Waiting on Wednesday: We’ll Always Have Summer
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
My pick for this week is:
Available April 26, 2011 from S&S
Belly has only ever been in love with two boys, both with the last name Fisher. And after being with Jeremiah for the last two years, she’s almost positive he is her soul mate. Almost. Conrad has not gotten over the mistake he made when he let Belly go even as Jeremiah has always known that Belly is the girl for him. So when Belly and Jeremiah decide to make things forever, Conrad realizes that it’s now or never–tell Belly he loves her, or lose her for good. Belly will have to confront her feelings for Jeremiah and Conrad and face a truth she has possibly always known: she will have to break one of their hearts.
I rarely feature any children’s or YA books for WoW, for reasons some of you may know (conflict of interest and all that corporate jazz), but I have to make the exception here. Jenny Han’s books have got me hooked. If it wasn’t for book club, I would never have picked up the first book. I’ve become so pessimistic when it comes to romance in YA books, or even other books, that I just had given up. But something happened. I couldn’t wait to read book two, and fortunately, was able to read a galley of the third one. Not only me, but me and several other ladies that I work with (who are part of the book club) have also fallen under Belly, Jeremiah and Conrad’s spell. In anticipation of the third book coming out and her doing a signing event on release day in NYC, I’m buying all three in hardcover and going to the signing as a fangirl. Me and all my other book club friends too.
