Waiting On Wednesday #5 Split Second

***"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.***

So what book am I anxiously awaiting to read?
...Split Second By Kasie West

 Life can change in a split second.

Addie hardly recognizes her life since her parents divorced. Her boyfriend used her. Her best friend betrayed her. She can’t believe this is the future she chose. On top of that, her ability is acting up. She’s always been able to Search the future when presented with a choice. Now she can manipulate and slow down time, too . . . but not without a price.

When Addie’s dad invites her to spend her winter break with him, she jumps at the chance to escape into the Norm world of Dallas, Texas. There she meets the handsome and achingly familiar Trevor. He’s a virtual stranger to her, so why does her heart do a funny flip every time she sees him? But after witnessing secrets that were supposed to stay hidden, Trevor quickly seems more suspicious of Addie than interested in her. And she has an inexplicable desire to change that.

Meanwhile, her best friend, Laila, has a secret of her own: she can restore Addie’s memories . . . once she learns how. But there are powerful people who don’t want to see this happen. Desperate, Laila tries to manipulate Connor, a brooding bad boy from school—but he seems to be the only boy in the Compound immune to her charms. And the only one who can help her.
As Addie and Laila frantically attempt to retrieve the lost memories, Addie must piece together a world she thought she knew before she loses the love she nearly forgot . . . and a future that could change everything.

Expected publication: February 11th 2013 

I enjoyed Pivot Point a lot, more than I thought I would actually. February 11, 2014 cannot arrive quickly enough for the sequel Split Second. I am excited and anxious to see how everything plays out in this novel.


  1. I actually got an ARC of Pivot Point, back before it was released, and I haven't read it! I'm hoping to rectify that soon, so I can read this one! :D

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment! I'm already following you. I know you're a new blogger - welcome! Think about setting up a few other ways for people to follow you, like Feedburner, Bloglovin, or Linky :)

  2. These do sound great and I've heard great things about Pivot Point. Enjoy!

  3. I got an ARC of Pivot Point, but it seemed like a contemporary novel, and that's not exactly my favorite genre :)

    But this book sounds really interesting. I just might read Pivot Point and check out this one.

    Great Pick!

    1. I also meant to tell you that you should set up more ways for people to follow you. Set up Feedburner for email, Bloglovin', Twitter, Facebook, Linky... just some examples, and they are all easy to set up. And you might want to think about removing the Captcha on comments to make it easier for your followers.

  5. I loved Pivot Point and hope you do too.
    Hope you get to read it soon!
