Waitign on Wednesday (235)

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:  This Heart of Mine by C.C. Hunter  (2/27/2018):
Description from Goodreads:
A new heart saved her life—but will it help her find out what really happened to its donor?

Seventeen-year-old Leah MacKenzie is heartless. An artificial heart in a backpack is keeping her alive. However, this route only offers her a few years. And with her rare blood type, a transplant isn’t likely. Living like you are dying isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But when a heart becomes available, she’s given a second chance at life. Except Leah discovers who the donor was — a boy from her school — and they’re saying he killed himself. Plagued with dreams since the transplant, she realizes she may hold the clues to what really happened.

Matt refuses to believe his twin killed himself. When Leah seeks him out, he learns they are both having similar dreams and he’s certain it means something. While unraveling the secrets of his brother’s final moments, Leah and Matt find each other, and a love they are terrified to lose. But life and even new hearts don’t come with guarantees. Who knew living, took more courage than dying?

This Heart of Mine is a haunting, poignant tale about living and dying, surviving grief, guilt, and heartache, while discovering love and hope in the midst of sadness.
Why I’m Waiting:
This sounds amazing, in a weird Lifetime Original Movie type of way. I love stories that involve heart transplants. There’s just something believably magical about thinking that there’s a piece of the old person that goes into the new. I also absolutely love this author. I’ve read all of her other books. She knows how to write romance so well. And this one sounds so completely different from all of her other ones. I can’t wait to read something so new by her, but I also expect some sizzling romance here too.
What are you waiting on this week?
