Waiting on Wednesday was originally created by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. The idea is to spotlight an upcoming release that you’re excitedly anticipating.
This is my first one and I have decided to spotlight:
Asking For It by Louise O’Neill
Publication date: 3rd September 2015
It’s the beginning of the summer in a small town in Ireland. Emma O’Donovan is eighteen years old, beautiful, happy, confident.
One night, there’s a party. Everyone is there. All eyes are on Emma.
The next morning, she wakes on the front porch of her house. She can’t remember what happened, she doesn’t know how she got there.
She doesn’t know why she’s in pain.
But everyone else does. Photographs taken at the party show, in explicit detail, what happened to Emma that night.
I have wanted this book since it was announced. I’m a massive fan of O’Neill’s first novel Only Ever Yours and I can’t wait for Asking For It. A scathing look at rape culture in our society today, I just know that this book will be fantastic and advance reviews from other bloggers have all been very positive.
What is your Waiting on Wednesday pick for this week?
