“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine!
It’s been a while since I’ve done a WOW post. And I’m not sure this really counts as a true WOW post. The books I can hardly wait to read haven’t been published yet, but I have received an ARC of both of them. The problem is that life won’t leave me alone so I can read them. As soon as school is out for the holidays and we get back from picking up my youngest son from his graduation from AIT, (Advanced Individualized Training to be an Army Medic) I’m planting myself on the couch with both those books and a stack of others. I’m not moving until I’m done.
