Waiting on Wednesday (23): Pivot Point

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Pivot Point by Kasie West
Release Date: February 12th 2013 by HarperTeen
Format: Hardcover


Goodreads Summary:
Reminiscent of the movie Sliding Doors, Pivot Point is about a girl who has the power to Search alternate futures. When faced with a life changing decision, she lives out six weeks of two different lives (in alternating chapters), both holding the potential for love and loss, and must ultimately choose which path she is willing to live through.



 Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
 1. The cover. Not gonna lie. I have a huge case of coverlove with this one. I love the hairstyle the girl is rocking on this cover, not everyone can pull off such blunt bangs and she does it well, it has to be said, haha. I also like how the girl on this cover seems to be looking at a reflection of herself and how the image is shattering (might be indicative of a split in time or personality) - either way, I think it's cool.

2. The synopsis. Gotta love time travel. It can lend itself to so many intricate situations. Looking forward to learning about how the girl in this book can time travel and how she is gonna live her two different lives. Should be interesting.


 What do you guys think? :)

    Thank you so much for spotlighting my book! That's so fun for me. It's still very surreal. I hope you enjoy it! I think the cover is gorgeous. I was so excited when my editor showed it to me. And I totally agree that this model rocks those bangs. :)

  10. Sounds excellent! I haven't seen Sliding Doors but I love the concept. I loved the Frasier Sliding Doors episode! So weird to think about how different your life can be with simple changes. So curious what big life change she has and how that will affect her life depending on what choice she makes! Thanks for stopping by!

Ohhh, I had no idea that this one was about time travel!! *adds to TBR pile* I've only read a few books with this premise before but I think every single one has been really cool to read -- and always makes me wish that I could time travel too LOL x) But that cover really IS gorgeous! I love the blurriness of the one side :)
