Waiting on Wednesday (79)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"The Future of Us"
by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
Release Date: Nov 1, 2011

The following description is from goodreads.com:

It's 1996, and less than half of all American high school students have ever used the Internet.

Emma just got her first computer and an America Online CD-ROM.

Josh is her best friend. They power up and log on--and discover themselves on Facebook, fifteen years in the future.

Everybody wonders what their Destiny will be. Josh and Emma are about to find out.

This is one of the most interesting concepts I've heard about in a long time! And two great YA authors collaborated to write it!

What are you waiting for this week???


  1. Hmmm VERY interesting! I saw this title on Goodreads but didn't know what it was about.


  2. I wanna read this one too.
    Generally I like Carolyn's books, though I admit I didn't like the one by Jay Asher (13 Reasons Why), so I hope I can like this one.

    Great pick! and I love the cover.

  3. I am so looking forward to this! I haven't read either of the authors other books, but the idea behind this one is so intriguing.

  4. Wow! This is absolutely fabulous. I am adding it to my TBR list immediately. I remember when I got my AOL CD and signed on for the first time. Thanks for sharing this one.

  5. I am so excited for this book! Jay Asher is amazing and the plot sounds awesome! Great pick!

    My WoW: http://astorytolove.blogspot.com/2011/08/waiting-on-wednesday-glow.html

  6. I love this concept & definitely a great team of authors. I wonder if those that remember those old days will take away something different from the book then the teens who never lived through it?!

  7. I love the sound of this one because I, as part of the technological generation, can't even imagine life without internet! So I can't wait to see how these 90s teens react to stuff like Facebook. Great pick!

  8. Ooo I've been wanting this one since I saw it on Tales of Whimsy. My Wednesday wait is "Touch of Frost"

  9. Woah, that is so crazy!! I would have never thought of that as an idea. That is so great! Nice pick!

    Here's my WoW!

  10. This one sounds so unique! I love the cover too - it looks old-schooled :D Great pick!

    Here's my WoW

  11. A lot of people are talking about this one recently. It does look like a good book but I'm not a fan of the cover. The concept though of the story taking place before the internet is a great idea. I hope you enjoy the book once you are able to get a copy.

    Happy reading!

  12. I haven't read a Mackler book, but I adored Jay Asher's 13RW. I am so excited for this one!! :D

  13. I'm excited for this one too! I also remember getting that first AOL CD and installing it on the computer - okay, now I'm feeling old...

    Great pick :)

  14. I got this one at BEA. I hope to get to it soon. I loved 13 Reasons Why.


Thanks so much for your lovely comments!
