Waiting on Wednesday: HEARTS & OTHER BODY PARTS and A World Without You


Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and we believe that it's awesome! This blog post is to alert those that visit us about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

NANCY'S WOW!!

This week my WoW is HEARTS & OTHER BODY PARTS by Ira Bloom. I adore a good paranormal read and this book sounds amazing. Witches and spells over boys are the stuff that dreams are made of and I cannot wait to read it.

A novel of love and monsters. 

Sisters Esme, Katy, and Ronnie are smart, talented, and gorgeous, and better yet . . . all three are witches. They have high school wired until the arrival of two new students. The first is Norman, who is almost eight feet tall and appears to be constructed of bolts and mismatched body parts. Despite his intimidating looks, Esme finds herself strangely -- almost romantically -- drawn to both his oversized brain and oversized heart.

The second new arrival is Zack, an impossibly handsome late transfer from the UK who has the girls at school instantly mesmerized. Soon even sensible Esme has forgotten Norman, and all three sisters are in a flat-out hex war to win Zack. But while the magic is flying, only Norman seems to notice that students who wander off alone with Zack end up with crushed bones and memory loss. Or worse, missing entirely.


Hearts & Other Body Parts is a wickedly addictive novel about love, monsters, and loyalty. And oh yeah, a Japanese corpse-eating demon cat.


Christy's WoW

My WoW this week is a book that I am literally waiting to arrive at my local bookstore because we were one of the stores that she chose to send signed copies to. YES. A World Without You looks amazing with its exploration of mental wellness and how we see the world. 


A World Without You
by Beth Revis
July 19th 2016
Pages: 384

Seventeen-year-old Bo has always had delusions that he can travel through time. When he was ten, Bo claimed to have witnessed the Titanic hit an iceberg, and at fifteen, he found himself on a Civil War battlefield, horrified by the bodies surrounding him. So when his concerned parents send him to a school for troubled youth, Bo assumes he knows the truth: that he’s actually attending Berkshire Academy, a school for kids who, like Bo, have "superpowers."


At Berkshire, Bo falls in love with Sofia, a quiet girl with a tragic past and the superpower of invisibility. Sofia helps Bo open up in a way he never has before. In turn, Bo provides comfort to Sofia, who lost her mother and two sisters at a very young age. 

But even the strength of their love isn’t enough to help Sofia escape her deep depression. After she commits suicide, Bo is convinced that she's not actually dead. He believes that she's stuck somewhere in time — that he somehow left her in the past, and now it's his job to save her.

  4. Damn. A World Without You sounds absolutely heartbreaking. I definitely need to pick that one up.

    Hearts and Other Body Parts sounds very intriguing. I don't normally pick up books like that, but I would definitely consider reading that one.
