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 Soulmates by Holly Bourne. Here's the synopsis:

Every so often, two people are born who are the perfect matches for each other. Soulmates. But while the odds of this happening are about as likely as being struck by lightning, when these people do meet and fall in love…thunderstorms, lightning strikes and lashings of rain are only the beginning of their problems.

Enter Poppy, the 17-year-old cynic with a serious addiction to banana milk, and Noah, the heart-throb guitarist; residents of mediocre Middletown, sometime students, and…soulmates.

After a chance meeting at a local band night, Poppy and Noah find themselves swept up in a whirlwind romance unlike anything they’ve ever experienced before. But with a secret international agency preparing to separate them, a trail of destruction rumbling in their wake, (and a looming psychology coursework deadline), they are left with an impossible choice between the end of the world, or a life without love…

Let me tell you that I am DYING to read this book.  It sorta reminds me of Hancock (the movie with Will Smith) where Greek Gods and Goddesses who are soulmates cannot be together otherwise their powers don't work and they become mortal.  I don't know, maybe it's just me that's making that comparison.  REGARDLESS, I really want to read this book, like now!

Soulmates is published on 1st September, 2013. 


  1. It sounds really interesting but I hope there won't be insta-love as soulmate themed books tend to have.

    1. It's a great read and there is no insta-love like you're thinking, which is unusual given the title ;)

  2. This sounds so epic, swoonworthy, and romantic! I definitely want to learn more.

  3. Soulmates soulmates soul mates <3 <3 <3 that is all :)
