"Waiting On" Wednesday (#76) Alive by Chandler Baker


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm picking:

Alive by
Expected publication: June 9th 2015 by Disney-Hyperion

From Goodreads: 

Stella Cross's heart is poisoned.

After years on the transplant waiting list, she's running out of hope that she'll ever see her eighteenth birthday. Then, miraculously, Stella receives the transplant she needs to survive.

Determined to embrace everything she came so close to losing, Stella throws herself into her new life. But her recovery is marred by strange side effects: Nightmares. Hallucinations. A recurring pain that flares every day at the exact same moment. Then Stella meets Levi Zin, the new boy on everyone's radar at her Seattle prep school. Stella has never felt more drawn to anyone in her life, and soon she and Levi are inseparable.

Stella is convinced that Levi is her soul mate. Why else would she literally ache for him when they are apart?

After all, the heart never lies...does it?

Why I'm Waiting:

This looks like it could be either awesome, or insanely creepy.  Either way, I want to check it out.

  3. Haha, I just had the exact same thought after finishing the blurb. x) What's worse, I can't decide right on the spot if I'd want it to be more NA romantic, or YA paranormal-creepy -- but with the hallucinations and nightmares it sounds more like the latter, doesn't it. Oh, this will be interesting! Very nice pick, thanks for sharing!
