I know, I know, I’m not very good at doing bookish memes. Or, at least, I’m not good at the structure and planning that comes with it. I’m not one for doing a certain meme every single week. I’d rather do a TTT when the subject is interesting to me, a Friday Finds when I find exciting new books and a WOW when I find a book I’m really looking forward to. And, as you can see, I found a book that isn’t published yet, but I’m very looking forward to, so here is another WOW!
