Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers share upcoming releases they're looking forward to. 

This week's pick is:
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Expected Publication Date: September 1st, 2015
Goodreads / Preorder: Amazon - Barnes and Noble - The Book Depository

This innovative, heartfelt debut novel tells the story of a girl who’s literally allergic to the outside world. When a new family moves in next door, she begins a complicated romance that challenges everything she’s ever known. The narrative unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, texts, charts, lists, illustrations, and more.

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster. 

First off, I am obsessed with that cover. It is so cool. Second, I've recently heard a wave of amazing things about this book, so I'm even more excited to read it now. I can't wait for this to release. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Let me know!
