Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.
Do you have a favorite genre or do you only read in one? I tend to jump all over the place with what I read but mostly between romantic suspense, contemporary romance, and historical. My favorite historical period to read are set in the Regency period, and Kristi Ann Hunter excels and bringing that era to life on the page. Plus, in the series that will wrap up next month, she takes a look at some of the people society preferred to sweep under the rug. Those are just a couple of reasons why I can’t wait for A Pursuit of Home.
