Waiting On Wednesday - April 18th

My WOW pick this week is

What I Didn't Say
by Keary Taylor
Available - May 11th
Synopsis via Goodreads

Getting drunk homecoming night your senior year is never a good idea, but Jake Hayes never expected it all to end with a car crash and a t-post embedded in his throat. 

His biggest regret about it all? What he never said to Samantha Shay. He's been in love with her for years and never had the guts to tell her. Now it's too late. Because after that night, Jake will never be able to talk again.

When Jake returns to his small island home, population 5,000, he'll have to learn how to deal with being mute. He also finds that his family isn't limited to his six brothers and sisters, that sometimes an entire island is watching out for you. And when he gets the chance to spend more time with Samantha, she'll help him learn that not being able to talk isn’t the worst thing that could ever happen to you. Maybe, if she'll let him, Jake will finally tell her what he didn't say before, even if he can't actually say it.


Why I'm waiting on this book? I love Keary's writing and can't wait to see what she can do with contemp fiction. I'm sure it will be fabulous because just the synopsis has me teary eyed :)

What are you waiting on?

  1. I've always found the concept of being found mute entirely intriguing and I like the sound of it being an island that they all live on.

    Thanks so much for sharing and New Follower here :D
