Can’t Wait Wednesday is a book blogging meme hosted over at Wishful Endings. It’s to discuss and spotlight books that you’re excited about but that you haven’t read yet, to get you more excited about your TBR pile! It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, which is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

I’m super excited for this book to come out so that I can get it from the library (it seems very much like a Library Book) and my roommate can do all of the work and make me bagels. Check it out on Bookshop here, or Storygraph here. You can also read my review here, but when I scheduled this post, I hadn’t reviewed it yet.
