Waiting on Wednesday - Displacement

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Home is supposed to be a place you belong. It's supposed to be parents who are there and siblings who bug you and a life that feels comfortable. It’s not supposed to be an absentee mother or a drowned sister. But that's Vera's reality, and she can’t stand it anymore. So she runs. She ends up in an old mining town in the middle of the California desert. It's hot, it's dusty, and it's as isolated as Vera feels. As she goes about setting up her life, she also unwittingly starts the process of healing and–eventually– figuring out what home might really mean for her. (from Goodreads)

This just one more book that I am anticipating reading. I read Because I Am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas and knew that I would continue to follow her work. This one sounds like it will be another heartbreaker.


  1. That does sound like a heartbreaker! Which usually means I will read it :)

  2. It does sound like an intense book. Looks good. Great pick

  3. Sounds really powerful! Here is mine

  4. I haven't read this author before but I like the sound of this one. I may have to check out her other book first.

  5. Hey there, I'm your latest follower. I've just started collaborating on a new book review blog so I'm glad to have found yours. I've added the link to our blog.
