Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Sadie Montogmery has had good breaks and bad breaks in her life, but as a struggling artist, all she needs is one lucky break. Things seem to be going her way when she lands one of the coveted finalist spots in a portrait competition. It happens to coincide with a surgery she needs to have. Minor, they say. Less than a week in the hospital they say. Nothing about you will change, they say. Upon recovery, it begins to dawn on Sadie that she can see everything around her, but she can no longer see faces.
Temporary, they say. Lots of people deal with this, they say. As she struggles to cope—and hang onto her artistic dreams—she finds solace in her fourteen-year-old dog, Peanut. Thankfully, she can still see animal faces. When Peanut gets sick, she rushes him to the emergency vet nearby. That’s when she meets veterinarian Dr. Addison. And she’s pleasantly surprised when he asks her on a date. But she doesn’t want anyone to know about her face blindness. Least of all Joe, her obnoxious neighbor who always wears a bowling jacket and seems to know everyone in the building. He’s always there at the most embarrassing but convenient times, and soon, they develop a sort of friendship. But could it be something more?
As Sadie tries to save her career, confront her haunting past, and handle falling in love with two different guys she realizes that happiness can be found in the places—and people— you least expect.
Why I Can’t Wait!
I enjoyed the author’s previous books, and I can’t wait for this one!
What book or books are you anxiously waiting for? Comment below!
Sounds like an interesting book!
This is an author I’ve been wanting to read since her first book! This sounds so good and I hope you get your hands on it soon.
This sounds like a really good read, hope you enjoy 😊
I haven’t read any of her books, but I’ve heard they are so good!
She’s one of my favorite authors!
I enjoy this author and will likely want to read this one also.
Oh good, I hope we both enjoy it.
oooooh this sounds like so much fun!! ALSO THE COVER IS STUNNING OMG
Thank you, Anoushka!
I know some others are eager to get a chance at this one, too. I have one of her earlier ones on my list to read eventually.
I’ve enjoyed all her books, I hope you enjoy the one you have!
This sounds good, but you have quite a while to wait. Face blindness for an artist!😱
I’m fascinated with the face blindness angle.
I have become a huge fan of Center this year. She was a new author to me and I’m so excited for this one!!!
She’s wonderful. I found her about 3 years ago and have read everything I could find of hers.
I read a review somewhere about a book with a character who struggled with facial blindness. And any story that includes pets automatically gets bonus points in my opinion. Happy Thanksgiving, Wendy!
Thank you, Teri! I’m really interested in the face blindness, and I love books with pets too.
This sounds like a lot of fun! I love the roller skates on the cover too. 🙂
Thank you, Greg!
Great choice, Wendy. I am also waiting for this book. I am sure we will both enjoy it.
Yes! I’m sure we will too
I am such a sucker for covers that have a dog on the cover and this one is especially adorable! The premise also sounds really good. I’ve never read a book where a character has face blindness so that should be interesting!
I think so too. I can’t imagine having face blindness, so it will be interesting to see what it’s all about.
Sounds really interesting and the dog in it seems an added bonus. Hope you enjoy it, Wendy🙂
Yes, a dog in a story always makes it better! 😃
I’m excited to read this! I lucked out and already have an ARC of it. I’m tempted to dive right in, but I’m waiting for the right moment.
I don’t have an ARC yet, but I’m still hoping to get one.
I hope you enjoy this one when you get a chance to read it.
Thank you, Cindy!
I love this author and this cover and synopsis sound like a fun read! I hope that you enjoy it Wendy.
Thank you, Jodie!
I’m excited for this one too, I love her books!
Oh good! I hope we both enjoy it.
Love that cover! The roller skates are awesome.
Yes, brings back middle school days!
I’m excited to read this one too Wendy! I’m sure we are both going to love it!☕🤗📚💜
YES! Katherine Center is so good!
I’ve seen this one and think it looks like a good one.
I hope so! Thank you, Tessa!
What an intriguing premise!
I know! It’s so different
What an interesting premise!
I know! I’m looking forward to it for sure.
I’ve only read a couple of books dealing with face blindness and I can’t even imagine how people cope with it.
It’s definitely something that would be difficult to deal with.
Oh I just read this arc! It doesn’t publish for months but I couldn’t wait! It’s an interesting read and I learned a lot about face blindness!
Oh that’s so good to know. I don’t have an ARC yet, but I’m hoping to get one, or I’ll just read it when it publishes.
