Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.
There are so many books I’m excited about, so I’ll definitely keep doing Waiting on Wednesday. With that said, here’s my pick that I can’t wait for.
Title: The Art of Not Breathing
Author: Sarah Alexander
Publisher: HMH Books for Young Readers
Publication date: April 26, 2016
Summary (via Goodreads): Since her twin brother, Eddie, drowned five years ago, sixteen-year-old Elsie Main has tried to remember what really happened that fateful day on the beach. One minute Eddie was there, and the next he was gone. Seventeen-year-old Tay McKenzie is a cute and mysterious boy that Elsie meets in her favorite boathouse hangout. When Tay introduces Elsie to the world of freediving, she vows to find the answers she seeks at the bottom of the sea.
Why I Chose This Book:
I love the cover of this book. Just based on this summary, the book reminds me a little of some of my all-time favorites (The Start of Me and You & I’ll Give You the Sun). I think this book can be a really great emotional contemporary read, if it’s done right. Fingers crossed that that’s the case!
