Waiting on Wednesday

Hosted by

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

For this week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick I have chosen

Two or Three Things I Forgot to Tell You by Joyce Carol Oates

which will be published by Harper Teen on 21st August.

It wasn’t like she had not warned us.

It wasn’t like she had not prepared us.

We’d known that something was wrong those last several months.

But then, Tink hasn’t actually vanished. Tink is gone, and yet—she is here somewhere, even if we can’t see her.

Tink? Are you—here?

I came across Two or Three Things I Forgot to Tell You a while back when I was searching through the Harper Teen website for upcoming releases and straight away I wanted to read it. OK, so I don’t absolutely love the cover of this book but the short, almost abrupt, synopsis immediately got my attention and I was desperate to know more about Tink and what happened to her. This book actually comes out a few days before my birthday so I might just have to treat myself!

What is your WoW pick for this week? I would love to hear!

    This should be interesting, I’ve read some of her adult books, they are awfully dark and literary. This does sound intriguing, though, def curious. Maybe I’ll let you go first, Kel!

      This one definitely sounds dark, I think I get the idea of what’s happened to Tink. I noticed last night that you’d marked this as to read on Goodreads, great minds and all that! I have never read anything from this author, is her work pretty hard going?
