Waiting On Wednesday (116)


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

Landline
By Rainbow Rowell
Release Date: July 8, 2014
Summary: Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems besides the point now.

Maybe that was always besides the point.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .

Is that what she’s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

RAINBOW ROWELL HAS A NEW BOOK. Please excuse me while I go freak out. But seriously, I'm freaking out. I absolutely loved Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, so you could say I'm kind of excited to see what else she has in store for us. I think this one is going to be an adult novel (she's written some adult fiction before the two I just mentioned) and boy does it sound good. I absolutely can't wait to read this one when it finally comes out!

  6. I read my first Rainbow Rowell book a few weeks ago and really liked it, so I may get this. It's an interesting premise too.

  8. I saw the cover reveal to this a few weeks back! I love love love the cover and the synopsis sounds awesome! Also i might be a little biased over the main character as I haven't come across a "Georgie" before :D.

    Some great picks this week! All three look particularly enjoyable, I think Dear Killer has me most excited.

    Thanks for sharing.
