"Waiting On" Wednesday: I Still Dream About You, Honey

"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:

I Still Dream About You, Honey
By Fannie Flagg
Publication Date: November 9

From Amazon:

Though her friends think Maggie has the perfect life, she's actually perfectly miserable. The former Miss Alabama is worried about how her life has turned out--she's given up on her dream of living in a beautiful home like Crestview, and instead is a real estate agent in Birmingham. But just when Maggie begins to wonder if there's much point in going on, her life takes a wild turn, and she finds herself catapulted into one surprising discovery after the next. As Maggie learns valuable lessons about the nature of friendship, the challenges of modern life, and the dangers of impossible dreams, she starts to see how much more there is to life than what can be listed in a Miss Alabama bio. Bestselling author Fannie Flagg's trademark comic flair is out in full force in this fabulous new novel about the unpredictability of life.

I go back and forth between wanting Fannie Flagg to write faster because I so love her books, or to stay with the same pace because then her books are such treasures...I cannot wait for this one!

Alison said...

I've never read Fannie Flagg. This sound interesting although I think I'd like to read other books by her before going for this one.

You have to love Fannie Flagg! This one's already on my calendar.
