Waiting on Wednesday: A Song to Take the World Apart by Zan Romanoff

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on:  
A Song to Take the World Apart by Zan Romanoff



From Goodreads:
What if you could make someone love you back, just by singing to them? Fans of Jandy Nelson’s I’ll Give You the Sun and Leslye Walton’s The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender will be captivated by this contemporary love story with hints of magical realism.

Hanging out with Chris was supposed to make Lorelei’s life normal. He’s cooler, he’s older, and he’s in a band, which means he can teach her about the music that was forbidden in her house growing up. Her grandmother told her when she was little that she was never allowed to sing, but listening to someone else do it is probably harmless— right?

The more she listens, though, the more keenly she can feel her own voice locked up in her throat, and how she longs to use it. And as she starts exploring the power her grandmother never wanted her to discover, influencing Chris and everyone around her, the foundations of Lorelei’s life start to crumble. There’s a reason the women in her family never want to talk about what their voices can do.

And a reason Lorelei can’t seem to stop herself from singing anyway.
Okay, I kind of love contemporaries with magical realism (Hi, the Raven Cycle series!) and something about singing to make someone love you back is just fantastical enough to interest me!  A Song to Take the World Apart is scheduled to be released on September 13, 2016, and I can't wait to read it!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??

  20. Magical realism is a genre I've always found difficult to grasp, I have to admit. I don't know if this is completely my cup of tea, but I do like what the blurb is saying! Thank you for visiting my blog earlier this week!
