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:
I Take You by Eliza Kennedy
Expected Release Date: May 5, 2015
Brilliantly executed and endlessly funny, this page-turning debut showcases one of the most winning, irrepressible voices since Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones.
“I’m getting married.”
“It’s a disaster.”
Meet Lily Wilder–New Yorker, lawyer and the luckiest woman in the world. She has a dream job, friends who adore her, a family full of charismatic and loving women, and a total catch of a fiance.
Also? She has “no” business getting married.
Lily’s fiance Will is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive, fond of a good drink (or five) and completely incapable of being faithful to just one man. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he really know her? As the wedding approaches, Lily’s nights–and mornings, and afternoons–of booze, laughter and questionable decisions become a growing reminder that the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake yet.
“Bridget Jones’s Diary” meets “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” in this joyous and ribald debut, introducing a fabulously self-assured protagonist whose choices raise fresh questions about gender politics, monogamy and the true meaning of fidelity.

This book has actually been on my radar for months and months, and I’m so excited that it’s finally getting close to the release date. I first heard about it on the Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast, and it sounds like something I will totally devour (despite really hating Where’d You Go, Bernadette). Early buzz pegs this one as super funny and super smart, which is right in my sweet spot.
What are you waiting on this week?
