“Waiting On” Wednesday: And the Mountains Echoed

New WoW

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Although I didn’t read A Thousand Splendid Suns, I promise, it’s on my to-do list. However, after reading The Kite Runner I was hooked to Mr. Hosseini’s writing. So when I heard about an upcoming release I was thrilled! It’s due to be released in about a week, I’m very excited to hear the news and reviews about this book. Although I may not preorder it (unless it includes an autograph ;)) I’ll be sure to purchase it sometime in the near future.

Synopsis from Khaled Hosseini’s website

And the Mountains Echoed

An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else.

Riverhead Hardcover
(May 21, 2013)
416 pages
ISBN: 978-1594631764

Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

On this website you are also able to preorder the book, but like I said, I won’t be jumping on that bandwagon unless you can guarantee an autograph! You can also check out praises and Q&A’s.


What are you looking forward to?
