Waiting on Wednesday is an ingenious tag hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine where us readers get to gush about anticipated releases of novels! I participate in this meme once a month.
This month I cannot wait for Lisa McInerney’s Blood Miracles which is a sequel to her amazing book The Glorious Heresies (my review here). McInerney won the Bailey’s Women’s Prize for Fiction and the Desmond Elliot Prize in 2016 for The Glorious Heresies and so this next book has a lot to live up to!
“Like all twenty-year-olds, Ryan Cusack is trying to get his head around who he is. This is not a good time for his boss to exploit his dual heritage by opening a new black market route from Italy to Ireland. It is certainly not a good time for his adored girlfriend to decide he’s irreparably corrupted. And he really wishes he hadn’t accidentally caught the eye of an ornery grandmother who fancies herself his saviour. There may be a way clear of the chaos in the business proposals of music promoter Colm and in the attention of the charming, impulsive Natalie. But now that his boss’s ambitions have rattled the city, Ryan is about to find out what he’s made of, and it might be that chaos is in his blood.”
The book is due to be published on 6 April 2017. I cannot wait!
Thanks for reading – I hope that has piqued your interest in a new author / book! I will look forward to reading your Waiting on Wednesday posts!
