WoW 5. Brian James - Life is but a dream.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here at Breaking the spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Life Is But a DreamPages: 234.

Sabrina, an artist, is diagnosed with schizophrenia, and her parents check her into the Wellness Center. There she meets Alec, who is convinced it's the world that's crazy, not the two of them. They are meant to be together; they are special. But when Alec starts to convince Sabrina that her treatment will wipe out everything that makes her creative, she worries that she'll lose hold of her dreams and herself. Should she listen to her doctor? Her decision may have fatal consequences.
The first time I found this book - traveling on Goodreads - I fell in love with the cover. The colors, the title and the sad emotions I feel when I look at the girl. Then, I read the summary and I only thought one thing: I NEED to read this book.

So, what's your pick this week?


  1. I had those same emotions when I first saw Life is But a Dream. I cannot wait to read it!

  7. I have this book but haven't read it yet! I'm not much on the chic lit so I put it off until the last minute, I'd rather be reading my PNR etc...

    I'll be reading it soon since I've finally organized all of my TBR ARC's into a google doc with pub. dates. I review all the books 1-2 weeks before publication date so it's fresher in peoples minds that way. I used to post my review as soon as I got them but found that it was always way before the publication date and people often forgot + a few publishers have asked me to wait.

    Looks like I need to start this one by the weekend!

    Great choice and I hope we both like it :o]

  8. Man, this book sounds like it's going to be emotionally INTENSE! Great pick!

  9. Oh I just got this one today and really look forward to it I just love that cover! Great pick!
