"Waiting On" Wednesday: 150 Pounds


"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:

150 Pounds
By Kate Rockland
Publication Date: January 17

From the publisher:

A smartly written novel of two women starting at opposite ends of the scale—and finding compromise and friendship in their journey towards 150 pounds. In the fast-paced life of blogging, two women stand out: Alexis Allbright, of Skinny Chick, and Shoshana Weiner, who writes Fat and Fabulous. Both have over five million loyal readers. Both are hungry for success. But the similarities stop there. When both appear as panelists on a popular talk show, their lives intersect in ways neither could have imagined. 


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