Waiting on Wednesday #40 – The Inexplicable Logic of My Life


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

This Week I’m Waiting On…..


23447923The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz

Publication: March 7th 2017

Publisher: Clarion Books

Genres: YA, Contemporary, Cultural


From the multi-award-winning author of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe comes a gorgeous new story about love, identity, and families lost and found.

Sal used to know his place with his adoptive gay father, their loving Mexican-American family, and his best friend, Samantha. But it’s senior year, and suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and realizing he no longer knows himself. If Sal’s not who he thought he was, who is he? This humor-infused, warmly humane look at universal questions of belonging is a triumph.

Why Am I Waiting?

Next year will be all about reading  Bicultural & Multicultural books. I love reading diverse stories, and there are quite a few that I want to add to my shelf and read as soon as possible. A Mexican-American family seems like a perfect fit. I haven’t read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe yet but I have it on my shelf, and everyone always recommends it; so I’m eager to try this author. What book are you waiting on this week?

  1. I haven’t read the authors other book but I did hear great things about it so that is always a positive. I hadn’t heard of this but reading more diverse books is always a positive so I’ll have to keep my eye on it!


  2. I read Aristotle and Dante and quite liked that one, so it would be interesting to see what his second book could add to the mix. I didn’t even know he was going to be releasing another one. You have my interest here…


  3. Oh, this sounds like such a WONDERFUL story!! I’m definitely VERY interested in reading it, as I, too, love multicultural stories. Plus, I love coming-of-age novels. This one sure looks like it’s spiked with humor and all the awkwardness of growing up! GREAT PICK!!! I’m adding it to my Goodreads shelves!!

    Thanks for sharing! Also, thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on my own WOW post! So sorry for the late comment back….. Hope you have a TERRIFIC weekend!!


  4. Oh, this sounds so good. I really enjoyed Aristotle and Dante.. I hope you love it. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my WoW earlier. 🙂


  5. I hadn’t heard of this author and the titles are making me curious. This one does sound like a good combo of diversity and coming of age.


  6. This is new to me! Not sure how I missed it but it sounds very interesting…
    Thanks for spotlighting it today!


  7. I haven’t read Aristotle & Dante either, and I do have it on my shelf as well. Both of Sáenz’s books sound amazing though, so I’ll definitely have to get to it! Great pick 😀
