It’s that time again – time to talk anticipated releases for Waiting on Wednesday! WoW is a weekly meme hosted on Breaking the Spine. Here’s what I’m waiting on this week:
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
Description (from Goodreads):
Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.
Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.
There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker, Reid. He’s a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.
Release Date: April 11, 2017
Why I’m Waiting: I absolutely LOVED Becky Albertalli’s first book, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, so when I heard she had another book coming out I knew it was going on the autobuy list! Much like SvtHSA before it, The Upside of Unrequited promises to be another heartfelt and humous coming-of-age story that I can’t wait to get my hands on.
What about you, book lovers – what are you waiting on this Wednesday?
