Waiting on Wednesday (27)

Waiting on Wednesday
is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases
upcoming releases that people are very much anticipating.

Every once in awhile, I wait on a book that I already have a copy of. That's the case today. I first heard about this book when I got it at ALA Midwinter, and since then I've been wanting to dive into it. It's a shorter read, but the synopsis makes it sound amazing. Therefore, I wanted to share it with everyone else!

Title: The Loop

Ben and Maggie have met, fallen in love, and died together countless times. Over the course of two pivotal days—both the best and worst of their lives—they struggle again and again to resist the pull of fate and the force of time itself. With each failure, they return to the beginning of their end, a wild road trip that brings them to the scene of their own murders and into the hands of the man destined to kill them.

As time circles back on itself, events become more deeply ingrained, more inescapable for the two kids trapped inside the loop. The closer they come to breaking out, the tighter fate’s clutches seem to grip them. They devise a desperate plan to break free and survive the days ahead, but what if Ben and Maggie’s only shot at not dying is surviving apart?

What book can't you wait to have this week? 


  1. Wow, I hadn't heard of this one before but it sounds so interesting! Definitely going to keep an eye out for it once it's released. :) Loving the cover too.

    my WoW :)

  2. Whoa, in a way it kinda sounds like "Memento". You know, the Danny Boyle movie! I think I like the summary here! Can't wait to see what you think!

    My WoW

  3. I didn't realize this one wasn't out yet. It was on Netgalley so long ago! I hope you enjoy it.

    My WOW

  4. I had not heard of this one but it sounds very interesting. This is being added to my TBR list!


  5. Somehow I had not heard of this book which is a travesty as it looks just like my kind of book. I love time travel, parallel lives, alternate reality kind of books AND Hyperion is one of my fave publishers so this is a huge win!

  6. First time hearing about this book and it sounds good! Thanks for sharing Cricket@ Little Library Muse My Wow
