This book is truly an emotional rollercoaster. One minute it had me crying from laughing so hard. The next minute I was screaming “Awe hell nah” and wanting to throw the book in the corner. The author must have known this would be the reaction of most readers as the next sentence I read after having this feeling was, “reader, don’t throw the book.” What the hell? At some point, I actually wanted to start a fire and throw the book in it but since I was reading my beloved Kindle, I couldn’t.

I am love sick and food is the cure

I really enjoyed this novel and felt like I received some answers to the low self-esteem issues. Ms. Hudson will do a number on your emotions with this one. You will want to kill the main character and other times you won’t be able to do anything but laugh because she just seems that dumb. Other times you will only feel compassion for her and want to treat her like she’s your child

This book had me laughing so much and at time I was shaking my head thinking no one could be this dumb or stupid. Close to the end it had me in tears. This is a very good book that you'll remember for a long time. Wanda D Hudson has been added to my favorite author list.

Whew! What a hot mess! I hope and pray this was fiction because I can NOT even phathom this being someone's reality. Wanda's lack of worth in this book is beyond sad. I don't know what happened with the relationship with her father because in the beginning he had love and affection for her but as she began to struggle with her weight the verbal abuse was atrocious! This story was comical with a sad twist. Many times while reading I was screaming at Wanda. I got so mad, I threw my Kindle, put it ...more

Love Yourself!

In her novel, "Wait For Love," Wanda Hudson explores the evolution of one woman blinded by the idea of love - "I gave into any and everything a man wanted. My life's mission was to have one and make him happy even if I wasn't."

The protagonist, Lynnde, spends her young adulthood in pursuit of love. With a single-minded determination, Lynnde manages to go from one bad relationship (I use the term lightly!) to the next, only finding solace in food. As her emotions run the gamut, so

Recommends it for: no one
I was able to make it 63% of this book before I completely gave up. I can't distinguish if the author was bad or it was just the character that annoyed me. I thihk it was both. The book was VERY repetitive. I got tired of the main character, Lynnde, saying the same thing over and over. I also did not like how Lynnde kept speaking to the reader. As far as those problems, that is definitely directed toward the author. I will say the author did do a good job as making Lynnded look totally stupid. I ...more

This novel is so witty and down right funny. WAIT FOR LOVE is definitely poignant in showing a black girl's struggles and challenges to overcome the obstacles she faces while meeting men who are not genuinely meant for her. While self-esteem is an issue in the main character's life, loving yourself first is the ultimate moral of this story. The author has a great sense of humor which will keep you turning the pages.
