read an Emery Lord book yet (on my TBR) but this one sounds great and I LOVE the cover! Great pick!

  3. I have this on my tbr also. I hope we both enjoy reading it!
    My WoW

  4. Don't hide in shame! It took me months before I finally read Open Road Summer. I hope you let me know how you like her books when you read them. She's definitely one of my favorites. :)

  5. Doesn't it? I wanted this one as soon as I read the synopsis. I would have featured it ages ago, but I wanted the cover to be a part of it as well, and I'm glad I waited because the cover is awesome!

    Thanks, Grace! :)

  6. We will definitely have to check in on one another when we read it! :)

  7. I'm yet to read anything by Emery Lord *sigh* but I shall, eventually! I really like the cover of this one :)

  8. Oh no! If you're a fan of contemporary YA with meaning, you'd probably like her. She's among my favorite authors.

    And the cover for this one is just gorgeous! I love it.

  9. This book does sound so good. I heard excellent things about Emory's other book so I'm excited for this one. Have an awesome week!

  10. Doesn't it!? I loved both of Emery's previous novels, so I'd definitely recommend you check them out. Open Road Summer was really good, but The Start of Me and You was just amazing. It blew me away, so I definitely have high hopes for this one.

    Thanks, Krystianna!
