WoW [121]

Waiting on Wednesday [WoW] is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Young Widows Club by Alexandra Coutts
Expected Publication: November 10, 2015
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux BYR

First came love, then came marriage, and then...

For seventeen-year-old Tam, running off to marry her musician boyfriend is the ideal escape from her claustrophobic high-school life on the island, and the ultimate rebellion against her father and stepmother. But when Tam becomes a widow just weeks later, the shell-shocked teen is forced to find her way forward by going back to the life she thought she’d moved beyond—even as her struggle to deal with her grief is forcing her to reinvent herself and reach out to others in ways she never imagined.

Why I Can’t Wait
Definitely something different and I’m curious to see how the story goes.

Feel free to link me to yours.


  1. Oh wow - seeing that title alone I expected this one to be NA, but since the protagonist is 17, it's more likely YA or a mix between both. Awesomely - I'll need to keep this one on my radar. Thanks for sharing it :)

  2. Really no to interested in the Love story due to the fact I'm a guy, but nice WOW.

  3. I, too, thought we'd be talking about young widows in the 20's or 30's, but wow. Hope you enjoy it!

  4. This sounds like a mature YA, great pick!

  5. Oh, yes, now I am definitely curious. Not what a teen would expect to have happen.

    Here is mine: “EVIL NEVER DIES”

  6. This book sounds pretty good. But I think it will make me cry buckets, so I am not sure if I wanted to read this one or not.

  7. This sound very interesting and love the beautiful cover :)
