Can’t-Wait Wednesday, aka Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme originating from Jill at Breaking the Spine and now hosted by Wishful Endings. If you’re interested in participating, stop by Wishful Endings to link up your posts.
In 1967, four female scientists worked together to build the world’s first time machine. But just as they are about to debut their creation, one of them suffers a breakdown, putting the whole project—and future of time travel—in jeopardy. To protect their invention, one member is exiled from the team—erasing her contributions from history.
Fifty years later, time travel is a big business. Twenty-something Ruby Rebello knows her beloved grandmother, Granny Bee, was one of the pioneers, though no one will tell her more. But when Bee receives a mysterious newspaper clipping from the future reporting the murder of an unidentified woman, Ruby becomes obsessed: could it be Bee? Who would want her dead? And most importantly of all: can her murder be stopped?
Traversing the decades and told from alternating perspectives, The Psychology of Time Travel introduces a fabulous new voice in fiction and a new must-read for fans of speculative fiction and women’s fiction alike.
Oh, this book seems like it’s going to be so good. I love time travel stories and this one seems like it’s going to be really interesting. Looking forward to it! The Psychology of Time Travel is scheduled to come out February 12th, 2019 from Crooked Lane Books.

This does sound good! And that cover is pretty, it looks like embroidery 😁
Yes, I love the cover!
I actually read and reviewed this book for Netgalley. It was pretty good, though I liked the first half better than the second half, if I’m being honest.
Thanks for your thoughts on it. 🙂
This looks amazing!
I thought it seemed kind of interesting. 🙂
I’m probably going to have to wait to see some reviews first just because … all. the. books. It does sound good though, hope you enjoy it
Yeah, I know what you mean by all the books 😂😂
I have this on my watchlist, maybe one to consider depending on what the early response is like. I think it could be good!
The concept was intriguing to me, we’ll see how the execution is. 🙂
I’m with Mogsy – I’m awaiting early responses to see how this is received – only because time travel can be a bit hit and miss for me. The cover certainly is lovely.
I always find time travel interesting because I like to see what authors do with the challenge of paradox. 🙂
Yeah. Sometimes I love it. But then sometimes I end up in a spiral of never ending questions 😄
That happens to me too but I feel like I love trying to work it out haha. Or if it doesn’t work then I love a good rant about it. 🙂
Rants are quite therapeutic sometimes 😄
