Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It features each blogger's most anticipated books. This week, my pick is The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna.


"Eva’s life is not her own. She is a creation, an abomination—an echo. Made by the Weavers as a copy of someone else, she is expected to replace a girl named Amarra, her “other”, if she ever died. Eva studies what Amarra does, what she eats, what it’s like to kiss her boyfriend, Ray. So when Amarra is killed in a car crash, Eva should be ready.

But fifteen years of studying never prepared her for this.

Now she must abandon everything she’s ever known—the guardians who raised her, the boy she’s forbidden to love—to move to India and convince the world that Amarra is still alive."

Why I Can't Wait: Love the cover! It's simple yet a bit eerie. I think the summary speaks for itself. I love the concept of echos and replacing someone's life if they die. I love that there's forbidden love and the "twist" of having to find Amarra instead of just replacing her. I love it all! Giggidy!

Expected publication: August 28th 2012 by Balzer + Bray

  7. Yep, agreed - the cover is a bit eerie. Is there something wrong with me for liking that? Also, seeing a new trend in books... silhouettes are being used a lot and superimposed with a bunch of images or overlays. Hmmm....
