Waiting on Wednesday #225 - Every Exquisite Thing & Break Me Like a Promise

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Be sure to post a link to your Waiting on Wednesday below!

This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...

Author: Matthew Quick 
Release Date: May 31, 2016 
Published by: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers 

Nanette O'Hare is an unassuming teen who has played the role of dutiful daughter, hardworking student, and star athlete for as long as she can remember. But when a beloved teacher gives her his worn copy of The Bugglegum Reaper -- a mysterious, out-of-print cult classic -- the rebel within Nanette awakens.

As she befriends the reclusive author, falls in love with a young troubled poet, and attempts to insert her true self into the world with wild abandon, Nanette learns the hard way that rebellion sometimes comes at a high price. (Summary from Goodreads)

I can't wait to see what incredible coming-of-age story Quick has created for Nanette.

No one is unbreakable.

All Magnolia Vickers has ever wanted was to follow father's path as head of the Family Business. But new legislation is poised to destroy the Family's operations in the black-market organ trade and Maggie's recent behavior has wrecked the business -- savvy reputation she's worked her whole life to build.

She's given an ultimatum: shape up or step aside.

Then Maggie messes up: she downloads a virus onto her father's computer, and must sneak off-estate for repair. When Alex, a tech whiz, uncovers the type of information on the machine, he offers MAggie a choice: her Family can give him a kidney, or he'll irreparably scramble the data. Maggie agrees, but has no intention of keeping her promise or ever seeing him again. That night Alex shows up at her Family estate with copies of confidential Family files and a shocking revelation-the kidney is for him.

The Vickers aren't willing to let Alex out of their sight, so he moves onto their estate and Maggie is assigned to be his keeper. A task she resents and he enjoys making as challenging as possible. But procuring black market organs is becoming increasingly difficult, and as Alex's health declines, she's surprised to find herself falling for him.

Like it or not, Maggie must accept that if she wants to save Alex's life and carve out a place in the new legalized organ business, she's going to have to fight for both. (Summary from Goodreads)

Check out my review of Book 1:
Hold Me Like a Breath

I really enjoyed the 1st book in this series, and have been looking forward to the next one (it seems like) forever! It was a very different story then I usually read. 

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Oh I need both of these :) The first one isn't my typical read but I really enjoyed Silver Linings Playbook! Thanks for sharing, adding these to my TBR :)
    Here's my WoW.

  2. Both books sounds so captivating...with so much intensity, that it would be hard to put them down. Thanks for sharing. Here's mine: “BEHIND CLOSED DOORS”
