#LoveOzYAbookclub May 2021 title announcement – WAKING ROMEO

Hi bookclubbers! This month’s title WAKING ROMEO is the sophomore novel from Kathryn Barker, following her Aurealis-winning, CBCA Notable IN THE SKIN OF A MONSTER, and I can’t wait to dive in!

Here’s the blurb:


It’s the end of the world. Literally. Time travel is possible, but only forwards. And only a handful of families choose to remain in the ‘now’, living off the scraps that were left behind. Among these are eighteen-year-old Juliet and the love of her life, Romeo. But things are far from rosy for Jules. Romeo is in a coma and she’s estranged from her friends and family, dealing with the very real fallout of their wild romance. Then a handsome time traveller, Ellis, arrives with an important mission that makes Jules question everything she knows about life and love. Can Jules wake Romeo and rewrite her future?

A highly original mashupthat delights as it disorients … and asks what would have happened if two great literary love stories were somehow intertwined.

I’m looking forward to this mashup of Romeo and Juliet and Wuthering Heights, with a time-travelling twist, and I hope you’re as keen to read as I am 🙂

You can find a copy of WAKING ROMEO at Boomerang Books, and use the ‘loveoz’ code to get free shipping. Alternatively, you can find the ebook right here.

I’m looking forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts about this one at the end of the month! Until then, have a good week and happy reading 🙂
