Can't Wait Wednesday: 10 Things I Can See From Here

Tressa from Wishful Endings has created her own version of Waiting on Wednesday, since the host hasn't posted a link-up in months.

10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac

Due Out: February 28

Official Summary: Maeve has heard it all before. She’s been struggling with severe anxiety for a long time, and as much as she wishes it was something she could just talk herself out of, it’s not. She constantly imagines the worst, composes obituaries in her head, and is always ready for things to fall apart. To add to her troubles, her mom—the only one who really gets what Maeve goes through—is leaving for six months, so Maeve will be sent to live with her dad in Vancouver.

Vancouver brings a slew of new worries, but Maeve finds brief moments of calm (as well as even more worries) with Salix, a local girl who doesn’t seem to worry about anything. Between her dad’s wavering sobriety, her very pregnant stepmom insisting on a home birth, and her bumbling courtship with Salix, this summer brings more catastrophes than even Maeve could have foreseen. Will she be able to navigate through all the chaos to be there for the people she loves?

I haven't heard much about this one but it sounds really interesting. I love books that deal with anxiety and other mental illness because it's important topic. Plus, I suffer from my own anxiety so I can usually relate on some level to these characters. 

What do you think? Do you want to read?

The cover is fun and definitely on trend. I like stories that deal with issues like this too, especially if they're written in a way that they feel authentic. I hope you enjoy it!

Like you, I tend to gravitate towards novels that touch close to home because of something I've seen in my lifetime because I get new tips and ideas. It's also good to see a novel that mimics real life. I was captivated by the cover, which immediately grabbed my attention. Great review! Hugs...

This sounds like a great take on anxiety and I hope it's done well. I like the cover as well. Great pick!

I find it difficult to read about mental illnesses sometimes, but it sure is important to have those books. And from the blurb it does sound like it will be realistically written. That comment about not being able to talk herself out of it rings very true.

I hadn't heard of this one before! I think I will add it to my TBR, although I am always a bit wary of books that deal with mental health and romance because I'm scared they'll fall into the "love cures all" trap. Although the line in the blurb where it says that she experiences brief moments of calm as well as more worries gives me hope that it won't be like that.
