Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

The Theory of Everything
by Kari Luna

hitting shelves July 11th, 2013 from Philomel 

Sophie Sophia is obsessed with music from the late eighties. She also has an eccentric physicist father who sometimes vanishes for days and sees things other people don’t see. But when he disappears for good and Sophie’s mom moves them from Brooklyn, New York, to Havencrest, Illinois, for a fresh start, things take a turn for the weird. Sophie starts seeing things, like marching band pandas, just like her dad.

Guided by Walt, her shaman panda, and her new (human) friend named Finny, Sophie is determined to find her father and figure out her visions, once and for all. So she travels back to where it began—New York City and NYU’s physics department. As she discovers more about her dad’s research on M-theory and her father himself, Sophie opens her eyes to the world’s infinite possibilities—and her heart to love.


My thoughts: This sounds like all kinds of fun and weird, and it has to be one of the most interesting and adorable covers to come out of YA this year.  I'll definitely be reading this one. 


  1. This sounds like a very unique story (and the pandas are absolutely adorable).
    Thanks for the share!

  2. This does sound very weird (on the level of last year's Chopsticks), but that cover does suggest cute and harmless, so I'll probably keep an eye out for this title. Nice pick!

    If you'd like, you can check out my WoW here.

  3. Wow! The Theory if Everything seems really cool. I love that cover. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Now this is a book that is different and I adore that. I will sure keep my eyes open for this one. Thank you for the heads up.

  5. Great choice. Sounds fun! Here is mine: http://inbetweenbooksreviews.blogspot.com/2013/01/waiting-on-wednesday-apollyon-by.html

  6. That cover is probably one of the weirdest pictures I've ever seen. This book sounds utterly unique, which is something pretty hard to do. I think I'll have to put it on my TBR pile, just to see how weird it really is! ;)

    Fantastic pick Becky, thanks for sharing! <3

  8. haha, this seems unique and cute really. I think the cute part is mostly because of the pandas haha.
