Waiting on Wednesday

I know. I know.

I usually reserve Wednesdays for book crushes. I feel like I'm totally cheating.*

BUT I really want to talk about Bumped by Megan McCafferty, because, well...just read the synopsis:

“When a virus makes everyone over the age of eighteen infertile, would-be parents are forced to pay teen girls to conceive and give birth to their children, making teens the most prized members of society.

Sixteen-year-old identical twins Melody and Harmony were separated at birth and had never met until the day Harmony shows up on Melody’s doorstep. Until now, the twins have followed completely opposite paths. Melody has scored an enviable conception contract with a couple called the Jaydens. While they are searching for the perfect partner for Melody to bump with, she is fighting her attraction to her best friend Zen, who is way too short for the job.

Harmony has spent her whole life in religious Goodside, preparing to be a wife and mother. She believes her calling is to bring Melody back to Goodside and convince her that “pregging” for profit is a sin. But Harmony has secrets of her own that she is running from.

When Melody is finally matched with the world-famous, genetically flawless Jondoe, both girls’ lives are changed forever. A case of mistaken identity takes them on a journey neither could have ever imagined, one that makes Melody and Harmony realize they have so much more than just DNA in common.”

Yeah. The awesome. It will be brought. Especially because Publishers Marketplace describes the book as "sharply funny and provocative," and Megan herself describes it as a cross between The Handmaid's Tale and Heathers (that's me!! And also a fan-freaking-TASTIC movie.).

As you all know, I'm a big fan of Megan McCafferty's first series, the Jessica Darling books. And if Bumped is even half as good (and I suspect it will be even better...I mean, it's dystopia! And the cover has pink on it!) we're all in for a treat.

Bumped will be released way too late for my lack of patience on April 26. I'm definitely counting down the days... 

*Full disclosure: By blogging about this, I'm entering for a chance to win an ARC. And I am so freaking PUMPED for this book I couldn't turn this chance down. I mean it doesn't come out until APRIL. That's like 6 months away!! Way, way too long. So that's really the reason why you don't get a Book-Crush post today. Because I'm greedy and want an ARC. Also, hopefully Megan is reading this RIGHT NOW and can feel my enthusiasm, but I didn't link it on her Facebook because I know she Google-blogs herself. Because she's awesome. So, i just want to say, "Hi Megan! You rock my face off."


  1. I am SO excited!! I don't even care what its's Megan McCafferty!! But it does sound very awesome!

  2. Totally understandable! I am calling in all my favors trying to get my hands on a copy in time for Dystopian February.

  3. This looks sooo amazing! I loved the Jessica Darling series too. I hope you win the ARC :) My WoW

  4. This does look good...hope you enjoy it.

    Here's mine:

  5. So many people are waiting for Bumped (I am too, but not on WoW). I love Megan McCafferty and can't wait to see how she entertains us next.

  6. YES YES YES YES YES!!!! SO excited for this one. I met Megan McCafferty last spring and she was talking about this and I was so excited just thinking about it. Thanks for spotlighting it :) I'll probably be chatting about it on my blog as the pub date gets closer!

    Here's what I'm waiting for this week!

  7. I knew Megan McCafferty had a new book coming out, but I didn't know about the whole twins separated at birth thing. I love books about twins. Can't wait to read this one even more now!


Loved it? Hated it? Either way, I want to hear what you thought!
