Waiting On Wednesday

After reading Department of Lost & Found and loving it, I am eager to read Allison Winn Scotch's new novel, The One That I Want!

What if you woke up one day to all your dreams coming true...but those dreams were more like nightmares?

illy Farmer is thirty-two years old and has the perfect life she always dreamed of: married to her high school sweetheart, working as a school guidance counselor, trying for a baby. Perfect.

But one sweltering afternoon at the local fair, everything changes. Tilly wanders into a fortune teller's tent and meets an old childhood friend, who offers her more than just a reading. "I'm giving you the gift of clarity," her friend says. "It's what I always through you needed." And soon enough, Tilly starts seeing things: her alcoholic father relapsing, staggering out of a bar with his car keys in hand; her husband uprooting their happy, stable life, a packed U-Haul in their driveway. And even more disturbing, these visions start coming true. Suddenly Tilly's perfect life, so meticulously mapped out, seems to be crumbling around her. And as she furiously races to keep up with - and hopefully change - her destiny, she faces the question: Which life does she want? The one she's carefully nursed for decades, or the one she never considered possible?

What if you could see into the future? Would you want to know what fate has in store?

Interesting premise. Might be a good reason to stay away from fortune tellers.

Cool! Check out what I'm waiting for here

Oh, that sounds like one of those "be careful what you wish for" things. I like this author, so it's going on my list.

Here's mine:

Great pick, very intriguing. I don't think I'd want to know what my future had in store. My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

Hmm I think I will have to add this to my wishlist. It sounds really good.

Kris (Voracious YAppetite) said...

This book sounds really good. I like books that have an element of magic without being an actual fantasy book. Great pick!

Stephanie said...

The premise sounds intriguing, and I really liked Time of My Life. Great choice!

Darlene said...

Great pick! I'd love to read her newest novel!
