Time After Time by Tamara Ireland Stone
Release Date: October 8, 2013
Description from Goodreads:
Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement: she’s from 1995 Chicago and he’s a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds.
It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work...until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn't want?
Told from Bennett’s point of view, Time After Time will satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what’s next for Time Between Us's Anna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time.
I am so incredibly excited for Time After Time, I can't even tell you. I adored Time Between Us, so the fact that there is a sequel makes me happy, and the fact that said sequel is in BENNETT'S POV? Eeeep!
But I'm not here to fangirl over Bennett.
Well, okay...maybe a little.
But I'm here to give you the next song from Bennett's playlist! Because the author of these pretty books, Tamara Ireland Stone, is having a playlist blog hop. On the 8th of every month until Time After Time is released, there will be one song from Bennett's playlist revealed on a different blog. Today, I am that blog! WOOT!
For the record, the same is happening on the 22nd of every month for Anna's playlist. You didn't think we forgot about our girl, did you?!
But I'm doing a song from Bennett's playlist. So we're focusing on him for now.
I had two playlists full of songs to choose from. I could have picked from either (given that the song I picked wasn't picked already, heh). There were several that caught my eye right off the bat and I was all flailing and excited to have the chance to choose them. The thing was, though, that I could only choose ONE. And I wanted to be sure I chose the right one. So I decided to just listen to the playlists. I started with Bennett's playlist (because I have such a crush on that book boy and there was a particular song on his playlist that I THOUGHT I was going to pick--I ended up picking a different song, though). I was sitting there, doing my regular thing as I listened to Bennett's playlist.
But then this song came on. And my attention went 100% to the song playing. I'm not even sure why. I hadn't planned on giving this song much attention. But then it was playing and I was all excited about THIS song, and... I don't know. I just knew. I emailed Tamara and pretty much begged her to tell me that no one else had chosen this song yet, and thank my lucky stars that she replied it was now mine. So my song is...
3 Doors Down -- When I'm Gone
Have you heard this song before? I know I did. I liked it, but I'd never given it too much attention until now and I FREAKING LOVE THE CRAP OUT OF IT. So yeah. I feel like it fits Anna & Bennett really well, too. If you've read Time Between Us , you know what I mean. If you haven't read it...well, you really should! ;)
And then there's this video, which really has nothing to do with the book or anything, but I like it, so I'm adding it here. Hehe
And yes. I am totally listening to this song on repeat right now. OBVIOUSLY.
I suppose it's time to let you in on that giveaway thing mentioned in the title of this post, eh?
