Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly feature that's hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. It highlights the upcoming releases we're really excited about reading! CWW is a spinoff of the feature Waiting on Wednesday (WoW), that was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Half Life by Lillian Clark
Expected publication: June 9th 2020

Synopsis (via Goodreads): An overachiever enrolls in an experimental clone study to prove that two (of her own) heads are better than one in this fast-paced, near-future adventure that's Black Mirror meets Becky Albertalli.

There aren't enough hours in the day for Lucille--perfectionist, overachiever--to do everything she has to do, and there certainly aren't enough hours to hang out with friends, fall in love, get in trouble--all the teenage things she knows she should want to be doing instead of preparing for a flawless future. So when she sees an ad for Life2: Do more. Be more, she's intrigued.

The company is looking for beta testers to enroll in an experimental clone program, and in the aftermath of a series of disappointments, Lucille is feeling reckless enough to jump in. At first, it's perfect: her clone, Lucy, is exactly what she needed to make her life manageable and have time for a social life. But it doesn't take long for Lucy to become more Lucy and less Lucille, and Lucille is forced to stop looking at Lucy as a reflection and start seeing her as a window--a glimpse at someone else living her own life, but better.

Lucy does what she really wants to, not what she thinks she should want to, and Lucille is left wondering how much she was even a part of the perfect life she'd constructed for herself. Lucille wanted Lucy to help her relationships with everyone else, but how can she do that without first rectifying her relationship with herself?

  1. Interesting sounding plot for Half Life...a bit of a different spin on cloning. I hope you enjoy it when you get to read it!

    1. I'm not usually into science fiction, or clones for that matter, but the premise was just too interesting to pass up! I HAD to add it to my TBR. :)

  2. Ahh, Half Life is also on my TBR,I am so so curious about it! I hope we'll both love it :) Happy reading!

    1. I hope it's as interesting as it sounds! :)

  3. Hope you enjoy, they look like some good reads!!

    1. Ant-Man, Hawkeye, and Jessica Jones have been fantastic!

  5. Half Life sounds weird but original! I hope you enjoy it.

    1. Haha! I loved that it sounded weird... it's one of the things that made me add it to my TBR. I don't typically go for sci-fi, but something about it has piqued my interest. ;)

  6. Half Life seems so freaking awesome (pardon my language). I haven't seen it before, so thank you so much for sharing it!!!

    Happy readings!

    1. What language?? 'Freaking' is a totally acceptable word, especially when talking about books! ;) I hope we both enjoy it if/when we have a chance to read it.

  7. Half Life certainly sounds fresh! I'll be looking out for your review. πŸ‘✨

    1. It's not something I would typically go for, but the cover caught me, and the synopsis kept me hooked. We'll see how it goes! ;)
