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:
A Year and a Day by Isabelle Broom
Publication Date: November 17th, 2016
Three women. Three love stories. One city.
For Megan, visiting Prague with her friend Ollie is just business. Nothing more. Because if she admits the truth she might lose everything.
For Hope, this trip is a surprise treat from Charlie, her new partner. But she’s struggling to enjoy the city when she knows how angry her daughter is. And that it’s all her fault.
For Sophie, Prague has always been magical. And now she’s counting down the moments until her boyfriend Robin joins her in the city that holds so many of their memories . . .
Why am I waiting?
This year I read Isabelle Broom’s My Map of You and fell in love with her writing style and the story in general. My Map of You is honestly one of the best novels I have read this year, so I can’t wait to read Broom’s future work.
She did such an amazing job describing Greece and making me want to visit there. Now, her new book is taking place in Prague, the city I actually visited once.
I am the most curious about how Broom’s going to describe the beauty of it using words, but am also intrigued by the plot and I can’t wait to meet Megan, Hope and Sophie.
It is Day 4 of Bout of Books read-a-thon and today’s challenge is to give some book recommendations on the “If you like this, try this” base.
So, without further ado, here are my book suggestions:
If you like chick-lit series with clumsy heroines that will get under your skin, books that will make you feel better even if you had a bad day, try I heart series by Lindsey Kelk.
If you like books with time travel that will keep you on the edge and make you want to speed up your reading so you could turn those pages fast enough, try Tempest series by Julie Cross.
If you like books with setting so well described and mental landscape pictures so tempting that you will want to transport yourself in the story so you could be there and see the beauty of the place with your own eyes, try My Map pf You by Isabelle Broom.
If you like books that will make you feel emotional and you will think about the story for days after finishing it, try The Second Love of My Life by Victoria Walters.
If you like books that give you glimpse of past while following the present, books that will make you think of other people’s reasons behind their actions, with a chance to wrack judgments you have, try Christmas at Tiffany’s by Karen Swan.
If you like hot, swoon worthy feel good young adult contemporary reads, try On the Fence by Kasie West.
On the second day of Bout of Books read-a-thon my reading pace is similar to the one I had on the day 1. I am pretty much satisfied with the number of pages I read, even though I know that in order to reach my goal of 1000 pages read in the end of the read-a-thon, I’ll have to read more pages per day.
Yesterday, I haven’t participated in the challenge because I think my bookshelves are just plain boring. The only thing that’s there are books, an owl and an Eiffel Tower.
pages read: 70
Total number of pages read: 139
If you’re participating, how is it going and are you happy with your progress?
As you already know, Bout of Books Read-a-thon started yesterday and I am participating for the first time.
I already said I am reading 7 books at time (you can see which ones here), but I guess 7 wasn’t enough for me, so I went and puchased an ebook version of The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson.
The thing is, I was in such a great mood to read this book that I just had to go and read it (so far it’s amazing) and even though I don’t usually prefer paying more then 13$ for an ebook, I knew that that was the only way to have it in my hands as soon as I purchase it (plus I had a 25$ Amazon GC so thank Heaven for that 😀 ).
pages read: 69
I also participated in the #boutofbooks #insixwords challenge.
These are six words I used to introduce myself: Cat lover. Book reviewer. Dreamer. Believer.
If you’re participating, share your reading process in comments.
If you’re not participating, feel free to tell me what you’re reading at the moment and how you’re liking it.
