Waiting on Wednesday - 46

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill Breaking the Spine for bloggers and readers to get excited about upcoming books.

The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler

It's 1996, and less than half of all American high school students have ever used the Internet.

Emma just got her first computer and an America Online CD-ROM.

Josh is her best friend. They power up and log on--and discover themselves on Facebook, fifteen years in the future.

Everybody wonders what their Destiny will be. Josh and Emma are about to find out. (from GoodReads)


I think The Future of Us sounds so good! I've always wondered what people of the (near) past would think of the internet and all our social networking sites. Plus, not too many books are set in the 90s, so I think it would be cool to read about that (even though I was alive during that time haha). The Future of Us will be released on November 21, 2011.

I'm really excited for this book! I love Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. It's actually sitting on my desk right next to me.

I want to read this one too! At the end of 13 Reasons (paperback) it has a two page preview of this book. Sounds really good!

Funny how Jay Asher went from tapes to the future, with Facebook. Lol



My WoW.
