Waiting On Wednesday # 23

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted each week by Breaking the Spine and lets us spotlight a book that we are eagerly waiting to be released.

This week’s Waiting On Wednesday is The Way I Used To Be by Amber Smith!

Publication: March 22nd 2016 by Margaret K. McElderry Books

Summary from Goodreads:

Eden was always good at being good. Starting high school didn’t change who she was. But the night her brother’s best friend rapes her, Eden’s world capsizes.

What was once simple, is now complex. What Eden once loved—who she once loved—she now hates. What she thought she knew to be true, is now lies. Nothing makes sense anymore, and she knows she’s supposed to tell someone what happened but she can’t. So she buries it instead. And she buries the way she used to be.

 WHY MUST THE WORLD BE SO CRUEL!?!?! Ugh, I need to read this so badly. Anything up the Courtney Summers alleyway is on my must have list. This is the type of book that needs to be read, not only by me – but I mean for everyone. I cannot wait to get my hands on this gorgeous beast and proceed to tear my heart to pieces. I shall have ice cream, tea, tissues, and my teddybear on standby.

  1. YES, I couldn’t agree more that rape needs to be discussed more often, and publicly! Subjects like these shouldn’t be taboo, yet as a society we’ve done just that. And why? Because it’s too hard and painful to talk about, which is totally understandable, but by not acknowledging its existence, the perpetrator wins. I MUST read this book!! Thank you, Sam.:)
