Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: Searching for Beautiful by Nyrae Dawn
Genre: YA, Contemporary
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Release Date: March 4th 2014

Before, Brynn had a group of best friends, a loving boyfriend, a growing talent for pottery. She had a life. And after…she had none. When Brynn lost the boyfriend who never loved her, the friends who feel she betrayed their trust, and the new life just beginning to grow inside her, she believes her future is as empty as her body. But then Christian, the boy next door, starts coming around. Playing his guitar and pushing her to create art once more. She meets some new friends at the local community center, plus even gets her dad to look her in the eye again…sort of. But can Brynn open up her heart to truly find her life’s own beauty, when living for the after means letting go of the before?
Why am I waiting on this?
  • I have heard awesome things about Nyrae's past books
  • I love stories like this
  • and I am very curious as to what happened between the before and after 

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?!

I love love love Nyrae Dawn! I've read two books by her and another she co-authored and I can say that her writing is really good. Her stories are heartbreaking and her characters are just so honest. I'm definitely excited about reading this one!
