"Waiting On" Wednesday: This Is Where We Live

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

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

This Is Where We Live
By Janelle Brown
Publication Date: June 15

From Random House:

A novel about hopes, dreams, ambition, art, love, real estate, reality, disillusionment, compromise, and reinvention. From the author of the national bestseller All We Ever Wanted Was Everything comes another page-turner that catches the Zeitgeist: a story about subprime mortgages, ruthless Hollywood economics, and the unravelling of a young marriage.


What's your "waiting on" pick this week?
