"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Isla and the Happily Ever After
by Stephanie Perkins
Release Date: Sept. 17, 2013
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.
These days I've been on a contemporary YA romance binge, yet I'm ashamed to say that I haven't read a single Stephanie Perkins novel. (I knoww! What's wrong with meee?) But anywho, I can't wait to read about Anna, Lola, and especially Isla. And if I haven't read the first two by the summer, feel free to stone me (and no, not with cupcakes).
What's your "waiting on" pick this week?
