Waiting on Wednesday: The Whole Thing Together by Ann Brashares

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

This week I'm eagerly waiting on...

The Whole Thing Together by Ann Brashares 
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Publication Date: April 25th 2017. 

Summer for Sasha and Ray means the sprawling old house on Long Island. Since they were children, they’ve shared almost everything—reading the same books, running down the same sandy footpaths to the beach, eating peaches from the same market, laughing around the same sun-soaked dining table. Even sleeping in the same bed, on the very same worn cotton sheets. But they’ve never met. Sasha’s dad was once married to Ray’s mom, and together they had three daughters: Emma, the perfectionist; Mattie, the beauty; and Quinn, the favorite. But the marriage crumbled and the bitterness lingered. Now there are two new families—and neither one will give up the beach house that holds the memories, happy and sad, of summers past. The choices we make come back to haunt us; the effect on our destinies ripples out of our control…or does it? This summer, the lives of Sasha, Ray, and their siblings intersect in ways none of them ever dreamed, in a novel about family relationships, keeping secrets, and most of all, love.

The last book I read by Ann Brashares was My Name is Memory and it was a book I absolutely loved (I'm probably the only one amongst my friends that did), so I'm thoroughly excited to be getting a contemporary read from her. Also I'm a huge fan of Summer reads set away at Beach Houses, it makes me long to have my own, one that I can go to and hide away at over the Summer. I also do love my books that deal with family relationships well and with any hint of a romance I'm completely sold. I think The Whole Thing Together will have everything I love in a book and I will eagerly be anticipating its release! Also how pretty is that cover? The subtle, natural covers I always find myself gravitating towards. 

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. I haven't read a book by this author but I think I have a couple of hers somewhere in my shelves. Lol.

    I hope you'll enjoy this one, Jas!

  2. Thanks for putting this on my radar when we met in London, Jasprit! I'm definitely adding this one to my TBR to eagerly wait for. :) And, as you know, I'm waiting on A Conjuring of Light by V. E. Schwab, this Wednesday and every Wednesday. (Read this series, read it!)

  3. I haven’t heard about this book before, Jasprit. The blurb sounds interesting. I agree with you this cover is so good.

  4. I haven't read anything of Brashares other than the first Traveling Pants book but this really does sound lovely. I'm also a fan of novels centering around a beach house. :) Definitely adding this one to my list!

  5. You know, I've not read anything by Brashares! I do recognize the name, but I would have passed this book straight, to be honest. I hope you enjoy this one when you get a chance to read it, Jasprit!

    Have a wonderful week. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  6. I haven't read anything by her since Traveling Pants. I will watch for this one.

  7. Lovely pick Jasprit :D That cover is pretty gorgeous, yess. Seems sort of interesting too :) I hope you will end up loving it lots. <3
