Waiting on Wednesday (16)

Waiting on Wednesday was a weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine
for sharing upcoming releases we're highly anticipating.
Now, Tressa at Wishful Endings hosts Can't Wait Wednesday that is based off of WoW to continue the fun!

Fast Lane
by Kristen Ashley
Release Date: October 15, 2019
Genre: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
- - -
They were the gentlemen bad boys of rock. Forming in a garage in a small town in Indiana. Taking their licks on the road. Going balls to the wall until they made their big break. 

And then Preacher McCade and the Roadmasters redefined rock and roll.

Guided by their tortured lead singer and songwriter, the Roadmasters changed the face of music in the 80s and 90s. And on their journey to becoming one of the most enduring bands in history—dogged by rumors and myths and fueled by drugs and booze—the Roadmasters ad one touchstone.


Preacher's muse, the love of his life, and the band's moral compass, from the beginning, Lyla is along for the ride. 

But with fame and acclaim in their grasp, they've entered the fast lane. 

And they didn't know it, but they were headed for a crash.

Why? I am forever looking forward to books from Kristen Ashley even if I am 10+ books behind. My hopes are that Fast Lane will bring me classic KA goodness as it's been so long since my last hit and I'm in need of some lovely alpha hero x badass/sassy heroine dynamics. Plus, there are rock star musicians... what more could I ask for??

The How & The Why 
by Cynthia Hand
Release Date: November 5, 2019

Publisher: Harper Teen

Today Melly had us writing letters to our babies...

Cassandra McMurtrey has the best parents a girl could ask for. They've given Cass a life she wouldn't trade for the world. She has everything she needs—except maybe the one thing she wants. Like, to know who she is. Where she came from. Questions her adoptive parents can't answer, no matter how much they love her. But eighteen years ago, someone wrote Cass a series of letters. And they may just hold the answers Cass has been searching for.

Why? First off, the cover grabbed my attention right away. The beautiful combination of that blue and yellow...then the image of two different people in front of what looks like the same house. The synopsis gave me a heart-warming feel and I've been looking for a family-focused book. Hopefully the family dynamics will hit hard and possibly make me cry. I don't know why but wonderful family dynamics make me teary eyed every time. Anywho, GIMME.

What are you waiting on?
I'd love to stop by and see your pick(s), just leave a link in the comments :)


  1. I've seen The How & the Why compared to Far From the Tree and that definitely catches my eye. (Loved that one!) This looks like it could be super emotional, too.

    1. I have not read Far From the Tree yet but I may have to check it out! I agree. Certainly a good idea to keep the tissues close ;_;

  2. These both sounds like they will be really good!

    1. My fingers are crossed. Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. So totally not something I'd read but Fast Lane is calling to me - I think because of the music aspect. Thanks for sharing it!

    1. I'm big on music themes in books too! It's been awhile since I've read a Rockstar musician trope heheh

  4. Oooh! Both of these books sound interesting! Great picks!

    Here’s my WoW!

  5. Ooh, TOTALLY intrigued by both. But honestly that cover for The How & The Why truly is eye-catching and I'M RIGHT THERE WITH YOU. I need!

    1. RIGHT?! It's one of those covers that I'll no doubt be able to spot from a far when I pick it up at the bookstore xD
