Waiting on Wednesday - October 5

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The World We Found by Thirty Umrigar 
Publish Date: 1/3/2012
University students in late 1970s Bombay, Armaiti, Laleh, Kavita, and Nishta were inseparable. Spirited and unconventional, they challenged authority and fought for a better world. But much has changed in the thirty years since those heady days. Following different paths, the quartet has drifted apart, and the day-to-day demands of work and family have tempered the revolutionary fervor they shared. Then comes devastating news: Armaiti, who moved to America, is dying and wants to see the old friends she left behind. In the course of their journey to reconnect, Armaiti, Laleh, Kavita, and Nishta must confront the truths of their lives—acknowledge long-held regrets, face painful secrets and hidden desires, and reconcile their idealistic past and their compromised present. And they will have to decide what matters most—a choice that just may help them reclaim the extraordinary world they once found. Exploring the enduring bonds of friendship and the power of love to change lives, The World We Found also offers an indelible portrait of modern India—a nation struggling to bridge economic, religious, gender, and generational divides.
I actually received this for review this week and I can't wait to read it, but have a ton of review books to read before I get to it and it's killing me. 

So what are you waiting on this week?

Ah, don't you hate it when you get something and are dying to move it to the top of your TBR pile but shouldn't? :) I haven't heard of this either but it sounds really emotional. I think I might end up crying my way through a good part of it.

Enjoy reading it when you do get to it!

Thanks for the WoW visit. :) Add me to the "haven't heard of this"'s outside my usual genre, but the blurb is intriguing nonetheless.
