Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books. It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week I am featuring two pre-orders (one physical and one for my Kindle). I rarely pre-order so these are pretty special circumstances.
FROM GOODREADS: At the one-year anniversary of his death, legendary musician Prince's first wife shares a uniquely intimate, candid, and revelatory look inside the personal and professional life of one of the world's most beloved icons.
In The Most Beautiful, a title inspired by the hit song Prince wrote about their legendary love story, Mayte Garcia for the first time shares the deeply personal story of their relationship and offers a singular perspective on the music icon and their world together: from their unconventional meeting backstage at a concert (and the long-distance romance that followed), to their fairy-tale wedding (and their groundbreaking artistic partnership), to the devastating losses that ultimately dissolved their romantic relationship for good. Throughout it all, they shared a bond more intimate than any other in Prince's life. No one else can tell this story or can provide a deeper, more nuanced portrait of Prince--both the famously private man and the pioneering, beloved artist--than Mayte, his partner during some of the most pivotal personal and professional years of his career. The Most Beautiful is a book that will be returned to for decades, as Prince's music lives on with generations to come.
WHY I CAN'T WAIT: First of all, it's Prince and I must add this physical copy to my growing collection. Secondly, I always thought this was one of the most beautiful (not intended) relationships and now I'm a tad worried that Mayte is coming out with this book on the anniversary of his death. He would have never allowed it to be released if he were alive so I'm either going to love it, or hate it AND her for capitalizing in such a tragedy.
Pit Bulls are Sweet . . . and that's no mystery!
