Published by Amulet Books, the print edition is 336 pages.
There are a few books releasing the week of August 20th that have caught my eye. But the book that I am most desperately awaiting is THE INFINITE MOMENT OF US by Lauren Myracle.
I have heard such amazing things about this author. And this book sounds romantic and sweet and I cannot wait for its release. I love the fact that it’s not just about a love story but about a character who is trying to figure out what she wants out of life.
I cannot wait to meet Charlie Parker and find out if his lifelong crush on Wren becomes something more. And I’m curious to learn just what the complications are that the description hints at.
As I haven’t yet read a book by this author I don’t know if this story will end happily or if the description’s statement that this book is “oh-so-true to life” means a bittersweet ending. But I cannot wait to find out.
I’d thought about trying for an early copy on NetGalley, but as it is listed among the most requested books, I decided I’d just wait for its release. But just knowing the possibility of an early read exists, it somehow makes waiting that much harder. At least now there are less than three weeks left. I’ll just have to hope I can hang on.
This story first drew me in by its amazing title – THE INFINITE MOMENT OF US – and kept my interest piqued by the idea that “souls will collide” and that “certain things are written in the stars.” And the fact that the author is so highly acclaimed makes me think that this book is going to be all sorts of amazing.
So, while I am very excited for the releases of FLICKER & BURN and ASYLUM, I am most anticipating the release of this beautiful-sounding book by an author I am excited to discover for myself. And so I just had to put THE INFINITE MOMENT OF US in the spotlight this week as the book to watch.

About the Book
For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: Pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now… not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?
Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.
And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them…
Sexy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction’s greatest writers.
