Waiting on Wednesday (51)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. So here's a thing I'm looking forward to: Landline, by Rainbow Rowell (8 July 2014).

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it's been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply - but that almost seems besides the point now.

Two days before they're supposed to visit Neal's family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can't go. She's a TV writer, and something's come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her - Neal is always a little upset with Georgie - but she doesn't expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her. When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she's finally done it. If she's ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It's not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she's been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .

Is that what she's supposed to do? Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened? 


I really enjoyed Rainbow Rowell's novel Fangirl, so now I'm looking into her other stuff. This has an odd premise, but I like odd.


  1. I just read this one and it is awesome! Hope you love it! Here's mine: “AMERICAN BLONDE”

  2. I seriously need to read something by Rainbow Rowell already, I'm pretty sure I'm one of the last people to, haha.
