Waiting on Wednesday: Things We Know by HeartWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers can share upcoming releases they're looking forward to.
My pick for this week is:
Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby
Expected Publication Date: April 21st, 2015
When Quinn Sullivan meets the recipient of her boyfriend’s donated heart, the two form an unexpected connection.
After Quinn loses her boyfriend, Trent, in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the pieces of her now-unrecognizable life. She hears back from some of them, but the person who received Trent’s heart has remained silent. The essence of a person, she has always believed, is in the heart. If she finds Trent’s, then maybe she can have peace once and for all.
Risking everything in order to finally lay her memories to rest, Quinn goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas—a guy whose life has been forever changed by this priceless gift. But what starts as an accidental run-in quickly develops into more, sparking an undeniable attraction. She doesn't want to give in to it—especially since he has no idea how they're connected—but their time together has made Quinn feel alive again. No matter how hard she’s falling for Colton, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she’s lost…and all that remains at stake.
Let me start out by saying Jessi Kirby is awesome. She was actually the very first YA author I ever met. She came and talked to my seventh grade English class about her writing process and getting published and all that fun stuff when her debut, Moonglass, came out. This was more than three years ago, but a lot of what she said has stuck with me since then because she was that wonderful. So anyway, this book. The cover is SO cute. I've just noticed that there are actual hearts in the background, and I love it. Just by reading the synopsis, I can tell Things We Know by Heart will give me all the feelings. I can't wait!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Are you as excited for this release as I am? :)
