Waiting on Wednesday (47)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bookish meme created and hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.

Each week, bloggers shine the spotlight on upcoming book titles that they are waiting on. This is one of my favorite memes, and you've probably noticed it as a frequent feature on my blog.

It's pretty simple to participate in Waiting on Wednesday:
  • Create your own Waiting on Wednesday post that features an upcoming title (or titles) - I usually only go with one book a week because seeing all the titles can be a bit overwhelming for me.
  • Be sure to credit Jill somewhere in your post (see how I credited her above?)
  • Link up to the Linky on Jill's blog so that others can see your post.

Waiting On...

Title: This Raging Light
Author: Estelle Laure
Publisher: HMH Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: December 22, 2015 
Can the best thing happen at the worst time?

Her dad went crazy. Her mom left town. She has bills to pay and a little sister to look after. Now is not the time for level-headed seventeen-year-old Lucille to fall in love. But love—messy, inconvenient love—is what she's about to experience when she falls for Digby Jones, her best friend's brother. With blazing longing that builds to a fever pitch, Estelle Laure's soulful debut will keep readers hooked and hoping until the very last page.

Why I'm Waiting...

First of all, I don't know if I've ever seen a book with a synopsis like this one before. This Raging Light really seems like it's going to be one of those emotional roller coaster kind of reads because there's a bit of everything in it. Poor Lucille seems like everything is stacked up against her, and then she has to go ahead and fall in love?! Color me intrigued!

Now... lucky for me... I don't have to wait too much longer to read this promising debut novel because HMH hooked me up with an eARC, and I am just counting down the days until I get to it. So be on the lookout for a review because I can promise you that there will be one.

What Are You Waiting On...

And now we get to the part of my Waiting on Wednesday post where I leave everything to you, my lovely readers. Tell me! Are you also waiting on This Raging Light? Or are there other books you're waiting to get your hands on? Feel free to let me know in the comments!
