Can’t Wait Wednesday – HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH THE DARK by Kathleen Glasgow


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH THE DARK by Kathleen Glasgow.  I was a big fan of Glasgow’s last novel Girl in Pieces, which was a very emotional read for me, so I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on her newest book, which based on that synopsis, promises to be an equally heart-wrenching story.



Publication Date: April 9, 2019

Here is what happens when your mother dies.

It’s the brightest day of summer and it’s dark outside. It’s dark in your house, dark in your room, and dark in your heart. You feel like the darkness is going to split you apart.

That’s how it feels for Tiger. It’s always been Tiger and her mother against the world. Then, on a day like any other, Tiger’s mother dies. And now it’s Tiger, alone.

Here is how you learn to make friends with the dark.

    Glasgow goes a little dark for my taste, but I have heard her stories are very powerful. I am intrigued, though, because I love grief and loss books.

    Oh my gosh, my heart just broke reading this blurb. This is going to be heartbreaking 🙁 But I can see why you picked it this week.

    Ohhhhh I’m absolutely hanging for this one to be released as well! I was such a fan of her debut Girl in Pieces as well, so incredibly moving. This sounds as though it’ll explore grief and depression with a great deal of realism and compassion just enough to break us and hopefully mend us back together again. Wonderful choice this week Suzanne! ♡♡♡

    Well Suzanne this one caught my eyes on Netgalley so I am curious if you get to read it to know if the cover would match the story 😉
