Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s designed for bloggers to spotlight the upcoming releases that they simply can’t wait to read.
I’ve said it plenty of times: Cancer books aren’t always for me. I do make exceptions, however, and I think I might with Julie Halpern’s upcoming release. I like the spin on this one because it’s not from the point of view of a cancer patient. I haven’t read any of her books, so hopefully this one will be a good one to start with.
