Me on Waiting on Wednesday (162)

Publisher: Amulet Books

From Goodreads:

Everyone has a theory about what’s wrong with Nolan. He has hallucinations. He has seizures. He has an overactive imagination. Or is what Nolan sees whenever he closes his eyes impossibly, fantastically real? 

Nolan longs for a life uninterrupted. Every single time he blinks, he’s transported into the mind of Amara, a girl in another world. As a mute servant who’s tasked with protecting a renegade princess, Amara lives a life of magic and danger and pain; she’s completely unaware that Nolan can see through her eyes. 

Until he becomes more than an observer. Until he learns to control her—and the two of them communicate for the first time. Amara is terrified. Then furious. She’s already spent a lifetime as property and punching bag. The last thing she needs is another force controlling her. 

All Amara and Nolan want is to be free of each other. But Nolan’s breakthrough has dangerous consequences. Now, they’ll have to work together to survive . . . and discover the truth about their connection.

This book is high on my 2014 debuts to read list. It does and doesn't sound like something I'd read, maybe that's why I want to read it so much. And it sounds like it has everything, according to Corinne. Part other-world fantasy, PoC main characters, physically disabled main characters, dual points of view, queer, and a standalone. I'm really looking forward to this. And I like the cover. It gets the point across that they're from different worlds but somehow connected.


  1. This sounds really good!!!


  2. Never heard of this one, but it sounds really unique, might have to check it out myself! Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. Hadn't heard of this, but it sounds interesting!

  4. I just heard about this week and I can't wait to read it. It may need to be a pre-order. LGBTQ, POC, magic and a standalone? SOLD

  5. Yeah I have just been hearing about this one :) I'm super excited for this to come out. I have high hopes for this one! Great choice~
