Waiting on Wednesday: My name is...

Waiting on Wendnesday is hosted by Breaking The Spine and is a weekly event all about upcoming release we can't wait to get into!
This week I waiting on My Name Is Memory by Ann Brashares.
The cover caught my eye much like most random books I choose...I can't help it...I like the aesthetically pleasing :D
For Goodreads:


Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. Daniel has "the memory", the ability to recall past lives and recognize souls of those he's previously known. It is a gift and a curse. For all the times that he and Sophia have been drawn together throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart. A love always too short.

Interwoven through Sophia and Daniel's unfolding present day relationship are glimpses of their expansive history together. From 552 Asia Minor to 1918 England and 1972 Virginia, the two souls share a long and sometimes torturous path of seeking each other time and time again. But just when young Sophia (now "Lucy" in the present) finally begins to awaken to the secret of their shared past, to understand the true reason for the strength of their attraction, the mysterious force that has always torn them apart reappears. Ultimately, they must come to understand what stands in the way of their love if they are ever to spend a lifetime together.

A magical, suspenseful, heartbreaking story of true love, 
My Name is Memory proves the power and endurance of a union that was meant to be.
I am intrigued by the story line...it has elements of fantasy and historical fiction while being a YA book...it's a dream book...I hope it reads like a dream too!

I really want this one too. It reminds me of Fallen by Lauren Kate so you will probably enjoy that one too if you like this.

This one is available through librarything early reviewers, if you're on there.

I've only read one book by Ann Brashares 'the last summer of you and me', but I didn't really enjoy it. Hope you like this one!

I want to cry just reading this. Sounds wonderful and I'm adding it to my TBR list. Sounds similar to The Time Traveler's Wife but with enough differences.
Check mine out @ Silly Little Game Called Life
