Waiting on Wednesday (82)

Good Morning (or whatever time it happens to be that you're visiting!) It's Wednesday and you know what that means!! Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that highlights the books that we are most anxiously awaiting!

This week my WoW is...

3:59 by Gretchen McNeil
Release Date: September 17th, 2013

Here's the summary from Goodreads: Josie Byrne's life is spiraling out of control. Her parents are divorcing, her boyfriend Nick has grown distant, and her physics teacher has it in for her. When she's betrayed by the two people she trusts most, Josie thinks things can't get worse. Until she starts having dreams about a girl named Jo. Every night at the same time—3:59 a.m. Jo's life is everything Josie wants: she's popular, her parents are happily married, and Nick adores her. It all seems real, but they're just dreams, right? Josie thinks so, until she wakes one night to a shadowy image of herself in the bedroom mirror – Jo. Josie and Jo realize that they are doppelgängers living in parallel universes that overlap every twelve hours at exactly 3:59. Fascinated by Jo's perfect world, Josie jumps at the chance to jump through the portal and switch places for a day. But Jo’s world is far from perfect. Not only is Nick not Jo's boyfriend, he hates her. Jo's mom is missing, possibly insane. And at night, shadowy creatures feed on human flesh. By the end of the day, Josie is desperate to return to her own life. But there’s a problem: Jo has sealed the portal, trapping Josie in this dangerous world. Can she figure out a way home before it’s too late?

I think Gretchen McNeil is made of awesome. If she writes it, I'll read it. So, that's pretty much all I have to say about that. What are you guys waiting on this summery Wednesday? On a side note...Fall is creeping up on us. Well, maybe not us here in Texas, since we're still having triple digit temps, and random summer t-storms that pop up out of no where and cause the power to go out. Repeatedly. But anyway, is anyone getting that warm fuzzy that comes along with Autumn?
