Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine.The idea of Waiting on Wednesday is to talk about upcoming books that you’re excited about. I am excited to do this feature because it will allow me to look at upcoming books a lot more, and be more aware of what’s new in the world of books.

Check this book out on Goodreads.
Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.
When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink. (Source: Goodreads)
I think I initially heard about this book on someone else’s WoW, but I don’t remember who it was. I thought, as soon as I read the description that it looked like it had the potential to be really amazing. I’ve seen comparisons to Gayle Forman and Rainbow Rowell which really intrigued me and gave me some high hopes for this book.
We just got our shipment in at work of this book, and I am anxiously awaiting the release date so I can buy my copy!
What book are you looking forward to? Let me know in the comments!
