It’s been far too long since I participated in Waiting on Wednesday, and because I’ve that, this weeks spotlight has taken full advantage of all those missed weeks! There’s not one or two books, there are four (yes, I went a little crazy) in an effort to make up time for all those missed weeks and beyond that, I have a contemporary theme going with some of the rising stars in the inspirational genre and a pro. It’s just a good ole fashioned theme going on. Coincidence? I’ll never say.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each week allows you the opportunity to spotlight an up-and-coming release you are excited about.
