Waiting On Wednesday (25)


This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of! 

In Honor
By Jessi Kirby
Release Date: May 8th 2012
Summary: Honor receives her brother’s last letter from Iraq three days after learning that he died, and opens it the day his fellow Marines lay the flag over his casket. Its contents are a complete shock: concert tickets to see Kyra Kelly, her favorite pop star and Finn's celebrity crush. In his letter, he jokingly charged Honor with the task of telling Kyra Kelly that he was in love with her.
Grief-stricken and determined to grant Finn's last request, she rushes to leave immediately. But she only gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn's best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn't seen him in ages, thanks to a falling out between the two guys, but Rusty is much the same as Honor remembers him: arrogant, stubborn. . . and ruggedly good looking. Neither one is what the other would ever look for in a road trip partner, but the two of them set off together, on a voyage that makes sense only because it doesn’t. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn—but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?

I was a HUGE fan of Moonglass by Jessi Kirby, so I'm really excited for her new book! It's sounds so sad, yet so good. Rusty sounds like the perfect leading man and Honor seems like someone you could really root for in the story. It sounds like the young adult version of a Nicholas Sparks novel, and that's exactly how I like them. I'm so excited to read it and it's going to be so hard to wait that long for this book. Hopefully the time will pass quickly!

  12. I barely read any contemps, but every now and then I add one to my TBR list and hope I find time to read it. This is one of those contemps I want to read! I have a soft spot for stories about anyone from the military. I think this will be a really sweet and emotional book. Great pick!

  18. Great choice! I'm still debating on whether to add this to the TBR list or not. I have a hard time getting through the more emotional books like this one, but I may still give it a shot. Thanks for stopping by earlier!
