Can’t Wait Wednesday – Spotlight on I HAVE LOST MY WAY by Gayle Forman
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is I HAVE LOST MY WAY by Gayle Forman. A book about friendship that is also set in New York City? That feels like it just has my name written all over it! I am also quite curious about the fact that the book covers only a single day but from three different points of view.
I HAVE LOST MY WAY by Gayle Forman
Publication Date: April 1, 2018
A powerful display of empathy and friendship from the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of If I Stay.
Around the time that Freya loses her voice while recording her debut album, Harun is making plans to run away from home to find the boy that he loves, and Nathaniel is arriving in New York City after a family tragedy leaves him isolated on the outskirts of Washington state. After the three of them collide in Central Park, they slowly reveal the parts of their past that they haven’t been able to confront, and together, they find their way back to who they’re supposed to be.
Told over the course of a single day from three different perspectives, Gayle Forman’s newest novel about the power of friendship and being true to who you are is filled with the elegant prose that her fans have come to know and love.

I’d love to hear what upcoming book releases you’re waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me your link in the comments below and I’ll stop by and check out your CWW selection for this week. 🙂
I love Forman and her one day books. Stories of friendship are my second favorite, and the premise sounds very promising. I am waiting right there with you for this one.
Yay, hopefully we both love it!
I have enjoyed Gayle Forman in the past so I will totally pick this one up. Love the cover!!
Me too. It’s gorgeous!
I had no idea that the cover for this one was revealed already! I absolutely love Gayle Forman. This one sounds like a book that I am going to just love as well. I hope that we both enjoy it. 🙂
I’ve actually never read one of her books before so I’m really excited to finally give her a try.
Gayle Forman is one of my favorite YA authors so I can’t wait to read this one. I’m excited about the New York City setting, and I’m curious about the one day timeline as well. Usually, books like that make me nervous (will they be well developed enough? Will the story feel complete?), but I’m sure Gayle will do a great job.
I hope so. It sounds like a great read.
I’m seeing a lot of books featuring music this week – must be the latest trend. Hope you love this one.
Thanks, me too!
I still haven’t read anything by Gayle Forman, although her books seem like ones I would like! The fact that this book takes place over one day sounds interesting!
This will be my first time reading Forman as well so I’m pretty excited.
I haven’t heard of this book before – which is surprising since it’s written by Gayle Forman. I just feel for its synopsis, so it’s a must add to my wishlist. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

I haven’t heard of this yet, but I can’t wait for it now! I love books that focus on friendships so I have a feeling this one is going to be amazing. Great choice!
Thanks! I’m such a sucker for a good friendship book so I’m hoping this one lives up to my expectations since it sounds so good.

Ooh I like books that take place over a limited period of time. Thanks for sharing.
Oh wow, this sounds amazing. And Foreman’s writing is always so wonderful, so I will certainly be adding this one. Thank you for sharing it.
YES!😍😍😍 I love Gayle Forman and I’m super excited about her next book. I love that it’s set in NYC, I try to read anything that is based in NYC because it’s my home but also because it’s the most wonderful city. Great pick! 💋 xoxo
NYC is my favorite city too. It’s almost a guarantee that if a book is set there, I’m going to read it. 🙂
This one sounds really interesting – a book of our time. Many thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome 🙂
You’re right. This sounds AWESOME! Thanks for sharing. I’m curious. 😁❤️
I hope you’ll enjoy it once you read it.
Oh, that cover looks amazing. Didn´t know that Gayle had a new book coming out. Thanks for sharing!
I am so curious to see how Forman pulls together three very random people and makes it work properly. Interesting pic,k, Suzanne!
I would really like to read more by Forman. This one sounds especially good! Thank you for bringing this one to my attention.
