WoW [74]

Waiting on Wednesday [WoW] is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

The Road by Jay McLean
Expected Publication: December 2014



For four years I watched him roaming the halls of high school, always quiet, without a single clue of his A-list status. Then one night he ran into me, literally. He thought he saved me, but he had no idea how impossible that was. Now he wants to talk. Now he wants to get to know me. Now he thinks he's in love with me.
Stupid, stupid boy.  


I wish I'd found her earlier, but she chose to stay invisible. I watched her take in the world one breath at a time, while living her life alone. I told her that I saved her that night, but I lied. I think she saved me. She wants to push me away and tell me I'm wrong, but it's too late. Now she's been noticed. Now she's a part of me. Now I'm in love with her.
Beautiful, beautiful girl.

Why I Can’t Wait…
I love a story told in dual voices. I feel as if we get the full story. We see things from both sides.

Feel free to link me to yours.


  1. What a great pick - I hope you'll enjoy it :)


  2. I agree with you about the dual voices. It's really great to see both sides of the story, especially within the same book. I'm not a fan of the story being retold from the other perspective in a separate book.

    Also, that cover is amazing.

  3. I too love books told from dual perspectives and while I've never heard of this one before I now really really want it, it's sounds kinda vague and mysterious and like it has the potential to crush my heart and soul....in a good way. =)

    -The Story Goes...

  4. Wow, really intriguing characters. I also enjoy reading books with dual voices. Adding this one to my TBR list.

  6. This sounds very interesting - will keep an eye out for it! So glad to find a blogger who loves football - I'm a fellow football (and most sports) lover!

  7. I always used to hate a chance of perspectives, but really enjoying them now, definitely a great way to get the bigger picture, and being in the head of both the main characters. :)
