Traveler by L.E. DeLano

Traveler (Traveler #1)
Traveler (Traveler #1)
Author: L.E. DeLano
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Jessa has spent her life dreaming of other worlds and writing down stories more interesting than her own, until the day her favorite character, Finn, suddenly shows up and invites her out for coffee. After the requisite nervous breakdown, Jessa learns that she and Finn are Travelers, born with the ability to slide through reflections and dreams into alternate realities. But it’s not all steampunk pirates and fantasy lifestyles…Jessa is dying over and over again, in every reality, and Finn is determined that this time, he’s going to stop it… this Jessa is going to live.

How absolutely gorgeous is that cover?! Omg—I could stare at it for days! And man oh man is the story inside just as captivating! Traveler is filled with suspense, romance, and adventure— it’s an absolute must read!

Traveler follows Jessa, a high schooler, who is living a pretty ordinary life. That is, until the guy of her dreams (literally) appears right in front of her. Dun, dun, duuuuuhn! Now, I know what you’re thinking, “this has been done a million times, Brooke,” “That is so cliché.” But oh my goodness gracious you guys, no. Just no. This story is unlike anything I’ve read before.

Traveler deals with the concept of the multiverse theory; where mirrors are portals into different universes! HOW INSANELY AWESOME IS THAT?! Every place Jessa travels to is utterly unique and fascinating in its own way. I loved how L.E. DeLano depicted each reality. Also, each Jessa herself changes drastically too—from being a goth artist to a ballet dancer to even being completely deaf in one alternative universe. The other really cool thing is that Jessa retains the other Jessa’s memory—so, when she switches with deaf Jessa, she already has all the knowledge of that other Jessa, for example, sign language. It’s all pretty darn awesome. The details of the story are so intricately woven and fast paced yet so easy to follow and just GAH! I loved it.

Jessa is funny and smart and awesome. Her best friend Ben is a total sweetie, loyal to a fault. And Finn, oh Finn….he is mysterious and protective and ALSO A FREAKIN’ PIRATE IN ONE OF THE ALTERNATE UNIVERSES. SUH-WOON.

Traveler is an incredible debut and I am desperate for the next installment. *tosses self at bathroom mirror in hopes of traveling to an alternate universe where book 2 is already published* *smacks face against mirror* Looks like I’ll have to wait :P

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine! And this week i am waiting 
The Disappearances

What if the ordinary things in life suddenly…disappeared?

Aila Quinn’s mother, Juliet, has always been a mystery: vibrant yet guarded, she keeps her secrets beyond Aila’s reach. When Juliet dies, Aila and her younger brother Miles are sent to live in Sterling, a rural town far from home--and the place where Juliet grew up.

Sterling is a place with mysteries of its own. A place where the experiences that weave life together--scents of flowers and food, reflections from mirrors and lakes, even the ability to dream--vanish every seven years.

No one knows what caused these “Disappearances,” or what will slip away next. But Sterling always suspected that Juliet Quinn was somehow responsible--and Aila must bear the brunt of their blame while she follows the chain of literary clues her mother left behind. 

As the next Disappearance nears, Aila begins to unravel the dual mystery of why the Disappearances happen and who her mother truly was. One thing is clear: Sterling isn’t going to hold on to anyone's secrets for long before it starts giving them up.
DOES THIS NOT JUST SOUND SO FREAKIN' AWESOME?? Can't wait for this one, and that cover?! Gorge!! 

What are you waiting on this week?
