Can't Wait Wednesday #20: Otherworld by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.  This week my pick is what looks to be a neat new series that I found as part of a BEA promotion through a link in my daily Shelf Awareness email newsletter.  I'm intrigued to find out how these two authors will work together.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

The company says Otherworld is amazing—like nothing you’ve ever seen before. They say it’s addictive—that you’ll want to stay forever. They promise Otherworld will make all your dreams come true.

Simon thought Otherworld was a game. Turns out he knew nothing. Otherworld is the next phase of reality. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted.

And it’s about to change humanity forever.
Welcome to the. No one could have seen it coming.








So, what do you think?  Does it sound like something you'd like to read?  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  1. What a great cover. Isn't this the same team that wrote the middle grade "Nightmares" books? He's an actor right? Guess I need to go to Goodreads and look this one up instead of asking you 20 questions. Great pick though!

    1. It did sound like a good MG, although I rarely read that level. So I'm excited for a YA story. Thanks for visiting!
