Waiting on Wednesday #73


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

This Raging Light by Estelle Laure
January 14th 2016
Find it on Goodreads

How is it that you suddenly notice a person? How is it that one day Digby was my best friend's admittedly cute twin brother, and then the next he stole air, gave jitters, twisted my insides up?

Lucille has bigger problems than falling for her best friend's unavailable brother. Her mom has gone, leaving her to look after her sister, Wren. With bills mounting up and appearances to keep, Lucille is raging against her life but holding it together - just.

A stunning debut to devour in one sitting, Laure captures completely the agony and ecstasy of first love.

I am sort of fussy about the contemps I read, but I really love the sound of This Raging Light. From the early reviews, it seems like it's going to be an emotional rollercoaster with amazing characters and so I'm looking forward to reading it. I do get the feeling it's going to be one of those open-ended books though, where not everything is resolved. I'm not usually a huge fan of that type of ending, but since I really do love the synopsis, I'm going to give this book a go anyway. Also, I used to much prefer the US cover (which you can view on Goodreads, it's the more colourful one) and while it still probably is my favourite, the UK one has definitely grown on me.

What are you waiting on this week?
