Can’t Wait for … Hot to Trot by M.C. Beaton and R.W. Green

M.C. Beaton’s Agatha Raisin headlines one of my favorite series. Aggie, somewhat cranky and irrational, has been a unique and not always pleasant voice since her cozy debut in 1992. Unfortunately, Beaton passed away in 2019, and I assumed that spelled the end for sleuthing adventures in the Cotswolds. But for this week’s Can’t-Wait Wednesday, I’m delighted to reveal that Beaton had at least one more mystery up her sleeve with some help from R.W. Green.

Can’t Wait for … This Is All Your Fault by Aminah Mae Safi

Sometimes I don’t even have to finish a book’s blurb before it ends up on my TBR pile. First, I absolutely love when books take place over a short period of time—especially a day or less. A truncated time frame usually bumps up the tension and raises the stakes, and I’ll never complain about either of those things! Second, I love books that feature other books, bookstores, or libraries. Most of you can probably relate. With that in mind, imagine my delight when I first came across this week’s selection for Can’t-Wait Wednesday.

Can’t Wait for … The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson

Every once in a while I get in a reading mood where I’m just not sure what I want. To paraphrase Justice Potter Stewart on obscenity: I’ll know it when I see it. And then, as if by magic, the perfect book will cross my desk at just the right time. For this week’s Can’t-Wait Wednesday, I’m highlighting a future release that fits my current witchy-reading mood to a T.

Can’t Wait for … How to Catch a Queen by Alyssa Cole

There are authors I adore, and then there are authors I know I’d adore if only I’d pick up one of their books. Alyssa Cole is at the top of the latter list—every blurb for her books sound exactly like the kind of read I want to sink into. So why haven’t I buckled down and actually read one of them? Great questions! Who knows. But for this week’s Can’t-Wait Wednesday, I’m highlighting one of her future releases with the caveat that I’ll read some of her backlog before this comes out in December.

Can’t Wait for … How to Fail at Flirting by Denise Williams

Books. Books. Books. They cover my shelves, there’s always one waiting for me—heck, I even love reading about them. So when I start hearing constant buzz about a future release, and when every review mentions how the reviewer “couldn’t put it down”, I take notice. For this week’s Can’t-Wait Wednesday, here’s a read that I—well, that I just can’t wait for.

Can’t Wait for … The Little Shop on Floral Street by Jane Lacey-Crane

Tuesday is gone and Thursday hasn’t arrived, so that must mean it’s time for Can’t-Wait Wednesday. Lately I’ve been gravitating toward books that explore families, particularly siblings, in all of their fun, complicated glory, and this week I think I’ve found the perfect read that encapsulates that spirit.

Can’t Wait for … The Year Shakespeare Ruined My Life by Dani Jansen

Tuesday is gone and Thursday hasn’t arrived, so that must mean it’s time for Can’t-Wait Wednesday. One of my reading plans this year has been to look into classic reads that I’ve missed out on, so it’s fitting that I recently stumbled across a new book that’ll have me brushing up on my Shakespeare.
