Waiting on Wednesday


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis. Here's the synopsis:

Everyone has a theory about what’s wrong with Nolan. He has hallucinations. He has seizures. He has an overactive imagination. Or is what Nolan sees whenever he closes his eyes impossibly, fantastically real?

Nolan longs for a life uninterrupted. Every single time he blinks, he’s transported into the mind of Amara, a girl in another world. As a mute servant who’s tasked with protecting a renegade princess, Amara lives a life of magic and danger and pain; she’s completely unaware that Nolan can see through her eyes.

Until he becomes more than an observer. Until he learns to control her—and the two of them communicate for the first time. Amara is terrified. Then furious. She’s already spent a lifetime as property and punching bag. The last thing she needs is another force controlling her.

All Amara and Nolan want is to be free of each other. But Nolan’s breakthrough has dangerous consequences. Now, they’ll have to work together to survive . . . and discover the truth about their connection.

I absolutely LOVE the sound of this book and I have a good feeling that I'm going to love it.  I'm very excited about the release and if I could pre order it for kindle, believe me I would have already.  Cannot wait. 

Otherbound is published on 17th June, 2014 with no news at present of a UK release.  To find out more about Corinne Duyvis and her books, please click here to visit her website.

  1. Great choice, I stumbled across Otherbound a while ago and forgot to add it to my wishlist so thanks for choosing it! It sounds completely different to anything I've read recently so can't wait to get my hands on a copy. Hope you enjoy it!

  2. Hi there! Author here. Thanks so much for the interest in OTHERBOUND. I came across this post and just wanted to let you know that the book is slated to come out in the UK on July 1st. You can find out more at the Abrams & Chronicle UK website: http://www.abramsandchronicle.co.uk/books/young-adult/9781419709289-otherbound

    It'll be the same edition as in the US, but they have solid UK distribution, so you should be able to find/order it anywhere.

    I hope that's helpful, and thanks again!
