Waiting on Wednesday (#31): After Eden by Helen Douglas


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


After Eden by Helen Douglas
Book One of the After Eden series
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Publication Date: November 5, 2013

Summary (from Goodreads):

The day Eden met Ryan changed her world forever. Actually, not just her world. Ryan has time traveled from the future to save the world. In a few weeks, Eden’s best friend Connor will discover a new planet—one where human life is possible. The discovery will make him famous. It will also ruin the world as we know it. When Ryan asks Eden for help, she must choose between saving the world and saving her best friend’s greatest achievement. And a crush on Ryan complicates things more than she could have imagined. Because Connor is due to make the discovery after the girl he loves breaks his heart. That girl is Eden. 

Grounded in a realistic teen world with fascinating sci-fi elements, After Eden is a heart-pounding love triangle that’s perfect for dystopian fans looking for something new to devour.



I can't wait to read this book. I vastly prefer the UK paperback version (see HERE), and I'll be buying that.

  6. Yeah the cover...isn't my favorite. BUT IT SOUNDS SO COOL especially since this character is LOOKING for the Scifi aspect of this. And hopefully won't be all'GASP I DON'T BELIEVE YOU"

  11. Time travel books are not always for me -- and that love triangle makes me wary, but I like to keep an open mind :)

    1. Those two things piss me off to no end - but that's what I keep telling myself. A sort-of love triangle and time travel are both in Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier, but I LOVE that series.

  17. This one sounds like it could be really interesting, as long as it's done well... I'm definitely curious about it! And I totally agree about the cover. Usually I like the North American covers better but not this time.

    1. RIGHT?! We always get the better covers! Except... with this book. Probably because I think it was sold to the UK, and the the USA bought rights. I have no idea O_O

      Delete
  18. The UK version does look a lot better! There's just something a little off to my eye with the US cover.

    I saw this last week in a WoW and think it sounds good. Sci-fi and dystopian elements, yay!
