Well, welcome back!
Before we get started, don’t forget that Waiting on Wednesday is weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to promote upcoming releases that we’re excited about!
How (Not) to Find a Boyfriend by Allyson Valentine Schrier is the book that I’m waiting on this week. Doesn’t it sound like a fun read?!
Sophomore Nora Fulbright is the most talented and popular new cheerleader on the Riverbend High cheer squad. Never mind that she used to be queen of the nerds—a chess prodigy who answered every question first, aced every test and repelled friends at every turn—because this year, Nora is determined to fully transition from social pupa to full-blown butterfly, even if it means dumbing down her entire schedule. But when funny, sweet and very cute Adam moves to town and steals Nora’s heart with his untra-smarts and illegally cute dimple, Nora has a problem. How can she prove to him that she’s not a complete airhead? Nora devises a seemingly simple plan to barter her way into Adam’s classes that involves her classmates, friends—and her older brother Phil’s award-winning AP history paper. But soon, Nora can barely keep track of her trades, and struggles to stay in control of her image. In the end, the only thing that can save Nora is a chess tournament—that she has to compete in wearing her cheerleading uniform. Can she prove to everyone that she can be both a butterfly and a nerd?
I have quite some time to wait as How (Not) to Find a Boyfriend isn’t scheduled for release until June 13. Summer?! Summer?! I have to wait all that time for a book I’m pretty sure I’m going to enjoy?! Well, I guess it does sound like a good beach/poolside read!
Are there any books you’re waiting for this week?
