Waiting On Wednesday [@harperteen @AdamSilvera}

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:


In the tradition of Before I Fall and If I Stay, this tour de force from acclaimed author Adam Silvera, whose debut the New York Times called “profound,” reminds us that there’s no life without death, no love without loss—and that it’s possible to change your whole world in a day.

On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: they’re going to die today. Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news is: there’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure—an unforgettable day that will change both their lives forever.

It is a bit like:

. . . only it's not the end of 'the' world, but their world, well their lives. I am very intrigued by the concept of the Death-Cast and of everyone (maybe everyone, maybe not?) knowing the day they're going to die. I'm curious to find out what that means for Mateo and Rufus.

Then you add in that there's an app for finding a friend for before you die? I want o see what this world is like and what these characters' last day is like.

(Plus, I enjoyed both If I Stay and Before I Fall.)

That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
