Waiting on Wednesday: 1/30/13

     This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine! 

This week I'm waiting on something completely out of comfort zone. But because of the cover I'm willing to give it a try. (Yes I'm aware of how shallow that sounds.... Lol) but also because of its uniqueness. I haven't found any other book that deals with the circus and I would love to find out what it's all about.  

That Time I Joined The Circus
     A music-obsessed, slightly snarky New York City girl, Lexi is on her own. After making a huge mistake—and facing a terrible tragedy— Lexi has no choice but to track down her long-absent mother. Rumor has it that Lexi’s mom is somewhere in Florida with a traveling circus.
     When Lexi arrives at her new, three-ring reality, her mom isn’t there…but her destiny might be. Surrounded by tigers, elephants, and trapeze artists, Lexi finds some surprising friends and an even more surprising chance at true love. She even lucks into a spot as the circus’s fortune teller, reading tarot cards and making predictions.
     But then Lexi’s ex-best friend from home shows up, and suddenly it’s Lexi’s own future that’s thrown into question… 
     With humor, wisdom, and a dazzlingly fresh voice, this debut reminds us of the magic of circus tents, city lights, first kisses, last heartaches, and the importance of an excellent playlist.

Release Date: April 2013

  1. This sounds absolutely WONDERFUL!! I've always been enchanted by circuses. I kinda wanted to join one when I was a kid. This book promises to deliver all the excitement and fascination of a circus, with mystery and romance thrown into the mix! What's not to love? And that cover...I certainly COVET it!! Thanks for featuring this novel!! I've found a new author, and the book is going straight onto my TBR pile!! L)
