Waiting on Wednesday: Swear on This Life by Renee Carlino

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on:  
Swear on This Life by Renee Carlino



From Goodreads:
When a bestselling debut novel from mysterious author J.Colby becomes the literary event of the year, Emiline reads it reluctantly. As an adjunct writing instructor at UC San Diego with her own stalled literary career and a bumpy long-term relationship, Emiline isn’t thrilled to celebrate the accomplishments of a young and gifted writer.

Yet from the very first page, Emiline is entranced by the story of Emerson and Jackson, two childhood best friends who fall in love and dream of a better life beyond the long dirt road that winds through their impoverished town in rural Ohio.

That’s because the novel is patterned on Emiline’s own dark and desperate childhood, which means that “J. Colby” must be Jase: the best friend and first love she hasn’t seen in over a decade. Far from being flattered that he wrote the novel from her perspective, Emiline is furious that he co-opted her painful past and took some dramatic creative liberties with the ending.

The only way she can put her mind at ease is to find and confront “J. Colby,” but is she prepared to learn the truth behind the fiction? 
I loved Renee's last release, Before We Were Strangers, and this one sounds great, too!  Swear on This Life is scheduled to be released on August 9, 2016, and I can't wait to read it!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??

  1. Ooh, I'm always half-excited, half-nervous about books with authors/readers in them for some reason but I hope you love this one. Carino's other book was super hyped when it came out so I must check it out before this one releases.

  9. Ooh, love the sound of this one! To see one's own life portrayed in a book, when her writing career is going nowhere? That would hurt! Thanks for sharing...and enjoy.

  22. This is my first time coming across this book, but it has caught my attention already! Before We Were Strangers is actually on my TBR, so I think I'll read that first before deciding on this. Great pick, and thanks for stopping by at The Regal Critiques! :))

  25. I'm embarrassed to say that have no fewer than FOUR books by Carlino on my shelves and have not picked one up yet. And some I am so excited about that I just had to have them but now I don't read them because I like to prolong the anticipation. Ridiculous but true. LOL I love the sound of this one, though. Maybe by the time this one is released in August I will have read at least one of her books. :)
