Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. (Button courtesy of Bewitched Bookworms.)

Here's what I'm looking forward to:

Title: Joy for Beginners
Author: Erica Bauermeister
Release Date: June 9

From the author's website:
A group of seven women gather for an outdoor candlelit dinner in Seattle to celebrate their friend Kate’s recovery from cancer. Wineglass in hand, Kate makes a pact with them: to start her new lease on life, she’ll overcome her fears and go white-water rafting down the Grand Canyon. But if she goes, each of them must also do one thing in the next year that is new or difficult or scary – and Kate gets to choose their challenges.


  1. Sounds like a good book.

    I am waiting for The Violets of is out of stock at Amazon uk.


  2. Nope, I would not make that agreement with anyone! I'll choose my own challenges, thank you very much!

  3. That sounds like a good book. I always want to go white water rafting but get nervous thinking about it! Thanks for sharing!

  4. not my usual read but it sounds really good. though i second the commenter above, i would not agree either. i would want to choose my own new/scary challenge.

    Please stop by my WoW this week.


  5. This looks like a great book. I'll have to add it to my wishlist.
