Waiting on Wednesday #4

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that features upcoming releases that we are waiting in anticipation for!

Here is this weeks pick: 

Title: After Eden
Author: Helen Douglas
Publication: November 7, 2013
Eden Anfield loves puzzles, so when mysterious new boy Ryan Westland shows up at her school she's hooked. On the face of it, he's a typical American teenager. So why doesn't he recognise pizza? And how come he hasn't heard of Hitler? What puzzles Eden the most, however, is the interest he's taking in her. 

As Eden starts to fall in love with Ryan, she begins to unravel his secret. Her breakthrough comes one rainy afternoon when she stumbles across a book in Ryan's bedroom - a biography of her best friend - written over fifty years in the future. Confronting Ryan, she discovers that he is there with one unbelievably important purpose ... and she might just have destroyed his only chance of success.

My Thoughts: The cover is was first drew me to this book. It is so beautiful. I really love covers with night skies and stars on them.  I've never really read any time travel novels because they never really interested me much. After Eden just sounds so interesting that I can't help but want to read it! I cannot wait!


  1. I have this on my waiting list too. I hope it will be good.

    I hope you'll enjoy it! :)

  4. Great pick. Can't wait to read this either. Thanks for sharing :)

    Happy Wednesday!

  5. This book is everywhere- I much prefer this summary, since it keeps some of the big surprises at bay. I think I might just have to get involved :-) it sounds fun

  6. I absolutely love the cover, too. I managed to snag an early copy, and it just wasn't for me. I hope you enjoy it though!

  9. Awesome pick! I too have been seeing mixed reviews... I cannot wait to hear your thoughts. I love the synopsis and cover though! I really hope you enjoy the book :D
