The Time Will Come #38

The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books For Company, where we can spotlight those books that we've had sitting on our shelves for too long. Books that we really want to read but never seem to get around to.
To join in write your own TWC post, drop by Jodie's blog to add your post to the linky, and visit the other blogs.

I won Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz from Amber over at Down The Rabbit Hole a few months ago, and I still really want to read it, but I have so many books lined up to read in front of it, I don't know when I'll get the chance. I still think this sounds like a great book though and I'm sure I'll get round to it... one day!


Synopsis from Goodreads:
Life hasn't been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Connor, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But her new posh Upper East Side prep school? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she's irresistibly drawn to — Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks, who is also the richest kid in school.

Even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can't stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps shatter whenever she walks by, and Emma's been having the oddest dreams. Visions of herself in past lives — visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else…





Also, I love this cover! It feels very dream-like. You can't see it in the picture but the broken glass shards are all shiny!

  4. I've never seen this meme, but I have a whole bookcase full of those books. I'll get to them and Spellbound sits there on one of them!
