Oh my gosh, ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygosh I am SO excited that SPLIT SECOND by Kasie West is releasing in less than two weeks. Wait… that’s not how I usually start off these posts. But ohmygosh I cannot help it. I am so completely and totally stoked about this news.

Okay… deep breaths… take two.

The week of February 11th has some fantastic books releasing, but the book that jumps to the tip top of the list for me is SPLIT SECOND, the sequel to PIVOT POINT. It feels like forever and ever since I read PIVOT POINT – has it really only been a year? – but I’m just dying to find out what’s going to happen next with Addie and Laila.

As I really don’t want to spoil the first book in the series, for those who might not have read it yet, I’m going to try to keep my rambling, and gushing, vague. But ohmygosh what are you waiting for? That book is awesome. And that ending is KILLER.

I am so nervous about why Addie’s powers are acting up. I’m even more nervous about her going to see her Dad and running into Trevor. And I’m so very anxious about what Laila is trying to do and how it might change things…. But that’s all I’m going to say out loud. Even though I’m curious about so many other things.

PIVOT POINT was every bit as amazing as I thought it might be. And from the description it appears that this sequel will be just as amazing, if not more so. SPLIT SECOND will be a D.E.A.R. (drop everything and read) book for me on its release date and I’m getting really, really excited – if you couldn’t tell – for its upcoming release.

So, while I am also excited about the other four titles listed below, I am the most thrilled about SPLIT SECOND‘s release. I have loved the two books I’ve read by Author Kasie West and I just know I’m going to be crazy about this sequel. Which is why I had to shine the spotlight on it and why I’m calling it the book to watch this week.

What about you?

Of all the books releasing the week of February 11th, is SPLIT SECOND the one you’ve been pining for the most or longest? Have you been counting down the days since PIVOT POINT’s release to find out what happens next?

I’d love to ask about Trevor, but those of you who “met” him know any talk of all things Trevor would be seriously spoiler-y. So I’ll just ask whether you’re as intrigued by Connor as I am?

About the Book

Goodreads description:

Life can change in a split second.

Addie hardly recognizes her life since her parents divorced. Her boyfriend used her. Her best friend betrayed her. She can’t believe this is the future she chose. On top of that, her ability is acting up. She’s always been able to Search the future when presented with a choice. Now she can manipulate and slow down time, too . . . but not without a price.

When Addie’s dad invites her to spend her winter break with him, she jumps at the chance to escape into the Norm world of Dallas, Texas. There she meets the handsome and achingly familiar Trevor. He’s a virtual stranger to her, so why does her heart do a funny flip every time she sees him? But after witnessing secrets that were supposed to stay hidden, Trevor quickly seems more suspicious of Addie than interested in her. And she has an inexplicable desire to change that.

Meanwhile, her best friend, Laila, has a secret of her own: she can restore Addie’s memories . . . once she learns how. But there are powerful people who don’t want to see this happen. Desperate, Laila tries to manipulate Connor, a brooding bad boy from school—but he seems to be the only boy in the Compound immune to her charms. And the only one who can help her.

As Addie and Laila frantically attempt to retrieve the lost memories, Addie must piece together a world she thought she knew before she loses the love she nearly forgot . . . and a future that could change everything.
