Waiting on Wednesday (8)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we "can't-wait-to-read".

Somebody Everybody Listens To by Suzanne Supplee
Release date: May 13th 2010
Summary: (taken from Amazon)

Retta Lee Jones is blessed with a beautiful voice and has big dreams of leaving her tiny Tennessee hometown. With a beaten down car, a pocketful of hard-earned waitressing money, and stars in her eyes, Retta sets out to make it big in Nashville. But the road to success isn’t a smooth one in a town filled with dreamers, and Retta begins to have doubts: can she make her mark while staying true to herself?

From the breakout author of Artichoke’s Heart, this bighearted novel is a must-read for anyone who has ever chased a dream (or hummed along with Taylor Swift). 

I absolutely love reading books that deal with music, and I haven't read many of them, so I can't wait. This just looks like such a great entertaining read. I've already read a couple of raving reviews claiming that this is a unique story. I'm very excited! :)

Sounds awesome. Reminds me of a film I used to love The Thing Called Love (1993)

Check it out if you want to see a young River Phoenix, Sandra Bullock, Samantha Mathis, and Dermot Mulroney.

Sounds interesting but a tad over done, hope there is more to it than just what the summary says.

I haven't heard of this book, but like Juju it reminds me of the movie That Thing Called Love. Hmm, I will have to look for it come May 13.
