Waiting on Wednesday - Year of Mistaken Discoveries by Eileen Cook (January 29)



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This weekly meme is a chance to share upcoming books that you're most excited about.





Friendship is a bond stronger than secrets in this novel from the author ofThe Almost Truth and Unraveling Isobel.


As first graders, Avery and Nora bonded over a special trait they shared—they were both adopted.

Years later, Avery is smart, popular, and on the cheerleading squad, while Nora spends her time on the fringes of school society, wearing black, reading esoteric poetry, and listening to obscure music. They never interact...until the night Nora approaches Avery at a party, saying it's urgent. She tells Avery that she thought she found her birth mom—but it turned out to be a cruel lie. Avery feels for Nora, but returns to her friends at the party.

Then Avery learns that Nora overdosed on pills. Left to cope with Nora's loss and questioning her own actions, Avery decides to honor her friend by launching a search for her own birth mother. Aided by Brody, a friend of Nora's who is also looking for a way to respect Nora's legacy, Avery embarks on an emotional quest. But what she's really seeking might go far deeper than just genetics... (Synopsis from Goodreads)

    1. Hi Aly,

      She's definitely one of my favorite authors, I've enjoyed her YA and adult fiction novels. So if you enjoy contemporary ya, she's definitely a great choice. Thanks for stopping by! :)

    1. Agreed, but she hasn't failed me yet - and I occasionally enjoy a heavy read, even if they leave me sobbing lol. However, I think you would enjoy Eileen Cook, but if I were to pick one of her books for you I'd definitely choose Unraveling Isobel , which is a fun contemporary YA with a nice paranormal-fantasy element...or Unpredicatable one of her adult fiction novels which features a female lead who poses as a psychic as part of a plan to try to win back her ex... :) In fact I highly recommend you take a look at both since I happen to own them and could lend them to you :)

  9. Auto-buy author...hm...maybe Cassandra Clare or Marissa Meyer. This sounds like it could be deep and slightly tear-jerking. Therefore, I need.
