"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Care and Handling of Roses With Thorns
Publication Date: August 2
Thirty-six-year-old Gal Garner lives a regimented life. Her job teaching biology and her struggle with kidney disease keep her toggling between the high school, the hospital, and her home on a strict schedule. Only at home, in her garden, does Gal come alive. But even her passion has a highly structured goal: Gal wants to win Queen of Show in a major competition. Then, one afternoon, Gal's teenaged niece Riley, the daughter of her estranged sister, arrives. Unannounced. And neither one of them will ever be the same.
What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

This book doesn't sound like something I would read but I love the cover!!
Sorry, guys! This didn't post at midnight as scheduled!
I was at my indie bookstore on Monday and they were singing the praises of this book while I was there. I hope you don't have to wait too long.
Oh, I really love the sound of this one! Thanks!
My post didn't post when it was scheduled either! Weird.
This looks like a good book, and I love the cover.
Oh, I love the cover on this book. The colors and the symbolism. Nice pick.
I almost forgot about this one - I heard about it long ago....on my list, of course.
Sounds wonderful!! My kind of book!!
This one sounds very good, and such a pretty cover. I'm adding to my TBR!
This sounds like it could be a really sweet story. Hope you'll enjoy it when it releases!
Jill, The Care and Handling of Toses with Thorns is going on my TBR right now. I have a huge rose garden and I love fiction that has a dose of something fun that I can relate too.
Nice pick! A good summer read for sure.
Thanks for hosting WOW :)
Ahh, I'm an idiot and just tried to link up to last week's Wow, then when I couldn't I went around commenting on people's Wow for last week...This is what happens to teachers during FCAT week in Florida...we're so dead we can't focus on anything else. OOPS!!
This is my fourth week and I thank you for hosting this. It is a great way to learn about books!
First I've heard of this. Thanks for sharing!
This one sounds great! I love the cover too.
I love to garden so that one really caught my attention. I may have to put it on my wish list
It's still Wednesday until Midnight. But still, darn technology! ;) Thanks for sharing!

So excited for my WoW for this week!
The cover is REALLY pretty... I love it.
Hope I just didn't link twice. Computer delay. This book is right up my alley. I love contemporary fiction and the cover is beautiful. Thanks for sharing :)
Not usually the type of book that I go for but still looks pretty interesting :) My WoW.
Just the synopsis makes me interested in the book and what will happen. (:
Aleksandra and her WoW
This one sounds beautiful! Great pick! :]
The title is certainly tantalizing! :-)
I don't know if I would read this one but I hope you enjoy it :D
I don't know if I would read this one--but I love the cover. For some reason even though I have not heard of the author-I swear I have heard of this book somewhere before. Hope you enjoy!!

The cover is perfect for the title and synopsis! Thanks for sharing!
Sounds intriguing - pretty cover.
Ellen – My WoW
This sounds really good. And I love that cover. I don't read very much adult fiction, but I think I'll make room for this one.
This sounds really interesting. I love these kinds of books. The cover is really nice as well!
Wow a lot going on in this novel. I like the sound of it and the cover though. Adding it to my list :) Happy Reading!
This does sound really good, thank you for the suggestion!
Liking the sound of this! So many good books are coming out this year, don't know how I'm going to read them all.
Thanks for such a great meme!
Sounds mysterious! And that's a great cover!!!
Juli @ Universe in Words
This is my favorite meme! Genius.
Thanks for sharing
looks like an awesome book! :)
This looks like a great read! I'll be adding it to my ever-growing pile!
mhm...A bit too grown up for me, I think-I'd probably read it though if it was from Riley's point of view :)
This books sounds really good! Onto the to be read list it goes!
This is a great meme. I have discovered so many new books from these that I had no idea about!
Adding to my TBR! Is it YA?
Yay! I hope you all enjoy it. I can't wait for my "book birthday." The main character's a rose breeder, but she's also an uncompromising educator-- so I think if you're a teacher or know a teacher, you'll really like it, too.
As a 39 year old science teacher, this sounds like something I might enjoy! Thanks for the heads up!
Oh wow this is a gorgeous cover!
What a gorgeous cover!
This is my first time joining in as I am a new Book Blogger. Thanks so much. :)
OMG! As if I didn't have enough books to wait for ... I start following the links and find more and more that I'd be interested in reading.
Care and Handling sounds like a good book - I'm going to look forward to that one also, :)
Haven't been here for a while, but I'm happy to post tonight! Happy reading, everyone
Not something I'd read but seems like a good book nonetheless :)
Sounds like a good book, the vagueness intrigues me.
Check out my Waiting on at
Book Crook Confessions
Its such a pretty cover. To bad the blurb doesn't make me want to pick it to read. Thanks for sharing your wow book. My wow book is here at Paranormal Goddess Book Blog - My Waiting On Wednesday Post
Great meme! I'm excited to participate.
This looks intriguing!! Awesome pick.
Rebecca @ Vicariously!
This looks really interesting. Haven't heard of it. Thanks!
