"Waiting On" Wednesday: Tumbleweeds


"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:

Tumbleweeds
By Leila Meacham
Publication Date: June 19

From Amazon:

TUMBLEWEEDS is the story of three young friends--the saint, the sinner, and the angel--growing up together in the sort of small Texas Panhandle town that lives and dies by its Friday night football games. A fateful event casts a long shadow over these three intertwined lives and leaves the reader turning the pages desperately to see how it all plays out.

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

Bookluvr Mindy said...

This actually sounds pretty good but I haven't heard of it before now. Love the cover!

theparanormalprincess said...

Is this from the same author as Roses? The covers look so similar it must be in the same series? I've been wanting to read roses just for the cover and the name lol. I may just have to give them a try even if they are'nt by the same author.

Thanks for allowing us to be apart of this and share with everyone.
