"Waiting On" Wednesday 14
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
By Alexandra Monir
Delacorte Books for Young Readers, to be released January 11, 2011
When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor’s world, she is forced to uproot her life and move across the country to New York City, to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she’s never met. In their old Fifth Avenue mansion filled with a century’s worth of family secrets, Michele discovers a diary that hurtles her back in time to the year 1910. There, in the midst of the glamorous Gilded Age, Michele meets the young man with striking blue eyes who has haunted her dreams all her life—a man she always wished was real, but never imagined could actually exist. And she finds herself falling for him, into an otherworldly, time-crossed romance.
Michele is soon leading a double life, struggling to balance her contemporary high school world with her escapes into the past. But when she stumbles upon a terrible discovery, she is propelled on a race through history to save the boy she loves—a quest that will determine the fate of both of their lives.

My mom, also a big reader, has always said she looks for two things when picking out a book for herself: (1) romance and (2) time travel.
So when I read this book's description and thought, "Oooh, romance and time travel," it hit me: I've become my mother.
It was bound to happen someday, and, well, I suppose it could have happened over worse things than a good book description.
Regardless, I'm looking forward to Timeless when it comes out next week. Sounds a little bit like The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller, no? What book are you waiting on this Wednesday?
