Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

A twenty-four-hour romance about two teens who meet—and perhaps change their minds about love—on a train ride to Upstate New York in the middle of a snowstorm

One train ride. Two strangers.

Noah is a hopeless romantic. He’s heading back home for one last chance with his first love, whom he broke up with when he went off to college.

Ammy doesn’t believe in true love—her parents being prime examples. She’s escaping from a mom who can’t take care of her to a dad who may not even want her. That is, until one winter night when Noah and Ammy find themselves in the same Amtrak car heading to Upstate New York.

After a train-wreck first encounter between the two of them, the Amtrak train suddenly breaks down due to a snowstorm. Desperate to make it to their destinations, Noah and Ammy have no other option but to travel together. What starts off as a minor detour turns into the whirlwind journey of a lifetime, and over the course of the night they fall in love. But come morning their adventure takes an unexpected turn for the worst. Can one night can really change how they feel about love...and the course of their lives forever?


Why I’m waiting: I have this thing for romances that take place in a short period of time. When they’re done right, they can really be a lot of fun! I’m really excited to see how this one plays out.


Becca’s Pick:

WoW: Love and Other Train Wrecks + Atheists Who Kneel and PrayAtheists Who Kneel and Pray
by Tarryn Fisher
Release Date: TBD
Publisher: Self-Published/Indie
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Find It: Goodreads

Yara Phillips is a wandering muse.

She dates men who need her, but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long.

David Lisey is in need of a muse.

A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he's found what he's been looking for.

Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential:
A broken heart.

David’s religion is love.

Yara’s religion is heartache.

Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice.


Why I’m waiting: I am a big fan of Tarryn Fisher!! Her novels are raw, emotional and a little dark (which I love). When I heard she had a new book coming out I was thrilled! Now I’m just wondering when the release date will be! She has been hinting that she is done writing on social media… so hopefully soon!!


What are you waiting on this week?
