Waiting on Wednesday: Tumble & Fall

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Title: Tumble & Fall
Author: Alexandra Coutts
Publisher: FSG BYR
Publish Date: September 17, 2013
Genre: YA, Sci-Fi, Romance
Pages: 384
The world is living in the shadow of oncoming disaster. An asteroid is set to strike the earth in just one week’s time; catastrophe is unavoidable. The question isn’t how to save the world—the question is, what to do with the time that's left?

Against this stark backdrop, three island teens wrestle with intertwining stories of love, friendship and family—all with the ultimate stakes at hand.
First and foremost, let's take a look at that cover. Ok, now wipe the drool off your face. Am I right?! Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts is gorgeous. Second, it's got this cool, sci-fi, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it vibe going on, which reminds me vaguely of Life As We Knew It, which is one of my favourite books. Add in romance, a twisting storyline, multiple character arcs, and I'm sold. I can't wait for this one! What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?


  1. The cover doesn't make me think sci fi/end of the world. Sounds like it's more of a contemp plot with a sci fi backdrop.

  2. I definitely have to agree with that...but it sure is a pretty cover!

  3. Melissa I've had my eye on this book for ages too, the cover is absolutely stunning, but I also love the unique concept it provides too. Great pick! :)

  4. Yup, I've been anticipating this one as well! It sounds like it's going to be a pretty interesting read indeed :)

  5. Yes! I've been dying to read this one too! Love the concept and I love the cover!

    My W.O.W.

  6. I'm excited for this one, too. That cover is drool-worthy, for sure. It kind of sounds like that recent movie, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Great pick!
    Here's my WOW

  7. That sounds like a good one!
    Thanks for the recommendation.


  8. You're SO right, that cover is stunning. Plus the blurb sounds amazing! I'll definitely be reading this as soon as it comes out.

    My WoW

  9. I don't know what it is about covers...I just can't help myself!

  10. oooooh now that you mention it...it totally does!

  11. I think we have the same taste in books, Alexa ;)

  12. I hope it lives up to the hype it clearly has from that cover!

  13. The blurb sounds really good but that cover is just amazing. I would get this just for that cover

    My Wow

  14. I just love the sound of this one. Pre-apocalypse? I love it. Plus, the cover is gorgeous.


    My WOW

  15. I'm very curious about this book, it sounds fantastic. And the cover is so stunning!

    Fabulous WOW choice :D

  16. This book looks amazing and I love the cover!

    Here's my WoW

  17. This cover definitely makes me drool. I have super high hopes for this one, but a story line like this can go either way I think---either way too depressing or the "live every day like it's your last" kind of thing. I hope it's the latter!

    Btw---glad to see you back in the blogosphere, Melissa! :D

  18. I love the cover and synopsis for this one (although they don't quite match in my opinion-will have to give it a read to judge suitability.)

  19. Definitely seems like an heart-wrenching read. Nice WoW pick!
