Welcome to another Waiting on Wednesday event, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

Every week, we gather around the blogosphere and search out the upcoming book releases, sharing our thoughts and blurbs.  Today I am eagerly awaiting a book from an author recently added to my favorites list:  Lisa Jewell.  Her upcoming release, due out on June 7, 2016, is The Girls.





Synopsis:  Imagine that you live on a picturesque communal garden square, an oasis in urban London where your children run free, in and out of other people’s houses. You’ve known your neighbors for years and you trust them. Implicitly. You think your children are safe. But are they really?

On a midsummer night, as a festive neighborhood party is taking place, preteen Pip discovers her thirteen-year-old sister Grace lying unconscious and bloody in a hidden corner of a lush rose garden. What really happened to her? And who is responsible?

Dark secrets, a devastating mystery, and the games both children and adults play all swirl together in this gripping novel, packed with utterly believable characters and page-turning suspense. Fans of Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes will be captivated by The Girls, the next unforgettable novel by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jewell.


I hope to get an e-ARC of this one, which I have requested from NetGalley…because I don’t think I can wait until June.  What do you think?



  1. Oh my gosh, this sounds sooo good! I want to read it now! It’s going to be a long wait. I hadn’t heard of this one before, so thannks for sharing! Adding to my TBR list! Here’s my WoW. Happy reading!


  2. I went to Goodreads to add this one to my TBR list and, according to Goodreads, it’s already been published? Went to Amazon and it looks like it’s available to purchase through third party sellers. Maybe it went out of print and it’s a re-print or something? Anyway, if you don’t get that ARC and don’t want to have to wait, it looks like you can buy it now. Just wanted to let you know. 🙂


    • The Amazon page I found has it published, first time, in June. But from the Goodreads page, I linked to a different Amazon page showing it was published this year. Perhaps in another country? I am confused.



Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
