White Space by Ilsa J. Bick
Series Dark Passages #1
Expected publication: February 11th 2014 by Egmont USA
Love this cover! And again with the feathers…
Ilsa Bick’s WHITE SPACE, pitched as The Matrix meets Inkheart, about a seventeen-year-old girl who jumps between the lines of books and into the white space where realities are created and destroyed – but who may herself be nothing more than a character written into being from an alternative universe, to Greg Ferguson at Egmont, in a two-book deal, by Jennifer Laughran at Andrea Brown Literary Agency (NA
I love Isla J. Bick and her Ashes series was incredibly awesome! Even though a clear synopsis is missing just this sentence actually sold me:
“The Matrix meets Inkheart, about a seventeen-year-old girl who jumps between the lines of books and into the white space where realities are created and destroyed – but who may herself be nothing more than a character written into being from an alternative universe”

I agree that Matrix + Inkheart really sells it. Have you read Inkheart, Danny? If so, did you read it back when you were still reading books in German? I’ve read one of Funke’s books. I think it was Inkheart but I can’t remember.
Ummmm The Matrix meets Inkheart? YES PLEASE. Plus I LOVE Ilsa J. Bick and all her books! So excited for this one as well. 😀
This sounds like it could be really awesome! But there’s also so much that can go wrong… I’m still definitely reading it (and probably buying because beautiful cover) but I’ll be trying to keep low expectations for it.

This one sounds awesome! I was never really a big fan of The Matrix (except for the effects; that I loved), but I liked Inkheart, so I’m sold already. And the cover is amazing <3

I admit, after the Matrix and Inkheart mention, I got a little fuddled. But it nevertheless sounds awesome. I haven’t read anything else from Ilsa Bick, but I may have to check it out! Great feature this week. Man, that cover!!! : )

Oh, damn! This sounds SO FLIPPIN’ AWESOME!!! I didn’t know she had another coming out. *runs to Goodreads* Plus, I LOVE the cover with the murder of ravens (I love that a flock of ravens is called a murder!). Very creepy!
Mary @ BookSwarm recently posted..Waiting On…DESERT TALES by Melissa Marr and CRASH INTO YOU by Katie McGarry
That cover itself is enough to get me to add the book to my wish-list!
It is just so gorgeous! And it’s supposed to be like Matrix! Woot! I’m sold!

White Space sounds really cool. I would love to have a power that allows you to jump into books…..

WOW. This sounds so fantastic Danny! I haven’t heard of it before but it’s on my list for sure now. Love those feathers on the cover, and how cool would it be to be able to jump into the white space of any book? Yes please!
I never read Ilsa Bick before, but this sounds REALLY good. Definitely going to be on the look out for it!
Can you believe that I’ve never read anything by this author? I really need to change that. 🙂 Great pick, Danny!
Hmmm. That does sound intriguing. The Matrix meets Inkheart, eh? I haven’t seen this one yet, so thanks! Great pick!
Natalie @Natflix&Books recently posted..Waiting on Wednesday (15) Bright Before Sunrise
White Space does sound amazing, and yes that blurb got me too…Matrix (family just watched that last night) combined with Inkheart-count me in too! Great pick Danny. 🙂

I want to try this author and this sounds super cool. I am going to be on the lookout for this one. Thanks for sharing! Happy WEdnesday!
Heidi recently posted..Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols
I just added this to my TBR list a couple days ago! It looks SO COOL! I was a huge fan of Inkheart when I was younger. That influence coupled with the Matrix makes me want to pick up this book, pronto! Hurry up and get published!
Janita @ Book, Interrupted recently posted..Waiting on Wednesday (19)
I haven’t read anything by this author but I feel like I really need to. I know the Ashes series was a big winner all around. I don’t remember reading anything negative about it. It just kind of passed me by. This one does sound so amazing. A character (maybe) who jumps between white spaces- that is so out there! Gotta mark this one down as a must read!

That cover is GORGEOUS! I still haven’t read anything by this author and I guess I’ll have to fix that soon. Thanks so much for sharing! Such a great pick, Danny 😀
Vy recently posted..Waiting On Wednesday I Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano
Hmmm, I’ve never read anything by Ilsa J. Bick. But I’ve heard of her Ashes series – that was a pretty successful series, right? I’ll have to check out this one when it comes out. One more February 11th read I have to add to my TBR list 😉
Check out my WoW post!

Wowww, “the matrix meets Inheart” — I definitely need to add this to my wishlist. I love the simplistic (but cool) cover! Great pick, Danny 😀
Becca @ Nawanda Files recently posted..Waiting on Wednesday: Darkest Fear by Cate Tiernan
Yes! I can’t wait to read this book. I’m a fan of Bick, even though I rarely ever like the way she ends her books… but she’s really good at writing and building suspense 🙂
