is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings
, to spotlight and discuss books you’re excited about that you have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released.
What am I waiting on this week?
Only a Breath Apart by Katie McGarry.
Why am I waiting?
Firstly, Tor Teen isn’t publishing this book until the 22nd January! Secondly, I love the sound of the tragic ‘curse’ – this book has Maggie Steifvater vibes written all over it… (Another favourite author of mine.)
What do you need to know about its author?
Ever since I read Katie McGarry’s debut novel ‘Pushing the Limits
‘ this author has been blowing me away with her YA romances. Sadly, for family reasons
, she won’t be able to do much promotion for this book on her own in the coming months…
Okay, so what does the publisher’s synopsis say?
Jesse Lachlin is cursed…
So the town folklore says, but while Jesse’s had his fair share of tragedy, the only curse he believes is in his grandmother’s will: in order to inherit his family farm he must win the approval of his childhood best friend, the girl he froze out his freshman year, Scarlett Copeland.
Scarlett Copeland is psychic…
Glory Gardner tells Scarlett she has hidden psychic abilities, but Scarlett thinks Glory is delusional. What is real is Scarlett’s father’s irrational fears, controlling attitude, and the dark secrets at home. Scarlett may have a way to escape, but there’s a hitch: she’ll have to rely on the one person she used to trust, the same boy who broke her heart, Jesse Lachlin.
