Can't Wait Wednesday!


Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I am combining CWW with Books From the Backlog hosted by Carole at Carole's Random Life in Books. This will allow me to feature some newly "rediscovered" books, which I plan on reading, alongside a new release.

This week I can't wait for:

Blog Tour: Not Another Love Song - Olivia Wildenstein


Not Another Love Song

Olivia Wildenstein
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Goodreads
An aspiring teenage singer finds herself playing a different tune when she falls for a boy who could jeopardize her future dreams in Olivia Wildenstein's romantic YA novel, Not Another Love Song.

Angie has studied music her entire life, nurturing her talent as a singer. Now a high school senior, she has an opportunity to break into Nashville's music scene via a songwriting competition launched by her idol, Mona Stone. Discouraged by her mother, who wishes Angie would set more realistic life goals, she nonetheless pours her heart and soul into creating a song worthy of Mona.

But Angie's mother is the least of her concerns after she meets Reedwood High’s newest transfer student, Ten. With his endless collection of graphic tees, his infuriating attitude, smoldering good looks, and endearing little sister, Ten toys with the rhythm of Angie’s heart.

She’s never desired anything but success until Ten entered her life. Now she wants to be with him and to be a songwriter for Mona Stone, but she can’t have both.

And picking one means losing the other.

Top Ten Tuesday: Highly Anticipating

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is...

Highly Anticipating!


We are halfway through 2020. Can you believe it? With half the year behind us, it is time to think about our next batch of anticipated books. You all know I have an endless TBR, so I am going to focus on YA books, which I don't already have. Most of these are by authors I have grown to love, but a few are new-to-me, and I am very excited to get acquainted with their storytelling.

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer Reading

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is...

Summer Reading!


This week, I will be sharing ten books I KNOW I will be reading this summer. I selected from my YA review books, and therefore, the publication dates pretty much decided what I would read (to some degree).

Discussion: TBR Trials and Tribulations


This Week’s Topic:
TBR TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS


This past week's Top Ten Tuesday focused on those books we added to our TBR, and forgot about. While I was reading the comments, I noticed many talking about the how and the why of their TBR troubles, and I thought I would let us gather, and really discuss it this week.

Blog Tour: The Falling in Love Montage - Ciara Smyth


The Falling in Love Montage
Ciara Smyth
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publisher: HarperTeen
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Goodreads
Saoirse doesn’t believe in love at first sight or happy endings. If they were real, her mother would still be able to remember her name and not in a care home with early onset dementia. A condition that Saoirse may one day turn out to have inherited. So she’s not looking for a relationship. She doesn’t see the point in igniting any romantic sparks if she’s bound to burn out.

But after a chance encounter at an end-of-term house party, Saoirse is about to break her own rules. For a girl with one blue freckle, an irresistible sense of mischief, and a passion for rom-coms.

Unbothered by Saoirse’s no-relationships rulebook, Ruby proposes a loophole: They don’t need true love to have one summer of fun, complete with every cliché, rom-com montage-worthy date they can dream up—and a binding agreement to end their romance come fall. It would be the perfect plan, if they weren’t forgetting one thing about the Falling in Love Montage: when it’s over, the characters actually fall in love… for real.
