Waiting on Wednesday (8)

Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver
*March 2nd, 2010 HarperCollins
What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she had ever imagined.

This week's pick's premise sounds great, doesn't it? Kind of TOK-esque, which is nice (going through withdrawl slightly, as the course ended last semester). It also kind of reminds me of that one episode of Supernatural... and the cover does seem to slightly resemble that of Anna Jarzab's All Unquiet Things.

The synopsis sounds very open-ended, so there's definitely a fair amount of curiosity to see just how Oliver spins this yarn. Especially since thus far, Before I Fall has received rave reviews.

But now that you've seen my pick, what are you waiting on, this Wednesday?
