Waiting on Wednesday - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place to showcase a book we’re really looking forward to with bated breath! A new release in our favorite series, an exciting new title from a favorite author…

 Waiting on Wednesday #49

Today, I’m waiting on Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone. It will be released next week, so for once, the wait will be quite short. I just read two reviews for it, and that made me more excited… you can check out Lyn’s five star review, and Lily’s 3.5 star review if you’re interested 😉

Every Last Word cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

If you could read my mind, you wouldn’t be smiling.
Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can’t turn off.
Second-guessing every move, thought, and word makes daily life a struggle, and it doesn’t help that her lifelong friends will turn toxic at the first sign of a wrong outfit, wrong lunch, or wrong crush. Yet Sam knows she’d be truly crazy to leave the protection of the most popular girls in school. So when Sam meets Caroline, she has to keep her new friend with a refreshing sense of humor and no style a secret, right up there with Sam’s weekly visits to her psychiatrist.
Caroline introduces Sam to Poet’s Corner, a hidden room and a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse, and starts to discover a whole new side of herself. Slowly, she begins to feel more “normal” than she ever has as part of the popular crowd . . . until she finds a new reason to question her sanity and all she holds dear.

Thanks for stopping by, have a fantastic Wednesday! Don’t forget to leave me a link in your comment so I can come and check out your Waiting on Wednesday post, too.

  1. I think this sounds really good. I’ve been seeing more teen novels lately dealing with issues like OCD and anxiety which I think is a good trend and will hopefully help any teen readers who are dealing with those issues.

  2. I´m also waiting for this book, and I can hardly wait to get my hands on it 😉 Jeg bare elsker Tamara Ireland Stones bøker, og håper de blir oversatt til norsk også etter hvert. Her er det fortsatt grått og vått, men hva gjør vel det når man kan sitte inne og lese!? Klem fra Anette 🙂

  3. It sounds like a great read. No matter if a kid is in the popular crowd or a ‘misfit’, every kid I’ve met feels like an outsider at times. It’s great that she finds a place she feels like she better belongs. I also like the OCD and visiting a psychiatrist aspect. Great pick 😀
