Waiting on Wednesday #58

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

My pick this week is:

Title: Heartbeat
Genre: contemporary
Audience:  YA
Author: Elizabeth Scott
Release date: January 28th, 2014
Publisher:  Harlequin Teen


Life. Death. And...Love?

Emma would give anything to talk to her mother one last time. Tell her about her slipping grades, her anger with her stepfather, and the boy with the bad reputation who might be the only one Emma can be herself with.

But Emma can't tell her mother anything. Because her mother is brain-dead and being kept alive by machines for the baby growing inside her.

Meeting bad-boy Caleb Harrison wouldn't have interested Old Emma. But New Emma-the one who exists in a fog of grief, who no longer cares about school, whose only social outlet is her best friend Olivia-New Emma is startled by the connection she and Caleb forge.

Feeling her own heart beat again wakes Emma from the grief that has grayed her existence. Is there hope for life after death-and maybe, for love?
 Why I want to read it:

First of all, I already read it and I feel lucky. I haven't written my review yet, but I can tell you the book deserves 5 stars. It's full of emotion, the romance develops over time and the characters are incredibly deep and realistic.

So how about you? What amazing book are you waiting on this week?
