On A Bookish Date: When The World Was Flat (And We Were in Love)

Feb 18, 2013
On A Bookish Date is a meme in which I share my love for books and cure my style cravings.

The title for Ingrid Jonach's YA debut When The World Was Flat (And We Were in Love) is incredibly clever and lovely. The premise is equally stunning. Ever since seeing The Time Traveler's Wife I've been obsessed with time travel and alternate dimensions. This book doesn't have a cover yet, but it will be here later this year. I found the heart shaped map on the author's pin-board.

There is no such thing as imagination.

Your dreams are memories from an alternate dimension.
And that cold shiver down your spine as you sleep means you are already dead.

These are the facts sixteen-year-old Lillie Hart must come to accept when the gorgeous and mysterious Tom Windsor-Smith arrives in her small Nebraskan town. These, and the fact that the two of them, Tom and Lillie, have been in love before – in a different dimension.

In fact, Tom has been sliding between parallel worlds for hundreds of years, falling in love with versions of Lillie over and over again in every world. But when the present Lillie learns the secret of their connection, she learns as well that their love must overcome more than their multiple past heartaches. There is also a powerful enemy who aims to ensure the two will never be together again, in this dimension or the next.

For our date I'd add a dash of dots and purple.
