Waiting on Wednesday #9

This is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. This weekly feature is to showcase upcoming releases that we're excited about.

My Pick
Book Link: Goodreads

Synopsis from Goodreads
Nat's not an alcoholic. She doesn't have a problem. Everybody parties, everybody does stupid things, like get in their car when they can barely see. Still, with six months of court-ordered AA meetings required, her days of vodka-filled water bottles are over.

Unfortunately her old friends want the party girl or nothing. Even her up-for-anything ex seems more interested in rehashing the past than actually helping Nat.

But then a recovering alcoholic named Joe inserts himself into Nat’s life and things start looking up. Joe is funny, smart, and calls her out in a way no one ever has.

He’s also older. A lot older.

Nat’s connection to Joe is overwhelming but so are her attempts to fit back into her old world, all while battling the constant urge to crack a bottle and blur that one thing she's been desperate to forget.

Now in order to make a different kind of life, Natalie must pull together her broken parts and learn to fight for herself.

My Reaction
Christa Desir is an auto-read author for me, so to see this book and that cover with a release date in 2016, makes me sad. But really, gimmie this book. It looks like classic Christa, which makes me super excited for it. I honestly don't know how I am going to wait seven more months for it. It looks dark, gritty and realistic, in other words, right up my alley!

So what books are you most looking forward to?


  1. I am definitely looking forward to this one too! It sounds pretty good. The cover is very interesting! Have a great week. :)

    1. I'm really liking the cover a lot as well. I cannot wait to read this one!

  2. Okay, I almost didn't read the synopsis because I had a horrible moment of cover snobbishness, but oooohhh it sounds so good! I've never heard of this author either. But yeah definitely looks like it'll be a hard-hitting book - I love those!

    1. She writes very hard hitting, gritty books that are not to everyone's taste, but I love them.

  3. I've not heard of this one, Alexia! It sounds like one of those heartbreakers. I hope you enjoy it when you read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a lovely week :)

    1. You know how much I love those heart-breakers!

      But seriously, I'm so stoked to read this book.
