"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Actress


"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 Actress
By Amy Sohn

Publication Date: July 1

From Amazon:

When Hollywood heartthrob Steven Weller pulls Maddy Freed out of obscurity for a starring part in his newest, Oscar-worthy film, she feels her career roaring onto the express track. Steven’s professional attention soon turns personal as they are thrown together amid Europe’s Old World charm, and Maddy allows herself to tumble headlong into a fairytale romance with the world’s most eligible bachelor. She knows there’s no truth to the gay rumors that have followed him for years.

Yet what is it that Steven sees in Maddy that he has not seen in his string of past girlfriends? Steven tells her he is drawn to her stunning gift as an actress—her ability to inhabit a character so seamlessly, so convincingly, that it is nearly impossible to tell she is playing a role—a compliment that becomes more ominous as their marriage progresses. Ultimately, as Maddy’s own happiness and success grow intertwined with her new husband’s, she cannot afford to ask too many questions about Steven’s complicated past. But can she ignore her inner voice, and her instincts about her own worth?



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

This sounds interesting but honestly I kinda hope it turns out that the guy is gay, I think that would be a cool twist. =)

This looks great! I agree with the other commenter though, I hope he's gay and it ends up being a more twisted cover up story. Good pick!

Shane Morgan said...

I haven't read a book like the Actress in a while so i'm curious about the story. Great pick!

Happy Wednesday!

Oh wow, this one sounds really good! I love the idea that her being able to "inhibit" other characters could be dangerous for her with a husband like that! Definitely gonna check this one out! Thanks for sharing :)

Throughout the grand pattern of things you actually receive a B+ for effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually confused me ended up being in the facts. As as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more accurate here. Having said that, allow me say to you precisely what did deliver the results. The text is certainly very powerful and this is most likely the reason why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can notice the leaps in logic you come up with, I am not necessarily convinced of exactly how you seem to connect your ideas that make your final result. For the moment I shall yield to your issue but trust in the future you actually link your dots better....Cardsharing Server
