Waiting On Wednesday (February 4)

wow

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated.

This week, I’m waiting on Words and Their Meanings by Kate Bassett, which has an expected publication date of September 8th, 2014.

Anna O’Mally doesn’t believe in the five stages of grief. Her way of dealing with death equates to daily bouts of coffin yoga and fake-tattooing Patti Smith quotes onto her arms. Once a talented writer, Anna no longer believes words matter, until shocking discoveries– in the form of origami cranes– force her to redefine family and love.

As Anna goes in search of the truth, she discovers that while every story, every human being, has a last line, it might still be possible to find the words for a new beginning.

I love reading books about grief, as strange as that may sound. Every character handles it differently (just like every individual), and it’s always really interesting and touching to see how they go through that journey. Anna seems to be no exception — especially if coffin yoga is anything like how I’m imagining it to look.
