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 already have almost 200 books on my 2015 release Goodreads shelf, but I wanted to add more so I started perusing NetGalley and came across today’s WoW pick. The bright cover grabbed my attention first and then the summary solidified the deal. I REALLY want to read This Raging Light by Estelle Laure. My students next school year will adore this book.

Summary (From Goodreads):
“A funny, poetic, big-hearted reminder that life can—and will—take us all by surprise.”—Jennifer E. Smith, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight Can the best thing happen at the worst time? Her dad went crazy. Her mom left town. She has bills to pay and a little sister to look after. Now is not the time for level-headed seventeen-year-old Lucille to fall in love. But love—messy, inconvenient love—is what she’s about to experience when she falls for Digby Jones, her best friend’s brother. With blazing longing that builds to a fever pitch, Estelle Laure’s soulful debut will keep readers hooked and hoping until the very last page.
