"Waiting On" Wednesday: Cruel Beautiful World


"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:

Cruel Beautiful World

By Caroline Leavitt

Publication Date: October 4

From Amazon:

 It's 1969, and 16-year-old Lucy is about to run away with a much older man to live off the grid in rural Pennsylvania, a rash act that will have vicious repercussions for both her and her older sister, Charlotte. As Lucy's default caretaker for most of their lives, Charlotte's youth has been marked by the burden of responsibility, but never more so than when Lucy's dream of a rural paradise turns into nightmare.  

With gorgeous prose and indelible characters, Cruel Beautiful World examines the intricate, infinitesimal distance between seduction and love, loyalty and duty, and what happens when you're responsible for things you can't fix.

  3. This week I'm waiting on a series of research, as a german study on how much and what people read was supposed to be published every three years so one could see the positive or negative trends in reading behaviour, but since 2000 there was no new research in this series and the latest other study on this subject is already 8 years old as well. But I need some new information for my master thesis.

    Thanks for this idea of waiting on wednesday,
