[Waiting On Wednesday: This Song Will Save Your Life]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"This Song Will Save Your Life"
Author: Leila Sales
Release Date: September 17th, 2013


Making friends has never been Elise Dembowski’s strong suit. All throughout her life, she’s been the butt of every joke and the outsider in every conversation. When a final attempt at popularity fails, Elise nearly gives up. Then she stumbles upon a warehouse party where she meets Vicky, a girl in a band who accepts her; Char, a cute, yet mysterious disc jockey; Pippa, a carefree spirit from England; and most importantly, a love for DJing.

Told in a refreshingly genuine and laugh-out-loud funny voice, THIS SONG WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE is an exuberant novel about identity, friendship, and the power of music to bring people together.

This sounds like the perfect contemporary for me!  A whole bunch of music people all meeting up and being amazing!  I mean that's what it sounds like this book and hopefully it is!  The last music book I read left a lot to be desired and so I have high hopes for this one.  I just hope they aren't too high?

What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!
