Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

I missed posting a Waiting on Wednesday post for last week!  I guess I just got caught up in other things and it slipped my mind…oops.  Anyway, I’m focusing on a book that I’ve been excited to read for quite a while now, and it releases soon so there isn’t a really long wait!

Author: E. Katherine Kottaras

Publication Date: November 3rd, 2015

Publisher: St. Martin’s Press

Summary from Goodreads: An emotional contemporary YA novel about love, loss, and having the courage to chase the life you truly want.

Reeling from her mother’s death, Georgia has a choice: become lost in her own pain, or enjoy life right now, while she still can. She decides to start really living for the first time and makes a list of fifteen ways to be brave – all the things she’s wanted to do but never had the courage to try. As she begins doing the things she’s always been afraid to do – including pursuing her secret crush, she discovers that life doesn’t always go according to plan. Sometimes friendships fall apart and love breaks your heart. But once in a while, the right person shows up just when you need them most – and you learn that you’re stronger and braver than you ever imagined.


This definitely sounds like it’s going to be an emotional read, but it also gives me the vibe that it’s going to be beautifully written and one of those life changing books that leaves you thinking about it even months after you’ve read it.  Either way, I plan on having some tissues ready for when I read this one, because I can tell it’s going to be a tearjerker.

Do you think you’ll read this one when it’s released?
