Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re all excited about! This week I’m waiting for…..


I know what you’re going to say: “But, Lauren, The Hate U Give was released in February.” To which I respond, “Unfortunately not for me.” Ugh, I hate how I’m living in a non-English country and we have to wait for AGES for new books to release. Okay, it’s two months tops, but still. Everyone has read it by now and raving about how good and important this book is and I’m stuck here, waiting for it to release on…

April 6th.

That’s right. I have to wait 10 more days until I can get my hands on this one. And The Hate U Give is not the only one by the way. I’m also waiting for other books that have already been released in the US and the UK like “The Inexplicable Logic of My Life”; “List of Cages” and so many more. It’s so unfair.


I’m sure you know what the book is about (you’ve probably all read it by now) but here’s the summary anyway.

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend, Khalil, at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, Khalil’s death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Starr’s best friend at school suggests he may have had it coming. When it becomes clear the police have little interest in investigating the incident, protesters take to the streets and Starr’s neighborhood becomes a war zone. What everyone wants to know is: What really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does—or does not—say could destroy her community. It could also endanger her life.

Is anyone else in the same boat as me? What books are you waiting for?

See you soon,

  1. Ha! I am glad that I kept reading your post, because I was thinking that this one is already out. Not much longer to wait for you, though. It is such an important and wonderful book. I hope that you enjoy it when you have the chance to read it. 🙂

  2. Awww that sucks that you’re still waiting for this one! I’ve been hearing so many incredible things about it and it’s on my TBR for this year. I’m betting it’ll definitely be worth the wait in the end. 😊💕


  3. I really can’t wait to read that one – there is so much hype around it it’s a bit scary to get into it, but I hope we’ll both love it when we finally read it 🙂

  4. Hi! The Hate U Give was actually one of my most anticipated books and ended up waiting for like 3 weeks to get my hands on! I haven’t read it yet ’cause there are way too many books on my TBR list, but I’m super psyched about reading it!
