Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the Jill at Breaking the Spine

I read Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed last year and really enjoyed it. (You can read my review here.) So my Can’t Wait Wednesday is Internment, which is supposed to come out next week!!!!

  1. Internment is going to be a fantastic read and is a great choice! I got to meet her sister (she writes educational books for Heinemann) at a couple of educational conferences and she’s a doll… so proud of her sister!!

    I have a few arcs I’m really looking forward to diving into like Wicked saints.
