BOOK LUST is a new feature on the blog, where I will post about the books that I'm looking forward to reading (and most likely reviewing) on the blog. It's inspired by Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine, though this is not going to be a weekly feature on the blog.
I am a sucker for a good love story. Having grown up as a fan of novels by Nicholas Sparks, it was a sincere pleasure to be told about COMEBACK LOVE, a love story that sounds like it would hit my sweet spot perfectly. Because I'm incredibly excited to read this novel, I thought I'd share it with all of you as my book lust pick for the week.

Like Nicholas Sparks and Robert James Waller, first-time novelist Peter Golden knows how to write the kind of nostalgic fiction that men and women alike fall for. In Comeback Love, a universal story about lost love, he offers an evocative debut that begins in the tumultuous 1960s and ends in the feverish thrill of present-day New York City.
Over thirty-five years ago, Gordon Meyers, an aspiring writer with a low number in the draft lottery, packed his belongings and reluctantly drove away, leaving Glenna Rising, the sexy, sharp-witted med student he couldn’t imagine living without.Now, decades later, Gordon is a former globetrotting consultant with a grown son, an ex-wife, and an overwhelming desire to see Glenna again. Stunned when Gordon walks into her Manhattan office, Glenna agrees to accompany him for a drink. As the two head out into the snow-swept city, they become caught up in the passions that drew them together before tearing them apart. And as the evening unfolds, Gordon finally reveals the true reason for his return.Comeback Love is a bracing journey into the hearts of two lovers who came of age in the 1960s. Plumbing the depths of youth, regret, and desire, Peter Golden deftly illuminates the bonds that mysteriously endure in the face of momentous change.
