Waiting on Wednesday#61: The Fool (Virtual Arcana #0) by Karen Amanda Hooper

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that I am anxiously awaiting is:

The Fool
by Karen Amanda Hooper


The Matrix meets The Notebook (with a sprinkle of The Giver)

In a faraway future, Kelsey Zellar is starting her senior year at yet another school thanks to her twin sister's troublesome obsession with outlawed virtual reality games. 

Every school they’ve ever attended is pretty much the same: lunchroom drama, rich kids binging on enhancement candies, and classmates rallying for or against the government’s strict control over everything from entertainment privileges to caffeine consumption.

Unlike her sister, Kelsey follows the rules and keeps her nose out of trouble and politics while sniffing out her next flavored latte and favorite novel. But when Kelsey meets a charming book connoisseur, and accepts his offering of a tarot card, she takes the first step toward two new addictions: the guy of her dreams, and his illegal dealing of virtual escapes into her beloved storybooks.

Kelsey straddles the worlds of fiction and reality, but is she a fool for believing in her own happy ending?

**This series will be serial style with short episodes (15-25k) releasing frequently. 
For those who wants to wait for a longer, more complete story, a collection of the first 7 episodes, VIRTUAL ARCANA, Season 1, will be available once episode 7 has released**

Why I can't wait

I loved the Kindrily series by Karen, so any book she writes automatically ends up on my TBR list. Besides this whole synopsis sounds really interesting. On top of that I love the concept of releasing the "book" in pieces. That way we won't have to wait long in between two stories.

Expected publication date: September 2014

What are you waiting for this week?



  1. This sounds super interesting! Although, I'm not sure I have the patience to wait for each serial installment :) Great pick!

    1. The great time about this is that there is only little time between two installments, that way you don't have to wait as long as normally between two books. :)
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Huh...I haven't heard of this one before. I hope you enjoy it!

  3. I'm so honored! Thanks so much for choosing my book. I'm excited about sharing it with my readers. It's different from my other books, but still lots of magic and romance. ;)

    1. Magic and romance is the best combination! :D Can't wait to read this book.
