Waiting On Wednesday



Waiting On Wednesday is brought to you by Breaking The Spine. This meme spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Lauren Weisberger - Last Night At Chateau Marmont

Book Blurb: Brooke loved reading the dishy celebrity gossip rag Last Night. That is, until her marriage became a weekly headline.Brooke was drawn to the soulful, enigmatic Julian Alter the very first time she heard him perform “Hallelujah” at a dark East Village dive bar.Now five years married, Brooke balances two jobs—as a nutritionist at NYU Hospital and as a consultant to an Upper East Side girls’ school, where privilege gone wrong and disordered eating run rampant—in order to help support her husband’s dream of making it in the music world.Things are looking up when after years of playing Manhattan clubs and toiling as an A&R intern, Julian finally gets signed by Sony. Although no one’s promising that the album will ever hit the airwaves, Julian is still dedicated to logging in long hours at the recording studio. All that changes after Julian is asked to perform on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno—and is catapulted to stardom, literally overnight. Amazing opportunities begin popping up almost daily—a new designer wardrobe, a tour with Maroon 5, even a Grammy performance.At first the newfound fame is fun—who wouldn’t want to stay at the Chateau Marmont or visit the set of one of television’s hottest shows? Yet it seems that Brooke’s sweet husband—the man who can’t handle hot showers and wears socks to bed—is increasingly absent, even on those rare nights they’re home together. When rumors about Brooke and Julian swirl in the tabloid magazines, she begins to question the truth of her marriage and is forced to finally come to terms with what she thinks she wants—and what she actually needs.



Nora Roberts - Happy Ever After

Book Blurb: As the public face of Vows wedding planning company, Parker Brown has an uncanny knack for fulfilling every bride's vision. She just can't see where her own life is headed. Mechanic Malcomb Kavanaugh loves figuring out how things work, and Parker is no exception. Both know that moving from minor flirtation to major hook-up is a serious step. Parker's business risks have always paid off, but now she'll have to take the chance of a lifetime with her heart...

Debbie Macomber - 1022 Evergreen Place

This one is the 10th book in the Cedar Cove series. I can't believe that I can't find a blurb on any website for this book and since it is a Mira book, Harlequin doesn't even have it listed yet.

I love the Cedar Cove series though, so that should be enough for me to pre-order this book.

Here's the link to most of Debbie's current books

I'm waiting on the new Cedar Cove book too. I think the one before this was out last Aug. or Sept. so maybe this will be the same time this year.
I'm also reminded I need to read the third book in the Nora Roberts series :)

Cass said...

I have heard of that series by Nora Robert's. It's in my TBR at the moment. I haven't ever actually seen a full romance-type series before!

I have not heard of Last Night at Chateau Marmont. Sounds like an interesting and very modern novel. I may have to check that one out.

Here's mine: Matched by Ally Condie

I've never read a book by Lauren Weisberger, but this one does sound like one I would enjoy. I'm on the sixth book in the Cedar Cove series. Looks like I have some catching up to do! Nice picks.
