I can’t wait for : The Need by Helen Phillips (Can’t-Wait Wednesday)

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we are excited about that we have yet to read.

I came across this meme recently and thought it sounded like a lot of fun. There are so many books that I can’t wait to read…
My choice for this week is:
The Need by Helen Phillips
The Need

Expected Publication July 9, 2019 by Simon Schuster

 

Goodreads Description:

When Molly, home alone with her two young children, hears footsteps in the living room, she tries to convince herself it’s the sleep deprivation. She’s been hearing things these days. Startling at loud noises. Imagining the worst-case scenario. It’s what mothers do, she knows.

But then the footsteps come again, and she catches a glimpse of movement.

Suddenly Molly finds herself face-to-face with an intruder who knows far too much about her and her family. As she attempts to protect those she loves most, Molly must also acknowledge her own frailty. Molly slips down an existential rabbit hole where she must confront the dualities of motherhood: the ecstasy and the dread; the languor and the ferocity; the banality and the transcendence as the book hurtles toward a mind-bending conclusion.

 

My Thoughts:

I can’t wait to get my hands on this book! I’ve read a few reviews that have me REALLY intrigued! It sounds like it’s going to be an addictive page-turner.

 

I really can’t wait!!

  1. You’re absolutely right to be looking forward to this one! I loved it and gave it a five-star rating. It’s a one-of-a-kind book and like nothing else you’ve ever read. Hope you get to it soon.
