Waiting on Wednesday # 90 - Grasping at Eternity by Karen Amanda Hooper

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Leave it to Maryah Woodsen to break the one rule that will screw up eternity: Never erase your memories.

Before entering this life, Maryah did the unthinkable—she erased. Now, at seventeen years old, she’s clueless that her new adoptive family has known her for centuries, that they are perpetually reincarnated souls, and that they have supernatural abilities. Oh, and she's supposed to love (not despise) Nathan, the green-eyed daredevil who saved her life.

Nathan is convinced his family’s plan to spark Maryah's memory is hopeless, but his love for her is undying. After spending (and remembering) so many lifetimes together, being around an empty version of his soulmate is heart shattering. He hates acting like a stalker, but has no choice because the evil outcast who murdered Maryah in their last lifetime is still after her.

While Maryah’s hunter inches closer, she and Nathan make assumptions and hide secrets that rip them further apart. Maryah has to believe in the magic within her, Nathan must have faith in the power of their love, and both need to grasp onto the truth before they lose each other forever—and discover just how lonely eternity can be.

X-MEN meets MY NAME IS MEMORY in Karen Amanda Hooper’s latest young adult release. Coming in May of 2012.
I really like the cover :)

    Our WoW is at Book Sake. –Jessica

  2. I came across this one a few days ago, and I admit, I checked into it because of that gorgeous cover! I love the teal colours and the peacock feathers :D

    The book sounds really interesting. Accidentally erasing your memories? Whoops! But now you don't know your family and partner? EEK not good! I can't wait to see some reviews of this book.

    My Waiting on Wednesday pick:

  3. That's certainly an interesting premise. I like the idea of trying to come back from memory loss, but the bit about a boy 'stalking' makes me very wary. Nice pick.
