Waiting on Wednesday (105)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand (2/10/15):

Description (on Goodreads):
The last time Lex was happy, it was before. When she had a family that was whole. A boyfriend she loved. Friends who didn't look at her like she might break down at any moment.

Now she's just the girl whose brother killed himself. And it feels like that's all she'll ever be.

As Lex starts to put her life back together, she tries to block out what happened the night Tyler died. But there's a secret she hasn't told anyone-a text Tyler sent, that could have changed everything.

Lex's brother is gone. But Lex is about to discover that a ghost doesn't have to be real to keep you from moving on.

From New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand, The Last Time We Say Goodbye is a gorgeous and heart-wrenching story of love, loss, and letting go.
Why I’m Waiting:
Embarrassingly, I only read the first book of Hand’s other series. I loved it, and planned on reading the rest, but just haven’t gotten to them yet. I sort of needed a break from YA angel books, but I know I will have to read them all because I loved book 1. And then I read the synopsis of this one. It sounds like a book loaded with feels. I know I enjoy the author’s writing style, and this just sounds like a good one. I think more YA books should deal with topics of mental illness and suicide. Also, I have to know what the text mentioned was about!
What are you waiting on this week?

  1. Great pick! Cynthia Hand has a beautiful writing style, I read the whole Unearthly series and I am curious how it will translate into YA contemporary. It does sound wonderful and I have high hopes.
