“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 WoW pick was a no-brainer:
The first book in an original mystery series following popular television sleuth Veronica Mars, all grown up and back in action after the feature film funded by a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign.
Twenty-eight-year-old Veronica Mars is back in the game after the events of Veronica Mars: The Movie. With the help of old friends-Logan Echolls, Mac Mackenzie, Wallace Fennel, and even Dick Casablancas-Veronica is ready to take on Neptune’s darkest cases with her trademark sass and smarts.
If you haven’t watched Veronica Mars yet, I BEG you to start. LISTEN TO THESE BRILLIANT LINES.
Rob Thomas, the writer and showrunner of Veronica Mars, started his career by writing Rats Saw God (a YA book). Veronica Mars, to me, is one of the ultimate YA shows of all time – great, strong female protagonist, sassy lines, funny, dark, romantic…it’s got everything.
Do yourself a favour and watch this series. Then go watch the movie coming out March 14. And then pick up this book that continues the story after the movie.
Have you watched Veronica Mars? Are you excited about the Kickstarter-funded movie (I am, but I’m a backer, so obvs)? Will you be picking up The Thousand Dollar Tan Line? What are you waiting for this week? Let me know in the comments!
