Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.
This week I’m eagerly awaiting:
The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle
Expected Release Date: August 20, 2013
For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: Pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now . . . not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?
Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.
And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them . . .

Despite the sort of blech-y end to the book’s blurb, I’m pretty stoked about this one. I loved Myracle’s Shine, and she’s definitely a writer to watch. It looks to be a pretty solid contemporary YA romance with some heavier stuff thrown in. Myracle’s a good enough writer that I think this one will be interesting and good escapism. I’m withholding judgment on the rest of it right now. Either way, it’ll be a great way to end the summer.
What are you waiting on this week?
