Waiting on Wednesday: 3/5/14

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!

Only The Good Die Young

     The first year of college is supposed to be about parties, parties, and getting the hell out of Texas. Instead, Milcah Daniels is spending her eighteenth year in and out of Houston's hospitals. Her hair is falling out, they’ve cut off her boobs, and if she makes it to nineteen, she’ll consider it a personal miracle.
     Breast cancer really has a way of messing with a girl’s social calendar.
     When Milcah’s temporarily discharged from the hospital, she’s determined to get a tattoo for every medical procedure she’s had. Her quest leads her to Skin Stories, a new tattoo parlor a block from her apartment. And to it’s infuriatingly sexy artist, Callum Scott.
     Callum is everything Milcah wants, and everything she shouldn’t have now. A new relationship when the official prognosis is one to five years is a terrible idea. But Callum doesn’t know about the breast cancer, and Milcah’s not running to tell him.
     But when the doctor says things are actually looking positive, her entire life turns upside down. How is she supposed to start living again when she’s finally learned to accept her death?

Expected Publication: March 11, 2014

Why I'm Waiting: If you know me, you know my aunt/godmother just passed away from breast cancer last July. It was so hard to see her struggling with it. She went through so much and it hurt when I lost her. I'd like to read this one in hopes that at least Milcah can get her happy ending. Because I would give anything to see what would've happened if my aunt got hers. 

What are you waiting on this week?
Will you wait on this one with me?!
