Waiting on Wednesday (15)

Waiting on Wednesday is an awesome meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine =)

This Wednesday, I came across this cool-looking book, The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg, releasing February 12, 2012.

Summary (goodreads):

BRIE’S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn’t love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally.

But now that she’s D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there’s Patrick, Brie’s mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after.

With Patrick’s help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she’s ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces?

“Inventive, gorgeous, funny and yes . . . heartbreaking. You will absolutely love this book.” — Lauren Oliver, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall and Delirium.

UH, DID YOU SEE THE BLURB BY LAUREN OLIVER? I happen to love Lauren Oliver’s beautiful writing, and if she thought this book was awesome…I’m guessing it will be. Call me biased, but whatevs =)

So, well, I thought for some reason that this was a contemporary, and it is, sort of, with a supernatural twist. But I have a feeling I’m going to enjoy it. And the title is AWESOME.

What are you guys waiting on this Wednesday? Drop a link- I’d love to visit!
