Waiting on Wednesday (24)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers discuss the books that they are most anxiously waiting for! (And this fabulous button was designed by my dear blogger friend Lindsay at The Violet Hour)

This week I'm waiting on...








Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
© 29 September 2011 by Dutton


Pre-Order It! Amazon

Goodreads Description:
Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion . . . she believes in costume. The more expressive the outfit -- more sparkly, more fun, more wild -- the better. But even though Lola’s style is outrageous, she’s a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood.

When Cricket -- a gifted inventor -- steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.
Stephanie Perkins left me dying for more after I finished Anna and the French Kiss way back in February.  Her writing is simply fabulous and finishing Anna was just an incredibly satisfying moment.  I've heard so many good things about Lola that I simply can't wait to get my hands on a copy! I am first in line for it at the library when it comes it, but there's a chance that I'll just go ahead and buy my own copy!



Also, I figured I would combine this post with W.W.W. Wednesdays...so here is some more info about my reading for this week! To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…Grab the logo...and post your link at Should Be Reading!

I've not read Lola and the French Kiss.  I need to do that soon.  I've heard good things about it.  As for what you may be reading, OMG do read Witchlanders, its available on Simon and Schuster's Galley Grab til Aug. 30th.  I'm 100 pages from the end and it is soooooo gooooood!!!  

I also just finished up The Unwanteds, curious to hear your thoughts. I liked it a lot.  What a unique and creative story line.

I can't wait for Lola to come out because Anna and the French Kiss was fantastic.  Once in a Full Moon sounds amazing.  I hope you are enjoying it.  Here's my WoW:

Hi, Jessi!  Thanks for commenting on my WOW, and becoming a follower!! 

I've heard a lot of good things about Perkins, too, so I think this book, as well as "Anna and the French Kiss"  (what a GREAT title!), will both go in my TBR pile!!

Thanks for the recommendations!!  : )

A Canadian Girl said...

I'm waiting for Lola too since I loved Anna and the French Kiss. I've heard that Cricket is even more swoon-worthy than Etienne!

Becky @ Stories & Sweeties said...

I whole-heartedly agree with Lola! I loved Anna & Etienne...sigh.
Isn't it September 29th yet??

Marla said...

I'm finally returning your WoW visit.  Sorry it took so long.  I was pretty sick for 2 days and all I did was tweet and read. 

I just finished Anna and the French Kiss yesterday and absolutely loved it!  I can't wait to read Lola.  Awesome choice!

kaye (paper reader) said...

I just bought Shade myself after hearing lots of things about Zach during the battle of YA characters. The Unwanteds is one I'm very much looking forward to reading, it seems like such fun!

Is it shameful to say that I haven't read Anna yet?
