Waiting on Wednesday May 31, 2017

This week I am trying something new. Since Waiting on Wednesday seems to not be a thing anymore (even though I have still been using it) I decided to switch over to Can’t Wait Wednesday. I saw this new meme over on Danie Reads Books and thought I would switch over to this one!

Adam Hawthorne is fine.

Yeah, his mother left, his older sister went with her, and his dad would rather read Nicholas Sparks novels than talk to him. And yeah, he spends his nights watching self-curated porn video playlists.

But Adam is fine.

When a family friend discovers Adam’s porn addiction, he’s forced to join an addiction support group: the self-proclaimed Knights of Vice. He goes because he has to, but the honesty of the Knights starts to slip past his defenses. Combine that with his sister’s out-of-the-blue return and the attention of a girl he meets in an AA meeting, and all the work Adam has put into being fine begins to unravel.

Now Adam has to face the causes and effects of his addiction, before he loses his new friends, his prodigal sister, and his almost semi-sort-of girlfriend.

I met Dave Connis in 2015 at the SCBWI Midsouth conference and then again in 2016 at a writing group and can’t wait for his book to come out! I haven’t read very many books where the main character deals with addiction. I am interested to see how all of that fits into Adam’s regular life. We saw a snippet of the book during my birthday week and I look forward to getting to read so much more!


Top Ten Tuesday May 30, 2017

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Today’s post is supposed to be about Ten Most Anticipated Books of the second half of 2017, but since I am still new in my return to the blogging world I really am not in the know for ten books coming out. So I am just going to do as many as I can.
