Wishlist Wednesday [#24]

I’ve got to admit – I do love this half of Wednesday when I get to frolic around my Wishlist and revisit some of the books that have been on it for an extremely long time. Sometimes I feel like the longer you have a book on a wishlist the more justified you feel when you buy it. It’s like some sort of forbidden romance, Romeo and Juliet if one of them were a book, if you will. Ah well. I do love doing these posts though because I feel like I balance my day out fangirling about a book that’s coming out in the future, and then about one that came out ages ago and isn’t talked about anymore. It’s like time-travelling (oh shush, let me dream).

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted @ Pen to Paper where we get to feature a book that’s been on our wishlist for a long time that we want to buy/read! I have a hugely extensive list that I keep updated over on The Book Depository so I’m never short of books that I’m wishing on.

Where do I make my lists? First and foremost I use my “sound good” shelf on Goodreads where I basically keep track of all the books I’ve encountered that tickle my fancy. BUT, The Book Depository has my most concise list of all the books that I so dearly want to throw my money at and look at one my shelf.


 This week I’m wishing on . . .

Tandem
by Anna Jarzab

ADD IT ON GOODREADS

Everything repeats.
You. Your best friend. Every person you know.
Many worlds. Many lives–infinite possibilities.
Welcome to the multiverse.

Sixteen-year-old Sasha Lawson has only ever known one small, ordinary life. When she was young, she loved her grandfather’s stories of parallel worlds inhabited by girls who looked like her but led totally different lives. Sasha never believed such worlds were real–until now, when she finds herself thrust into one against her will.
To prevent imminent war, Sasha must slip into the life of an alternate version of herself, a princess who has vanished on the eve of her arranged marriage. If Sasha succeeds in fooling everyone, she will be returned home; if she fails, she’ll be trapped in another girl’s life forever. As time runs out, Sasha finds herself torn between two worlds, two lives, and two young men vying for her love–one who knows her secret, and one who thinks she’s someone she’s not.
The first book in the Many-Worlds Trilogy, Tandem is a riveting saga of love and betrayal set in parallel universes in which nothing–and no one–is what it seems.

This book is pretty much everything I could ever want a book to be. I feel like this year I’ve been on a real parallel universe-bender. Not that I’ve read heaps of those books – no, I’ve just thought about them a lot. I’m going to blame Claudia Gray and that spectacular piece of work called A Thousand Pieces of You. But I digress.

The fact that we’re getting: a) unintentional dive into a parallel world; b) AN IMMINENT WAR; c) an accidental princess; d) TIME THAT IS RUNNING OUT; e) a love triangle with extra points; f) and a secret – can only mean that this book is going to be fabulous, right? Rereading this blurb now has me questioning why on earth I don’t just buy this book. I think that Jarzab may have just gone through and put in all the good things into this book to completely hook people like myself. *flails*

Surely I’m not the only one here who thinks this sounds marvellous? Why on earth aren’t people raving about this one more?! Also, that cover . . .
