Waiting on Wednesday #7


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


What I am waiting for on this Wednesday: Timeless by Alexandra Monir ( January 11th 2011) 

Timeless is number one on my 2011 Debut Author Challenge list, because it sounds like the perfect mix of romance, tragedy and magic. I wonder if there is a possibility for the young man to travel to Michele or if it's just a one-way-diary...

When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor’s world, she is forced to uproot her life and move across the country to New York City, to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she’s never met. In their old Fifth Avenue mansion filled with a century’s worth of family secrets, Michele discovers a diary that hurtles her back in time to the year 1910. There, in the midst of the glamorous Gilded Age, Michele meets the young man with striking blue eyes who has haunted her dreams all her life – a man she always wished was real, but never imagined could actually exist. And she finds herself falling for him, into an otherworldly, time-crossed romance. Michele is soon leading a double life, struggling to balance her contemporary high school world with her escapes into the past. But when she stumbles upon a terrible discovery, she is propelled on a race through history to save the boy she loves – a quest that will determine the fate of both of their lives.

  4. Something different - everyone normally moves away from NYC to little towns. And its historical fiction/fantasy.

  6. I have to admit I didn't like her first books very much. But then I read the new ones, that she wrote more recently and her style has completely changed ... the books were amazing. You really should give it a try. Especially the '' return '' ones. You'll be probably surprised about how better she's gotten over the years.

    I see you're from Germany. We don't live too far away, I currently live in Switzerland.
