Cat Jordan's Newest Novel: Eight Days on Planet Earth

Hey, little Hardcover Lovers! Today, I wanted to let you know about an upcoming book that I'm so excited for!

Some of you may recall that I read and reviewed Cat Jordan's The Leaving Season last year, and that I loved it! Well today, I wanted to let you know that you'll be able to get your hands in Cat's sophomore novel, Eight Days on Planet Earth, in November.

Title: Eight Days on Planet Earth
Author: Cat Jordan
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: November 7, 2017

How long does it take to travel 13 light-years to Earth?
How long does it take to fall in love? 
To the universe, eight days is a mere blip—but to Matty Jones, it may be just enough time to change his life. 
On the hot summer day Matty’s dad leaves for good, a strange girl suddenly appears in the empty field next to the Jones farm—the very field in rural Pennsylvania where a spaceship supposedly landed fifty years ago. She is uniquely beautiful, sweet, and smart, and she tells Matty she’s waiting for her spaceship to return to pick her up.
Of course she is.

Matty has heard all the impossible UFO stories for all of his seventeen years: the conspiracy theories, the wild rumors, the crazy belief in life beyond the stars. As a kid, he searched the skies with his dad and studied the constellations. But all that is behind him now. Dad’s gone and Matty’s stuck.
But now there is Priya. The self-proclaimed alien girl. She must be crazy or high, right?

As Matty unravels the mystery of Priya, he realizes there is far more to her than he first imagined.
And if he can learn to believe in what he can’t see: the universe, aliens…love…then maybe the impossible is possible, after all.

So why am I telling you about this book now - in July?

For me, I know that as soon as I learn about a new book, I want to read it. That's the case with Eight Days on Planet Earth. I want it now.

Another reason I wanted to tell you about this book now? Cat Jordan is going to be giving away galleys of it on her Instagram. She wanted me to let you guys know to be sure to follow her (cat_jordan_books), so you don't miss out on winning an early copy of this new book.

Oh, and definitely be sure to follow Cat because she might have some awesome things planned for the book's release party!
