#WaitingOnWednesday: Release by Patrick Ness


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!

This week I am eagerly anticipating:


Release by Patrick Ness

Inspired by Mrs Dalloway and Judy Blume’s Forever, Release is one day in the life of Adam Thorn, 17. It’s a big day. Things go wrong. It’s intense, and all the while, weirdness approaches…Adam Thorn is having what will turn out to be the most unsettling, difficult day of his life, with relationships fracturing, a harrowing incident at work, and a showdown between this gay teen and his preacher father that changes everything. It’s a day of confrontation, running, sex, love, heartbreak, and maybe, just maybe, hope. He won’t come out of it unchanged. And all the while, lurking at the edges of the story, something extraordinary and unsettling is on a collision course.

Release Date: May 4th 2017

  1. I’ve only read 1 other Patrick Ness book & that was A Monster Calls, Loved it! & now Release has caught my attention. I know this one will probably break me, but I love a good cry. Great pick 😉

    1. Oh man, A Monster Calls definitely broke me and it seems like Release might just do the same thing. I highly recommend More Than This as well. That was my first Patrick Ness book and it just blew me away!
