Hourglass
by Myra McEntire

Goodreads synopsis:
One hour to rewrite the past . . . 

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn't there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents' death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She's tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson's willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may also change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he's around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?
Okay, so technically I'm cheating on this week's choice, seeing it is soon to be on my to-read mountain, and no longer on my wishlist (I ordered myself a copy on Sunday). But I'm allowed to cheat, because I'm just so damn excited about getting hold of my copy! This has been on my wishlist, probably for around a year now, and I have just let it sit there. However, on Sunday, I was at a place called Warhammer World (for my brother's birthday, and the fact that I agreed to go is definite proof that I love him), and very bored, so of course, I was browsing Goodreads, and a review for this book came up. The review was a 5 star one. It took no more persuasion that this!
I'm very intrigued by this novel, and I can't wait to read it.

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

I've seen this book mentioned a few times and I recall that amazing cover which really makes you look twice! It sounds really good so I definitely need to look this one up!

Plus, your allowed to cheat! It is your meme after all :P And I must admit I keep running out of books for this meme because I keep buying what is on my wishlist! But luckily I was able to come up with a new one!

Oooh, this sounds really interesting! I've seen it a couple of times, but this is the first time I've read the synopsis, and now I really want it!
Hope you enjoy it when you read it! :)

I have heard a lot of great things about Hourglass. I have had it sitting in my reader for a long while. It was one of those that went on sale and I couldn't resist but have not gotten too.
I hope that you love it when you get to read it. Sounds like it will be soon!

I've had this book on my wishlist for ages now and can't wait to get it. When I wasn't on my book ban, i kept adding it to my basket but for some reason never got round to going through with it and buying . Hope you enjoy it :) I love expecting books in the post although my postman hates me! ;) x

Ha, I also have this book sitting for too much long time on my shelf, just need a right moment to read it (I get easily distracted with another books, that's all ;p).
Hope you (and I) would read this book really soon. Great choice! ^^

I've heard so many great things about this book that it encouraged me to buy it too. But it has been next up on my to-read mountain for months and I can't believe I still haven't read it! It does look amazing though- hope we both get to read it soon!

Sunny Duvall said...

Oh, this sounds great! I want to know how you like it :)

Ohh..now I'm feeling guilty. I've had this book on my Kindle for a while now but I always seem to forget about it...
