"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's WoW selection is...
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Series: companion novel to Anna and the French Kiss & Lola and the Boy Next Door
Publication Date: September 17, 2013
Why I'm waiting: I only recently discovered the awesomeness that is Stephanie Perkins, but it was like love at first, er, read. I listened to the audio for Anna and then I read Lola along with Em (not her first read, but she wanted to read along with me), and in all probability, Em and I will be reading Isla together, too. If there was ever an author I was going to stalk, it would be this one. She writes books that make my heart sososo happy. I am so hoping for a happy ending for Isla and Josh. And I can't wait to see more of Anna, Étienne, Lola and Cricket. (Especially Cricket!)
Also I LOVE the new covers. Admittedly, I wished they had been released prior to my purchase of the hardcovers, but que sera sera. I know some people are disappointed with the cover changes, but I love them. The setting in each of these novels becomes a character in itself, and I love that the new covers showcase them so beautifully. And the color scheme is so fun! I actually kind of want to purchase Anna and Lola again so I can have these beauties on my shelf...and I never do that.
What are you waiting on this week? Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so I can stop by!
