Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It allows bloggers to highlight upcoming releases that they are excited for! So without further ado here is my pick!

i was hereAuthor: Gayle Forman

Publisher: Simon and Schuester UK

Expected Release Date: January 29th

Genre: Contemporary

Summary: From the bestselling author of If I Stay – this summer’s YA blockbuster film.

This characteristically powerful novel follows eighteen-year-old Cody Reynolds in the months following her best friend’s shocking suicide.

As Cody numbly searches for answers as to why Meg took her own life, she begins a journey of self-discovery which takes her to a terrifying precipice, and forces her to question not only her relationship with the Meg she thought she knew, but her own understanding of life, love, death and forgiveness.

A phenomenally moving story, I Was Here explores the sadly all-too-familar issue of suicide and self-harm, addressing it in an authentic way with sensitivity and honesty. (Via goodreads.)

Why I’m Excited: I love Gayle Forman. Her books are also so powerful and poignant and she never fails to make me teary so I am very much looking forward to this!
