It's time for "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited. So here's the next yet-to-be-published YA from the top of my TBR list!
A SONG TO TAKE THE WORLD APART
Releases 13 September 2016 from Knopf Books
Hanging out with Chris was supposed to make Lorelei’s life normal. He’s cooler, he’s older, and he’s in a band, which means he can teach her about the music that was forbidden in her house growing up. Her grandmother told her when she was little that she was never allowed to sing, but listening to someone else do it is harmless—right?
The more she listens, though, the more keenly she can feel her own voice locked up in her throat, and how she longs to use it. As she starts exploring the power her grandmother never wanted her to discover, influencing Chris and everyone around her, the foundations of Lorelei’s life start to crumble. There’s a reason the women in her family never want to talk about what their voices can do.
And there's a reason Lorelei can’t seem to stop herself from singing anyway.

Magical realism has had a pretty decent hold on the market lately, and this one seems like one that's up my alley. Hints of a siren, right? And a love story? I'm on board for that.
See you guys Saturday! *Post removed*
