Waiting on Wednesday: The Next Together

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

 The Next Together by Lauren James
Pub. Date: September 3, 2015


Goodreads says, "How many times can you lose the person you love?  A powerful and epic debut novel for teenagers about reincarnation and the timelessness of first love from a talented young writer.  Teenagers Katherine and Matthew are destined to be born again and again. Each time their presence changes history for the better, and each time, they fall hopelessly in love, only to be tragically separated.  But why do they keep coming back? What else must they achieve before they can be left to live and love in peace? Maybe the next together will be different... In 1745, during the siege of Carlisle, in 1854 on the way to the Crimea, in 2019 and 2039 as first scientists and then students uncovering and rediscovering a dangerous plot, and in multiple timescales between, they are thrown together, with no memory of having met one another before, only an irresistible instinct that they must be with one another against all odds – even while the epic events unfolding all around seem sure to tear them apart."
Yes to all of this! And how gorgeous is that cover? I think it's one of my favorites of the year. What do you guys think?

  1. I like the cover but I think it will appeal more to adults than teens unfortunately. The description however will likely appeal to teens that overlook the cover and pick it up.

    I think there have been similar books for adults before but none that I can recall for teens.

    1. You are probably right about that, Christina. Good point! I am not sure my teenage self would be very impressed by the cover, but as an adult, I absolutely adore it! Thanks for visiting!

  2. This one caught my attention last week. The concept reminds me of Lauren Kate's Fallen series. I've added it to my TBR list as well!

  3. Sounds nice, as a premise. Not sure about the cover though, as it had me thinking "adult" right away. But it is pretty :)

    My wow's at YA Story Teller.
