Waiting on Wednesday (#19): My Sweet Revenge by Jane Fallon


Waiting on Wendesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases we can’t wait to read.

This week I am eagerly anticipating:


My Sweet Revenge by Jane Fallon

Publisher: Penguin UK, Michael Joseph

Publication Date: January 12th, 2017


I want to make my husband fall back in love with me.

Let me explain. This isn’t an exercise in 1950s wifeydom. I haven’t been reading articles in old women’s magazines. ‘Twenty ways to keep your man’. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

I want him to fall back in love with me so that when I tell him to get the hell out of my life he’ll care. He won’t just think, ‘Oh good’.

I want it to hurt.

Paula has had Robert’s back since they got together as drama students. She gave up her dreams so he could make it. Now he’s one of the nation’s most popular actors. And Paula’s just discovered he’s having an affair.

She’s going to remind Robert just what he’s sacrificing. And then she’s going to break his heart like he broke hers. It will be her greatest acting role ever.

Revenge is sweet. Isn’t it?

Why am I waiting?

It seems to me this story could go two ways: it could blow our minds with it’s greatness, or it could make us roll our eyes.
I have a feeling the first will be the case, and I simply can’t wait to read it.
Also, I am so curious to see how she’s going to make her husband fall in love with her!

Jane Fallon is pretty popular author, but I still haven’t read anything by her. I hope My Sweet Revenge will be my first encounter with her writing.

  1. This book sounds like it could be really good. I wonder if they will both fall back in love. (I hope not).and I wonder if she will be imaginative in her ways to make him fall back in love. It could be fab book, I haven’t heard of it. But I will wait and see what you think when you read it. Great cover too, that alone would make me want to read it.
