Waiting on Wednesday: What's Left of Me

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on. 

Title: What's Left of Me
Author: Kat Zhang
Publisher: HarperTeen
Date of Release: September 18, 2012 

Goodreads Description: Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else - two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance. But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren’t they settling? Why isn’t one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn’t ... For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she’s still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable - hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet ... for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.

Why am I waiting? It's got an awesomely original premise! Sharing your body with someone else sounds like it would be both cool and kind of creepy.

  1. I got to read this one from Edelweiss and I really loved the concept, too. I was worried that I was going to get confused while reading the two separate protagonists in one body and voice, but the author did a really great job at keeping it clear cut.

  11. I'm really excited for this one too Z! It reminds me a bit of Stephenie Meyers The Host (only without the aliens) and I absolutely adored that book. And we don't have too much longer to wait, so extra bonus there!

  19. After Alyson Noel, I'm a little wary about "soul" themed books. I hope you enjoy this though.
