Waiting on Wednesday: Colleen Hoover and Italy


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The point is to share a book that hasn't been released yet, but one that you are dying to read.

The first one Never Never by Colleen Hoover. It comes out January 2015.

The synopsis:

Best friends since they could walk. In love by the age of fourteen. Dating for over four years. 
She’ll do everything she can to never forget. 
He’ll do everything he can to never remember. 
Too bad it’s not up to them. 

Coming January, 2015.



Why I'm waiting? This synopsis is ridiculously small. Seriously 6 lines and I'm freaking out. This one sounds intriguing. I can't wait to figure out what this book is actually about. The name Hoover was enough to get me hooked actually. 

  What do you guys think?

Add it to your Goodreads shelf. 


The second one is Love Lucy by April Lindner. It comes out on January 27, 2015 and is being published by Poppy.

The synopsis:

While backpacking through Florence, Italy, during the summer before she heads off to college, Lucy Sommersworth finds herself falling in love with the culture, the architecture, the food...and Jesse Palladino, a handsome street musician. After a whirlwind romance, Lucy returns home, determined to move on from her "vacation flirtation." But just because summer is over doesn't mean Lucy and Jesse are over, too. 

In this coming-of-age romance, April Lindner perfectly captures the highs and lows of a summer love that might just be meant to last beyond the season.


Why I'm waiting? I just got back from an 18 month trip in Italy and have always been obsessed with Italy. That right there explains why I want to read it. 

 What do you guys think?

Add it to your Goodreads shelf.



And that's one of the books  I'm dying to read. But enough about me, what book did you guys pick? Please leave your link in the comments section. I love hearing from you guys.


Love,

  3. Colleen Hoover has got to be the best contemporary writer out there. Her Hopeless and Slammed were amazing, and I've heard great things about Ugly Love. Can't wait for Confess and Never Never.

  23. I've never heard of "Never, Never", lol. But it sure has me wondering! Just because off that, I seriously want to read it.

    As for "Love, Lucy", as you know, I had it on my WOW last week. I have not been to Italy in my entire life, so I think you're VERY lucky to have gone there!

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my WOW!! : )
