Waiting on Wednesday: Wild Swans

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Wild Swans by Jessica Spotswood
Pub. Date: May 1, 2016


Goodreads says, "The summer before Ivy’s senior year is going to be golden; all bonfires, barbeques, and spending time with her best friends. For once, she will just get to be. No summer classes, none of Granddad’s intense expectations to live up to the family name. For generations, the Milbourn women have lead extraordinary lives—and died young and tragically. Granddad calls it a legacy, but Ivy considers it a curse. Why else would her mother have run off and abandoned her as a child? But when her mother unexpectedly returns home with two young daughters in tow, all of the stories Ivy wove to protect her heart start to unravel. The very people she once trusted now speak in lies. And all of Ivy’s ambition and determination cannot defend her against the secrets of the Milbourn past…"
So, now that January is here, I can post all the beach reads/summertime books for my WoW picks, right? It's never too early to start planning the books you'll relax with this summer.  What do you guys think of this one?

  1. I changed the wallpaper on my computer to a beach scene from Maui. Winter is finally here and I'm already ready for it to go! Bring on the beach reads :)

    I think this sounds really good. I still haven't read her fantasy series but I know those are popular. I'm sure I'll be ordering a copy of this for my library and maybe I'll pick it up as well.

    1. Nice, Christina! I love Maui. I should do that as well. I am so ready for summer as well. Let's just fast forward. :)

      I read the first book in her fantasy series and really enjoyed it, so I am hoping this one doesn't disappoint. Thanks for visiting!
