Waiting On Wednesday: Things We Know By Heart by Jessi Kirby



“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine, and it gives you a chance to spotlight a book that you are eagerly waiting to be released.


This week, I picked:

 
Things We Know By Heart
By Jessi Kirby
Publication Date: April 21, 2015


Summary from Goodreads:


When Quinn Sullivan meets the recipient of her boyfriend’s donated heart, the two form an unexpected connection.

After Quinn loses her boyfriend, Trent, in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the pieces of her now-unrecognizable life. She hears back from some of them, but the person who received Trent’s heart has remained silent. The essence of a person, she has always believed, is in the heart. If she finds Trent’s, then maybe she can have peace once and for all.

Risking everything in order to finally lay her memories to rest, Quinn goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas—a guy whose life has been forever changed by this priceless gift. But what starts as an accidental run-in quickly develops into more, sparking an undeniable attraction. She doesn't want to give in to it—especially since he has no idea how they're connected—but their time together has made Quinn feel alive again. No matter how hard she’s falling for Colton, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she’s lost…and all that remains at stake

Why I Picked it:

When I first read about this book, I thought of the movie Searching For David’s Heart, which pretty much has the same premise of Things We Know by Heart. And even though it has been a long time since I’ve seen that movie, I remembered that I adored it. So my expectations for this book are pretty high.
