"Waiting On" Wednesday: How It All Began
"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:
By Penelope Lively
Publication Date: January 5
From Library Journal:
A chance encounter between a retired schoolteacher and a petty thief sets off an unexpected chain of events. A marriage is undone by a misdirected cell phone call revealing an affair, for instance, while an interior designer finds the perfect business partner and an old-timey historian gets an idea for a snappy miniseries. The moral—life always has other plans for us—should be beautifully conveyed by Man Booker Award winner Lively.
What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

How It All Began kind of reminds me of the Butterfly Effect? At least, I think that's what it's implying. It sounds like an interesting read! It's always fun to think about how we're all interconnected in one way or another (6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon lol)
