Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings   to spotlight upcoming releases we are excited about that we have yet to read.

The book I’m waiting on this week is…


Friends, I simply adore this author! When she has a new release, I scramble to get it, and I was thrilled to be given an ARC and asked to participate in the blog tour with giveaway for The Secret of Clouds. I’ll also be group reading this one, and let me know if you’d like to join me, too. Alyson Richman’s historical fiction transports you to a different time and place, and I cannot wait to dig into this one. And look at that cover! Ahh! 👀 👀
