Waiting on Wednesday: Here Comes the Sun by Nicole Y. Dennis-Benn

 "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:  
Here Comes the Sun by Nicole Y. Dennis-Benn

From Goodreads:
Capturing the distinct rhythms of Jamaican life and dialect, Nicole Dennis- Benn pens a tender hymn to a world hidden among pristine beaches and the wide expanse of turquoise seas. At an opulent resort in Montego Bay, Margot hustles to send her younger sister, Thandi, to school. Taught as a girl to trade her sexuality for survival, Margot is ruthlessly determined to shield Thandi from the same fate. When plans for a new hotel threaten their village, Margot sees not only an opportunity for her own financial independence but also perhaps a chance to admit a shocking secret: her forbidden love for another woman. As they face the impending destruction of their community, each woman—fighting to balance the burdens she shoulders with the freedom she craves—must confront long-hidden scars. From a much-heralded new writer, Here Comes the Sun offers a dramatic glimpse into a vibrant, passionate world most outsiders see simply as paradise.
This cover calls me to me! I really like the idea of the multiple POV and the setting of this one.  Here Comes the Sun is scheduled to be released on July 19, 2016, and I can't wait to read it!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??


  1. Multiple POVs can be a hit or a miss to me, it mostly depends on the author's writing, of course. This one sounds like a fascinating read and quite different, though, so I hope you really enjoy it when the time comes! :)

    Here's my WoW!

  2. Nice pick! Doesn't sound like my kind of read but I hope you positively love it once you read it!

  8. This does have a distinctive cover- makes me want to be on a beach somewhere. And I do like multiple POV's if done right- it can add a lot to the story to see from different perspectives. sounds like a good book .:)

  9. I LOVE that cover and whoever wrote the synopsis "pens a tender hymn," him/herself.

  10. Sounds good, hope you get a chance to read it soon

  11. This seems really interesting. I'm from Jamaica so I'd love to read this story and see how the author captures not only the natural beauty of the island, but also the characters lives. Thanks for sharing :)

  12. Huh, I'd not heard of this one before. I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

  13. The cover art reminds me of drawings from the 50s and 60s.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  14. This does sound good! Multiple POVs are less jarring to me these days, but it also depends on the author and how relevant and engaging they make the authors and POVs. I think this one is worth reading though. Here's mine:

  15. What a lovely cover! Multiple POVs can be quite tricky since it can turn out to be very good for the narration or go completely the other way round, but I'm sure intrigued by the synopsis!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW

  16. Oo this sounds really good. I like the cover as well. Great pick!!

This & That – 2 Books with Strong Friendships, a Quest, and SHIPs!This and That” is a feature created by Megan @ Reading Books Likes a Bossand borrowed here with permission. Megan created this feature and I owe this post to her brilliance.  Not only should you check out her blog, generally, but her This & That recommendations are utterly perfect! Megan created this feature to showcase books that either sound similar or have similar themes, and thus I am recommending that you read the "that book" because you are a a fan of the “this book.”

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
