This week I'm waiting on:

Tandem (Many-Worlds, #1)
Title: Tandem
Author: Anna Jarzab
Publisher: Delacorte Books
Release Date: October 8, 2013

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Everything repeats.
You. Your best friend. Every person you know.
Many worlds. Many lives--infinite possibilities.
Welcome to the multiverse.

Sixteen-year-old Sasha Lawson has only ever known one small, ordinary life. When she was young, she loved her grandfather's stories of parallel worlds inhabited by girls who looked like her but led totally different lives. Sasha never believed such worlds were real--until now, when she finds herself thrust into one against her will.

To prevent imminent war, Sasha must slip into the life of an alternate version of herself, a princess who has vanished on the eve of her arranged marriage. If Sasha succeeds in fooling everyone, she will be returned home; if she fails, she'll be trapped in another girl's life forever. As time runs out, Sasha finds herself torn between two worlds, two lives, and two young men vying for her love--one who knows her secret, and one who thinks she's someone she's not.

The first book in the Many-Worlds Trilogy, Tandem is a riveting saga of love and betrayal set in parallel universes in which nothing--and no one--is what it seems.

Why I'm excited:

I really enjoyed this author's All Unquiet Things and that synopsis sounds awesome. Parallel worlds/lives is definitely having its YA moment (Pivot Point, Parallel, As I Wake). As with all trends in books, there are bound to be some winners and losers. Here's hoping this one lives up to the hype. And that cover! With the raven and the pretty stars behind her. Love!

So what are you anxiously waiting for on this last Wednesday in April? Sound off below.

    Teresa @ Readers Live A Thousand Lives

  29. Great pick! This one sounds really interesting. Love the idea of parallel worlds, so much can be done with it.

  30. I've loved parallel/alternate worlds since Philip Pullman's His Dark Material's trilogy, so this one sounds like just my cup of tea. Thanks for dropping by!

    -Amanda @ elfswood

  31. This one sounds really interesting, and it's new to me! I'll have to add it to my list, especially since the commenter above me mentioned His Dark Materials (loved it!). Great pick :)

  32. Tandem sounds really good, it kind of reminds me of the book Pivot Point that read earlier this year, and really loved. Enjoy. Thanks for visiting my site. :)

  33. I haven't read All Unquiet Things, but I must agree that parallel lives/alternate realities premises definitely seem to be trending now in YA! I like the concepts in theory but actually haven't read many of the books yet...I need to remedy that. And yes, that is a very cool cover!

  34. Oh man.....this is ALSO in my WoW list! Waaaay on the top and the cover is beautiful plus, the concept is the book is SUPER amazing. Thanks for stopping by :)

    Jahzeiah @ Mermaed Books

  35. I've seen this book cover floating around, and this is on my TBR, too. If it's even half as good as Pivot Point, I'm sure I'd love it!

    Thanks for visiting.
