Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa of Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week I couldn't pick just one as there are son many great books coming out on January 2, 2018 ...
Worldwide phenomenon Anna Todd (The After series, Imagines) presents a modern retelling of one of her favorite stories - Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. Recast in the modern world, longtime and fresh fans of the beloved classic will fall in love with the March sisters all over again, told with the all the romance, sass, and drama that Anna is famous for.
Why this book?
Little Women is one of my all time favorite books and I just can"t pass up an opportunity to read a modern retelling of this tale ~ especially by Ann Todd! I am going to get it in audio format as January is going to be a busy month and I am pretty sure I won't be able to put this one down!
Emma is used to things going her way. Her father is headmaster of her prestigious boarding school, her friends take her advice as gospel, and she's convinced that a relationship with her long-time crush is on the horizon.
As it turns out, Emma hasn't seen anything yet. When she finds an old book in an abandoned library, things really start going Emma's way: anything she writes in the book comes true.
But the power of the book is not without consequences, and Emma soon realizes that she isn't the only one who knows about it. Someone is determined to take it from her―and they'll stop at nothing to succeed.
A new boy in school―the arrogant, aloof, and irritatingly handsome Darcy de Winter―becomes Emma's unlikely ally as secrets are revealed and danger creeps ever closer.
Why this book?
I just started reading The Book Jumper (book 1 of this series) and I'm really liking it so far. It's a unique story and very well written. I can't wait to find out what will happen in the second book. I'm also pretty excited that I won't have to wait a whole year to find out!
