Waiting on Wednesday (95)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Because I haven't done this MEME for a couple of weeks, I decided to include more than one upcoming release....

 Are You Going to Kiss Me Now? by Sloane Tanen

High school junior Francesca Manning is an outsider, an aspiring writer and secret devourer of celebrity gossip mags. A fake essay to Seventeen wins her the celeb-schmoozing opportunity of a lifetime, but after the plane crashes, she's stranded on a desert island with five of the most clueless, self-involved headcases to escape Hollywood. Happily skewering their foibles in witty observations on her iPhone proves surprisingly educational for Francesca. The group must work together to survive-if they don't insult each other to death first.
This looks like the perfect light read! I love the whole desert island with five clueless celebs aspect. And I love the title even more!

The Summer of Firsts and Lasts by Terra Elan McVoy

Three sisters. One life-changing summer.
Calla loves summer because summer means Duncan. They’ve been best friends for years, but Calla has never worked up the nerve to tell him how she really feels. This summer, the summer before college, is Calla's last chance.

Violet isn't much of a rule breaker in real life. But this isn't real life, this is summer, and Violet is determined to make the most of it. Besides, a little sneaking out never hurt anyone. And sneaking out with James is 100% worth the risk...even though James is completely off-limits.

Daisy has never been the sister that boys notice, but when sparks fly with Joel at the first bonfire of summer, it seems so easy and right. So why is being his girlfriend so complicated?

This one looks great as well! I've never read anything by Tera before, though I've heard nothing but praise for her previous books so maybe this will be a good place to start at.

 Instructions for a Broken Heart by Kim Culberston

Three days before her drama club's trip to Italy, Jessa Gardner discovers her boyfriend in the costume barn with another girl. Jessa is left with a care package from her best friend titled "Top Twenty Reasons He's a Slimy Jerk Bastard," instructing her to do one un-Jessa-like thing each day of the trip. At turns hilarious and heartwrenching, Instructions for a Broken Heart paints a magical Italy in which Jessa learns she must figure out life-and romance-for herself.

This looks really, really good as well, and "Top Twenty Reasons He's a Slimy Jerk Bastard" made me laugh when I read the summary so I'm sold.

  2. Laura and I have been talking about ARE YOU GOING TO KISS ME NOW since we saw it online a few weeks ago. I've even tried cyberstalking the author to convince her to do an interview on our blog. No luck so far so we might have to bribe someone at Sourcebooks for a copy....
