WAITING ON WEDNESDAY

images

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where each Wednesday you get to highlight a book that you’re really looking forward to. This week I’ve chosen an upcoming new release by an author whose books scream SUMMERTIME READING☀️⛱ Every summer I look forward to finding out what new dramas, secrets, love, or friendship story she’s got in store for us…I can’t WAIT until June to find out!

 

My Waiting on Wednesday Pick is:

32498081

 

To Be Published June 13th, 2017 By Little, Brown and Company

From New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand, a summertime story about identical twins who couldn’t be any less alike.

Nantucket is only two and a half hours away from Martha’s Vineyard by ferry. But the two islands might as well be worlds apart for a set of identical twin sisters who have been at odds for years. When a family crisis forces them to band together–or at least appear to–the twins slowly come to realize that the special bond that they share is more important than the sibling rivalry that’s driven them apart for the better part of their lives. A touching depiction of all the pleasures and annoyances of the sibling relationship, Elin Hilderbrand’s next New York Times bestseller, THE IDENTICALS proves once and for all that just because twins look exactly the same doesn’t mean they’re anything alike.

Looks good doesn’t it!!

THROWBACK THURSDAY PICK OF THE WEEK

throwbackthursday

I began this Throwback Thursday meme as a way to share some of my old favorites as well as sharing books that I want to read that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on my TBR list while I continue to pile more titles on top of them:)! I like that these older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, you’re welcome to use my pic as well. If you’d just link back to me I’d so appreciate it

 

My Pick this week is:

Published April 2002 By Washington Square Press

My Rating: 4/5 Stars

From Goodreads

For twenty-eight years, things have been tripping along nicely for Cannie Shapiro. Sure, her mother has come charging out of the closet, and her father has long since dropped out of her world. But she loves her friends, her rat terrier, Nifkin, and her job as pop culture reporter for The Philadelphia Examiner. She’s even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body.

But the day she opens up a national women’s magazine and sees the words “Loving a Larger Woman” above her ex-boyfriend’s byline, Cannie is plunged into misery…and the most amazing year of her life. From Philadelphia to Hollywood and back home again, she charts a new course for herself: mourning her losses, facing her past, and figuring out who she is and who she can become.

Can you say cover & title LOVE? Both of those just scream for you to pick up this fun read by Jennifer Weiner. I read this book shortly after it was published…that’s 15 years ago this month! Wow, it doesn’t seem like it’s been that long. This would make a fantastic beach read or fun summer book to read by the pool. I remember really liking Cannie and rooting for her after her ex humiliated her, which if it was in today’s social media age that article he wrote would’ve found its way to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram…and on. Even worse for Cannie! I wouldn’t call this fluffy chick-lit either. If you’ve read anything by Jennifer Weiner you know she writes with depth and really great characterization.

Happy Reading!
