Waiting On...

Title: The Square Root of Summer
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
Publication Date: May 3, 2016

This is what it means to love someone. This is what it means to grieve someone. It's a little bit like a black hole. It's a little bit like infinity.

Gottie H. Oppenheimer is losing time. Literally. When the fabric of the universe around her seaside town begins to fray, she's hurtled through wormholes to her past:

To last summer, when her grandfather Grey died. To the afternoon she fell in love with Jason, who wouldn't even hold her hand at the funeral. To the day her best friend Thomas moved away and left her behind with a scar on her hand and a black hole in her memory.

Although Grey is still gone, Jason and Thomas are back, and Gottie's past, present, and future are about to collide—and someone's heart is about to be broken.

Why I'm Waiting...

It's no secret that I love a good time travel novel. When I first saw that Harriet Reuter Hapgood's debut was being compared to The Time Traveler's Wife, I almost lost it because that's just one of my all time favorite books. I'm really excited to see everything that happens when Gottie starts traveling through time. This seems like it's going to be a really emotional book, and I am ready to dive in and see what it's all about.

What Are You Waiting On...

Now that you know I'm waiting for The Square Root of Summer, it's time to fill me in on what's on your minds. What books are you waiting on this week? Are they coming out soon like my pick or do you have to wait a little bit longer? Feel free to leave the titles in the comments, or leave a link to your own Waiting on Wednesday posts.
