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:
The Meet-Cute Project

Rhiannon Richardson
Age/Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release Date: January 12, 2021
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before meets Save the Date in this sweet and hijinks-filled rom-com about a teen girl who will do whatever it takes to find a date for her sister’s wedding.

Mia’s friends love rom-coms. Mia hates them. They’re silly, contrived, and not at all realistic. Besides, there are more important things to worry about—like how to handle living with her bridezilla sister, Sam, who’s never appreciated Mia, and surviving junior year juggling every school club offered and acing all of her classes.

So when Mia is tasked with finding a date to her sister’s wedding, her options are practically nonexistent.

Mia’s friends, however, have an idea. It’s a little crazy, a little out there, and a lot inspired by the movies they love that Mia begrudgingly watches too.

Mia just needs a meet-cute.
Why I want to read this book

Like you all don't know I added this to my TBR because the title included "meet-cute". I love a good meet-cute, and I am hoping I get to read about a few in this book. There is also mentions of "rom-com" and "hijinks", which are two things I adore. But, what is this? A rom-com hating character, who must find a date for her sister's wedding. I just see so much potential in this story, and I think it will be a delight to read.  

Ask Again Later

Liz Czukas
Age/Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: March 11, 2014
Despite what her name might suggest, Heart has zero interest in complicated romance. So when her brilliant plan to go to prom with a group of friends is disrupted by two surprise invites, Heart knows there's only one drama-free solution: flip a coin.

Heads: The jock. He might spend all night staring at his ex or throw up in the limo, but how bad can her brother's best friend really be?

Tails: The theater geek...with a secret. What could be better than a guy who shares all Heart's interests--even if he wants to share all his feelings?

Heart's simple coin flip has somehow given her the chance to live out both dates. But where her prom night ends up might be the most surprising thing of all...
Why I want to read this book

This is an oldie, but goodie. I added it to my TBR back in May of 2016, because the promise of prom and alternate timelines has me giddy. I know I am already curious to see what happens with Heart and her two prom dates. 

What are you waiting on?
