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:
Girl on the Run

Abigail Johnson
Age/Genre: Young Adult, Thriller
Publisher: Underlined
Release Date: October 6, 2020
A fast-paced original paperback thriller about a girl who discovers that her mother might not be who she says she is . . . and now someone is hunting them both.

Katelyn wants the best for her widowed mom. Surprising her with an online dating profile seems like a good idea.

It isn't. Katelyn's mom hasn't just been acting overprotective all these years--she's been hiding something. And now that anyone can find them online, Katelyn is in a desperate race against time to uncover the secrets of the past--not only her mom's, but also her own.

As Katelyn's world unravels, she begins to trust the guy who brought this nightmare to her door and to doubt the one person she never thought she would. Because her mom has been hiding for a reason: she's been waiting.
Why I want to read this book

This is not really my norm, but I love Abigail Johnson. I have read all her books and rated them very high. I feel that even if I am not a regular thriller reader, I will enjoy a story she crafts. 

Shuffle, Repeat

Jen Klein
Age/Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publisher: Random House
Release Date: May 3, 2016
When Harry Met Sally for YA romance readers. This opposites-attract love story is perfect for fans of Huntley Fitzpatrick, Stephanie Perkins, and Jenny Han.

June wants high school to end and real life to begin. Oliver is soaking up senior year’s glory days. They could have coasted through high school, knowing about—but not really knowing—each other.

Except that their moms have arranged for Oliver to drive June to school. Every. Single. Day.

Suddenly these two opposites are fighting about music, life . . . pretty much everything. But love is unpredictable. When promises—and hearts—get broken, Oliver and June must figure out what really matters. And then fight for it.
Why I want to read this book

To be honest, I don't remember when I bought this book, but according to Goodreads, I shelved it back in 2016. Needless to say, it's been in my life for several years. I was obviously drawn to the idea of a teen When Harry Met Sally (a classic!), but I also like the opposites attract and meddling moms involved in this story. I anticipate some fun and feels. 

What are you waiting on?
