Waiting on Wednesday (39)

"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...

Love & Leftovers by Sarah Tregay
© 27 December 2011 by Harper Collins Children's
My wish
is to fall
cranium over Converse
in dizzy, daydream-worthy

When her parents split, Marcie is dragged from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She leaves behind her friends, a group of freaks and geeks called the Leftovers, including her emo-rocker boyfriend, and her father.

By the time Labor Day rolls around, Marcie suspects this "vacation" has become permanent. She starts at a new school where a cute boy brings her breakfast and a new romance heats up. But understanding love, especially when you've watched your parents' affections end, is elusive. What does it feel like, really? can you even know it until you've lost it? 
I don't read many books in verse--just generally my personal preference.  However, this one seriously intrigues me.  I've heard that the story and writing is beautiful so I'm hoping to be able to give it a shot. :)

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!

Great cover!  I love the shoes!  I agree that verse is not my preferred reading style, but I'm definitely intrigued by the blurb.  Here's mine: http://feministfairytalereviews.blogspot.com/2011/11/waiting-on-wednesday-10-croak.html

Hey, Jessi.  Thanks for stopping by.  This is the first I've heard of this one.  The plot sounds interesting.  Nice pick!

Heather said...

Love and Leftovers sounds like it could be good. I will be looking for your review!

Now, I must ask - how can you possibly read four books at once? I'd get so confuzzled! LOL

purplebull said...

only 27 more days left until Love & leftovers comes out, YES! I'm so excited! I hope your liking hushed, it sounds intense! And all those books you finished I'm dying to read! lucky you:D I hopes you love all of them.

Here is my WoW((:

-thank you&come again.

Jessi said...

I have nothing to say about reading that many books at one time other than that I have reading ADD. :)  I am a major mood reader!

Jessi said...

Thanks for stoppin' by, Marla! :)

Jessi said...

I like it so far, but I have to admit that I keep starting and stopping with it.  I think I would like it even more if I would just sit down and devour it! :)

Book Light Graveyard said...

I love books in verse, so this one has me super excited! great pick!

Bookzilla said...

I know the feeling. I'm really scatterbrained lately, which means I'm about halfway through three or four books. :)

Jessi said...

You MUST read Saving June! I loved it. :)  I just started Hushed so I'm not 100% sure how I feel about it yet.

Jessi said...

Right?! That line alone had me going, "yes, please!" Hopefully it's as cute as it sounds!

Sophia Lee said...

Love & Leftovers sounds awesome! The cover is so cute. :)

Hi great blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a lot of work?
I have virtually no understanding of coding however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon.
Anyways, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.

I know this is off subject however I just needed to ask. Appreciate it!
