Waiting on Wednesday 10/27/21

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

The Impossible Us by Sarah Lotz (March 22, 2022 by Ace Books)

I was very excited to find out about The Impossible Us by Sarah Lotz, as I’m a huge fan of her work. I’ve mostly read her horror and thriller though, so this one, described as a parallel world romance, seems quite bit different. Looking forward to checking it out!

“In this funny and poignant novel, two strangers learn that their soul mate might be both as close as breath and as distant as a star, from British Fantasy Award recipient Sarah Lotz.

Bee thinks she has everything: a successful business repurposing wedding dresses, and friends who love and support her. She’s given up on finding love, but that’s fine. There’s always Tinder. Nick thinks he has nothing: his writing career has stalled after early promise and his marriage is on the rocks, but that’s fine. There’s always gin. So when one of Nick’s emails, a viciously funny screed intended for a non-paying client, accidentally pings into Bee’s inbox, they decide to keep the conversation going. After all, they never have to meet.

But the more they get to know each other, the more Bee and Nick realize they want to. They both notice strange pop culture or political references that crop up in their correspondence, but nothing odd enough to stop Bee and Nick for falling hard for each other. But when their efforts to meet in real life fail spectacularly, Bee and Nick discover that they’re actually living in near-identical but parallel worlds. With a universe between them, Bee and Nick will discover how far they’ll go to beat impossible odds.”

  1. Parallel worlds stories can be fun and have so much potential. Though different, it reminds me of the anime movie, Your Name, though that one was two people in different times instead of parallel worlds. Beautiful story if you haven’t seen it (as is everything by that writer/director, he’s one of my favorites).

  2. I saw this the other day and was thinking how different it sounds from her other books! The story immediately reminded me of the movie The Lake House.

  3. I like the sound of this one. And this little gem from the synopsis “There’s always gin” lol

    But honestly though they correspond and then discover they’re in parallel worlds? LOVE that
