“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pick is one I’ve been waiting on for over a year:
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Expected publication date: September 17, 2013 (aka Not Soon Enough)
From the glittering streets of Manhattan to the moonlit rooftops of Paris, falling in love is easy for hopeless dreamer Isla and introspective artist Josh. But as they begin their senior year in France, Isla and Josh are quickly forced to confront the heartbreaking reality that happily-ever-afters aren’t always forever.
Their romantic journey is skillfully intertwined with those of beloved couples Anna and Étienne and Lola and Cricket, whose paths are destined to collide in a sweeping finale certain to please fans old and new.
Why yes, I am writing this a week ahead because I just saw this cover and I couldn’t stop myself. What of it?
I knew this would be my next WoW pick, and I have a feeling that other people will be featuring it this week as well. Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door are absolutely beautiful contemporary romantics, two of my fave YAs ever, and I cannot WAIT to see how the story ends.
Suffice to say, if you like my blog and you like contemporary romances, and you haven’t read Anna or Lola yet, stop EVERYTHING. Stop reading this blog, get to a library or bookstore, and start reading Stephanie Perkins’ awesome books. You won’t regret it.
By the way, Anna and Lola have new covers as well. They’re available on July 16th! Look how pretty they all look together!
Are you as excited as I am about Isla and the Happily Ever After? What’s on your can’t-wait list this week? Let me know in the comments!
