Waiting on Wednesday is hosted each week by Breaking the Spine and lets us spotlight a book that we are eagerly awaiting the release of. This week I’ve chosen:
Genre: Science-Fiction/ Time Travel
Publisher: Egmont USA
Expected Publication Date: July 9, 2013
Summary (from Goodreads): The stakes have risen even higher in this third book in the Hourglass series.
The Hourglass is a secret organization focused on the study of manipulating time, and its members — many of them teenagers -have uncanny abilities to make time work for them in mysterious ways. Inherent in these powers is a responsibility to take great care, because altering one small moment can have devastating consequences for the past, present, and future. But some time travelers are not exactly honorable, and sometimes unsavory deals must be struck to maintain order.
With the Infinityglass (central to understanding and harnessing the time gene) at large, the hunt is on to find it before someone else does.
But the Hourglass has an advantage. Lily, who has the ability to locate anything lost, has determined that the Infinityglass isn’t an object. It’s a person. And the Hourglass must find him or her first. But where do you start searching for the very key to time when every second could be the last?
Have you guys read Hourglass and Timepiece yet? No?! You should go do it. This is an awesome time travel series with romance and great characters and suspense and whit. And Infinityglass is the final book in the trilogy and it comes out in July. Until it does, I’ll be waiting for it. I can’t wait to find out what will happen with Lily and Kaleb and Emerson and Michael and all of the other characters involved with The Hourglass. And in case you were wondering, the time travel and timelines are done really well in this series. I think I’ll need to do a quick reread of the first two books before starting this one, though. It will have been more than a year since I read the others. So if you haven’t read them at all yet, there’s still plenty of time!
What book are you looking forward to this week? Let me know in the comments!
