Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE SEVEN YEAR SLIP by Ashley Poston


“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 since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE SEVEN YEAR SLIP by Ashley Poston. Poston’s The Dead Romantics was one of my favorite reads last year and I’ve also really enjoyed her YA books in the past, so I’m beyond excited to read her latest, especially since it features a bookish heroine and such a unique premise.

THE SEVEN YEAR SLIP by Ashley Poston

Publication Date:  June 27, 2023 by Berkley

From Goodreads:

An overworked book publicist with a perfectly planned future hits a snag when she falls in love with her temporary roommate…only to discover he lives seven years in the past, in this witty and wise new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Dead Romantics.

Sometimes, the worst day of your life happens, and you have to figure out how to live after it.

So Clementine forms a plan to keep her heart safe: work hard, find someone decent to love, and try to remember to chase the moon. The last one is silly and obviously metaphorical, but her aunt always told her that you needed at least one big dream to keep going. And for the last year, that plan has gone off without a hitch. Mostly. The love part is hard because she doesn’t want to get too close to anyone–she isn’t sure her heart can take it.

And then she finds a strange man standing in the kitchen of her late aunt’s apartment. A man with kind eyes and a Southern drawl and a taste for lemon pies. The kind of man that, before it all, she would’ve fallen head-over-heels for. And she might again.

Except, he exists in the past. Seven years ago, to be exact. And she, quite literally, lives seven years in his future.

Her aunt always said the apartment was a pinch in time, a place where moments blended together like watercolors. And Clementine knows that if she lets her heart fall, she’ll be doomed.

After all, love is never a matter of time–but a matter of timing.

    I like Poston’s books. I didn’t think there was enough romance in the last one, but I loved it nonetheless (for the story, of course). Hope this is a hit for us both

    Oh The Dead Romantics was a 5 star read for me last year, I’m interested to see how this one works too! It sounds like such a good story. I’ll have to add it to my library hold list once it’s released 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    Normally, this blurb wouldn’t make this a book I want to read. I will read it because I loved The Dead Romantics and now am willing to try just about anything she writes. I hope we both love this one!
