This is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights the upcoming releases we are eagerly waiting for. My WoW this week features a book I randomly stumbled upon on Goodreads First Reads about time travel!
Timebound by Rysa Walker
Release Date: 1 December 2013
Series: The Chronos Files #1
When Kate Pierce-Keller’s grandmother gives her a strange blue medallion and speaks of time travel, sixteen-year-old Kate assumes the old woman is delusional. But it all becomes horrifyingly real when a murder in the past destroys the foundation of Kate’s present-day life. Suddenly, that medallion is the only thing protecting Kate from blinking out of existence.
Kate learns that the 1893 killing is part of something much more sinister, and Kate’s genetic ability to time-travel makes her the only one who can stop him. Risking everything, she travels to the Chicago World’s Fair to try to prevent the killing and the chain of events that follows.
Changing the timeline comes with a personal cost, however—if Kate succeeds, the boy she loves will have no memory of her existence. And regardless of her motives, does she have the right to manipulate the fate of the entire world.
I’m a sucker for anything time travel, especially when it’s developed well and there are good reviews. I stumbled upon this book on the Goodreads First Reads section and was immediately drawn to the time travel theme and how it’s a multi-award winner. Seems like everyone else has already discovered this amazing book with heaps of my Goodreads already reviewing it!
What book releases are you are eagerly waiting on?
