Waiting on Wednesday: The Singles by Meredith Goldstein

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

The Singles by Meredith Goldstein

Expected Release Date: April 24, 2012

Bee wanted the perfect wedding; she got the “Singles.”  Back in her single days—before she met the man of her dreams—Beth “Bee” Evans hated being forced to attend weddings solo. Determined to spare her friends the same humiliation, she invites everyone on her list with a guest. Much to her chagrin, however, Hannah, Vicki, Rob, Joe, and Nancy insist upon attending Bee’s lavish Chesapeake Bay nuptials alone. The frustrated bride dubs them the “Minus-Ones” and their collective decision wreaks unintended havoc on her otherwise perfectly planned wedding weekend. One of today’s most popular relationship columnists, Meredith Goldstein, has penned a sparkling debut novel that chronicles the promises and disappointments of love and friendship with humor, compassion, and wisdom.

(summary via Goodreads)

As someone who has attended more than her fair share of weddings solo, something about this book resonates with me on a very basic level.  As we enter wedding season, this book’s release is perfect (and, I’d wager, planned).  Newly single again myself, I’ve got a handful of weddings to attend this spring, and it looks like I’ll be hitting them solo.

But enough about me.  That was almost too personal for this here blog!  Back to the book.  If done well (and I have a feeling this might be done very well), this book will be a total trip to read.  I can’t wait.

What are you waiting on this week?
