Waiting on Wednesday: The Here and Now by Ann Brashares

 "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 The Here and Now by Ann Brashares!

Follow the rules. Remember what happened. Never fall in love.

This is the story of seventeen-year-old Prenna James, who immigrated to New York when she was twelve. Except Prenna didn’t come from a different country. She came from a different time—a future where a mosquito-borne illness has mutated into a pandemic, killing millions and leaving the world in ruins. 

Prenna and the others who escaped to the present day must follow a strict set of rules: never reveal where they’re from, never interfere with history, and never, ever be intimate with anyone outside their community. Prenna does as she’s told, believing she can help prevent the plague that will one day ravage the earth. 

But everything changes when Prenna falls for Ethan Jarves. 
I recently saw this book on a list of upcoming YA novels and the premise has totally captivated me!  I haven't read anything by this author before but this book sounds incredible.  The Here and Now is scheduled for release on April 8, 2014, and you can pre-order HERE.

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??

  15. Two kids. A post office with just one passport line cartier replica. Two hours in saidline. Three hundred dollars rolex datejust replica, several signatures, and a few wallet sizephotos with fake smiles emblazoned on our proof of citizenship for swiss replica watches thenext five years.

    We had big plans to go to Greece this summer rolex masterpiece watches. Athens. Santorini. Ancient ruins meet pristine blue beaches. Moussaka. The perfect triumvirate ofhistory, culture, and seaside frolicking. We have no family to watch theboys for 10 days so we figured instead of waiting 10 more years gucci replica, we pack up the airborne minivan and make it a family road trip.

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of:  My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend , which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother. I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton
