Waiting on Wednesday (4/25/18)


You've made it to Wednesday, bookish friends! Congratulations!

I'm slogging through this day. That's pretty much the only way to describe how I feel. If someone were to point me in the direction of a cup a tea and a couch, I'd fall straight asleep. Hahaha. The good part is that it's at least the middle of the week, so we're in the downhill swing to the weekend! Huzzah!

Now, on to my pick for this Wednesday!

I'm eagerly waiting on Salt by Hannah Moskowitz.


Even though their parents disappeared during a hunt three months ago, seventeen-year-old Indi and his siblings, Beleza, Oscar, and Zulu, continue to roam the Mediterranean on their sailboat and hunt down monsters--but Indi yearns for a more settled life for his family, and he hopes that his parents' journal with its tantalizing hints of a treasure, will provide them all with the means of escape from their nomadic and dangerous life before it is too late.


I have been excited about this book since I first saw the description for it, and I honestly can't wait for it to come out! It sounds amazing, and it's not out until October! Gah!

What are you waiting on this week?

Abandoned at birth, Sophie Shields grew up in abusive foster homes, escaping into books and computers for solace. When the constant danger became too much to bear, she ran away, thinking she could survive on her hacking skills alone.
That was until she met Cole Hunter. He became the only person she could trust: her family, her friend, her partner-in-crime. Her everything. After struggling through college and starting their lives together, she believed that nothing could ever tear them apart.
Until it did.
And she’ll do everything in her power to fix what is broken. If it isn’t too late…
———
When Cole was nine years old, he watched his whole family burn to death in a house fire. Fueled by years of obsession, he started one of the world’s leading architectural firms, with a mission to design homes resistant to fire, earthquakes, floods, and every threat known to man.
Sophie was his secret weapon. She was his purpose. Since they were teenagers, he was determined to build a better life for her, so she could finally be safe, and they could be together.
But disaster has always followed Cole around, ripping away everything he loves. This time, if he isn’t careful…
His enemies might just take him down.

Wow. Prepare yourself for a roller-coaster of emotions when you pick up this fabulous book. I could not put it down and you won't want to either.

The alternating timelines and narrators make a smooth transition from story to story filling you in on the sorted past of Sophie and Cole. There is so much to unravel from their bond and love for each other that I don't think I would ever be satisfied with the amount of stories about them.

The raw emotional power of the writing and the intricate descriptions of the minute details bring this story to life in a beautifully tragic way. I found myself lost in the writing and feeling the same things that Sophie experiences on her quest for answers.

I highly recommend you grab this amazing story, a hot cup of coffee, and a comfy chair that you won't want to get up from. You'll want to finish this in one sitting.

USA Today bestselling author Loretta Lost writes to experience all the love and excitement that can often be lacking from real life. She finds it therapeutic to explore her issues through the eyes of a different person. She hopes to have a family someday, but until then her characters will do nicely.
