Waiting on Wednesday (25) - Lanna

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme started by Breaking the Spine.

My Name is Memory
by Ann Brashares

Release date: 24th of June 2010 (UK)

Summary (from Amazon):
Not everyone believes in the existence of 'the one', the love of our life that we are destined to find, but Daniel knows it’s real. How could he not? He has spent centuries meeting and falling in love with the same girl over and over and over again.

Life after reincarnated life, generation after generation, spanning continents and dynasties, he and Lucy have been drawn together – and though he can never tell her, he remembers it all. He has the gift, or the curse, of 'the memory', the ability to recall past lives and recognize the reincarnated souls he has known. The problem is, the force that draws Lucy and Daniel together also always tears them painfully, fatally apart, to the point that he has started trying to protect her from falling in love with him and the heartbreak he knows it will bring.

[Note: I think that is the UK cover, the US one may be different?]

I loved the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants series and The Last Summer of Me and You is buried somewhere in Mount TBR, so I'm really looking forward to reading this one. <3

  2. Whoa i'm so confused. Because this sounds really really similar to Fallen by Lauren Kate. The plot and also the names, expect Lucy is Luce but Daniel is Daniel. I thought maybe it was the UK version but different author. But same same plot.

  3. @Harmony, yeah it does sound similar - I have Fallen too, but haven't read it yet.

    This is an adult book though, I think, Fallen is YA so that will make them different right away (I've seen quite a few soulmates reincarnated stories - I actually started writing one myself a few years ago, it's one of those ideas that isn't particularly original so quite a lot of authors can easily come up with the same basic plot with just different details).
