Waiting on Wednesday {29}

Hey everyone and welcome to my weekly Waiting on Wednesday meme post! This is just a once a week deal where each Wednesday I post about one book I am looking forward to reading and then link it up to the host blog, 
Breaking the Spine, where I can be connected to over 200 other readers and bloggers who are looking for a new read! My friend Kim from kimberlyfayereads participates in this meme each week and it has always looked like a great time. Below you will find the book cover, synopsis, Goodreads link and my reasons for waiting on this read! Enjoy!

This week's WOW is... Amusement by KB Nelson!

Title: Amusement (Carnival #2)
Author: KB Nelson
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary/Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2015

Love isn’t easy.

Charlie Scott is homesick and tired. She misses the town and the people she left behind. Living a life on the run hasn’t been easy for her, and she’s ready to face the consequences, even if it means leaving the love of her life, Blue, behind.

Home is where the heart is.

Eight months after returning home, Charlie’s life is finally in order. She has a job she loves and her relationship with her father has never been better. But underneath the image of her perfect life, trouble bubbles to the surface.

You can’t escape your past.

Torn between a normal life and the life she left behind, Charlie remains steadfast in her resolve to create a better tomorrow for herself and for her friends. But life has a way of throwing curveballs, and this next one hits her right in the face—Blue returns to Lakeview a changed man.

Second chances are rare..

There are two things Charlie knows for certain; she loves Blue, and he’s not good for her. Charlie must come to terms with her past and her present. She must determine if she could possibly have a future with the man she threw her life away for. She has a second chance at love, but is it worth the risk when her future could hang in the balance?

Don’t miss the exciting, heartfelt final chapter in the epic love story between two lost souls fumbling their way through life and love. Not suitable for those under the age of 18.

Why am I waiting?

Wow guys. Just wow. Last summer, I came across Carnival, book one in this series, after a friend reviewed and loved it. I'm usually not one for the romance, but I have an unhealthy attraction to anything that has to do with circuses or carnivals. As soon as I read the blurb, I was hooked. I read Carnival in one sitting, then became one of this series' biggest fans. I won't lie to you, this series isn't for everyone. Anyone who has read from KB Nelson can tell you that her works aren't your average romance story. They're raw, gritty, full of emotion. The situations are more intense than you've ever read. It's like taking any other NA romance read you've ever read and upping the ante by ten percent. Seriously. By the time you finish book one your heart will be racing and you really will feel like you just got off a roller coaster! Nelson kept that same energy going with Carnival Nights, the 'second' novel in this series which serves as the novella, bridging the gaps between books one and two. As a member of Nelson's street team, I was lucky enough to grab an ARC of Amusement this past weekend and ended up also devouring it in one sitting as well. I won't spoil anything for you, but I promise, if you enjoyed Carnival, you will be more than pleased with this 'final' chapter in the duology! I'm saving my 5-star review for release day tomorrow, but do yourself a favor and go ahead and add this one to your TBR in the mean time! I promise you won't be disappointed!

What are YOU waiting on this week?

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Reading! 



  1. Sound like a beautiful read. Nice pick.

  2. You make me want to read this book and series. I'm not the romance type either but after hearing what you say about KB Nelson being so and I quote " raw, gritty, full of emotion" it makes me feel like this book could be the romance type I would enjoy. Your excitement and upbeat attitude is refreshing. I look forward to reading more of your posting. You have a new follower.
