Waiting on Wednesday (22)

waiting on wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine talking about upcoming book released we are excited for.

My choice this week is:

The Taking

The Taking by Kimberly Derting

Release Date: 29th April 2014

From Goodreads:

“When sixteen-year-old Kyra Agnew wakes up behind a Dumpster at the Gas ’n’ Sip, she has no memory of how she got there. With a terrible headache and a major case of déjà vu, she heads home only to discover that five years have passed . . . yet she hasn’t aged a day. 

Everything else about Kyra’s old life is different. Her parents are divorced, her boyfriend, Austin, is in college and dating her best friend, and her dad has changed from an uptight neat-freak to a drunken conspiracy theorist who blames her five-year disappearance on little green men. 

Confused and lost, Kyra isn’t sure how to move forward unless she uncovers the truth. With Austin gone, she turns to Tyler, Austin’s annoying kid brother, who is now seventeen and who she has a sudden undeniable attraction to. As Tyler and Kyra retrace her steps from the fateful night of her disappearance, they discover strange phenomena that no one can explain, and they begin to wonder if Kyra’s father is not as crazy as he seems. There are others like her who have been taken . . . and returned. Kyra races to find an explanation and reclaim the life she once had, but what if the life she wants back is not her own?”

WOW, i cannot wait for this release. A five year disappearance, no age changes and possible aliens?? I haven’t really seen this type of book around recently and cannot wait to read something a bit different compared to the current trend of more of the same. Am definitely keeping my eye out for this one!

What are your picks for this week?

    1. I haven’t read that series but have heard great things about it! Thanks for stopping by and Sorry for the late reply!

  1. Wow, great concept. I like the idea that her dad isn’t as crazy as he seems…my only question is, if Tyler is the “kid brother” of her ex-boyfriend and he’s seventeen…Kyra was 11 when she was dating Austin…which barely counts as actual dating. AND that means that Austin was, like, 15 when he was dating 11-year old Kyra? What fifteen year old dates an eleven year old? WHAT?!

    Anyway…=P I think I’m thinking too much.

    1. I’m taking it to mean that she was 16, not 11 that would be too creepy! Good point though, definitely want it clarified!

  2. I’ve read the first two books of the pledge trilogy and that’s pretty much what I’ve read from Kimberly. Maybe I’d give this a go, it sounds interesting enough for a para book. My WoW

    1. I’ve heard such great things about the Pledge trilogy and keep meaning to pick it up. I definitely need to read something by this author soon! Sorry for the late reply.
