"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Vacationers


"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:


The Vacationers
By Emma Straub

Publication Date: May 29

From Amazon:

For the Posts, a two-week trip to the Balearic island of Mallorca with their extended family and friends is a celebration: Franny and Jim are observing their 35th wedding anniversary, and their daughter, Sylvia, has graduated from high school. The sunlit island, its mountains and beaches, its tapas and tennis courts, also promise an escape from the tensions simmering at home in Manhattan. But all does not go according to plan: over the course of the vacation, secrets come to light, old and new humiliations are experienced, childhood rivalries resurface, and ancient wounds are exacerbated.


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

I love the quirky cover.

Alice J. Atorly said...

That actually sounds like it would make me nervous...a 35-year-long marriage potentially being hurt over old wounds and secrets makes me sad. :/ Why are you psyched about it? Something about the author?

Sounds good! It would be fun to read now in the winter for a "get away" book even though things don't go as planned

Your book sounded like something I would like to do not just read--until I got to the end of the blurb. I'll settle for reading!

Sounds like lots of drama! Not for the faint of heart. I'm not into drama right now, but by May, who knows! I hope you enjoy it!

A Vacation gone wrong sounds like a very intriguing dramatic read!
