Waiting on Wednesday: Life is But a Dream

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Summary from Goodreads:

Alec and Sabrina are crazy in love. Problem is: Sabrina’s really crazy.

Sabrina, an artist, is diagnosed with schizophrenia, and her parents check her into the Wellness Center. There she meets Alec, who is convinced it’s the world that’s crazy, not the two of them. They are meant to be together; they are special. But when Alec starts to convince Sabrina that her treatment will wipe out everything that makes her creative, she worries that she’ll lose hold of her dreams and herself. Should she listen to her doctor? Her decision may have fatal consequences.


Life is But a Dream by Brian James will be released by Feiwel & Friends on March 27, 2012.

The relationship between mental illness and creativity is always fascinating to me. As much as I love reading Kay Redfield Jamison’s books, I’m even more excited about this fictionalized version of an artist who suffers from schizophrenia. Beyond the intriguing summary, look at that amazing cover! This is definitely a book I want on my shelves.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  • OMG. This book sounds really great! And that line, “Problem is: Sabrina’s really crazy.” SOLD.

    I hardly ever add books to my TBR list based off these things. But man oh man I love me some disorder books. Winner winner chicken dinner.

    Also, now I can’t get “row row row your boat” out of my head.
