Waiting on Wednesday: What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick

From the author of My Life Next Door comes a swoony summertime romance full of expectation and regret, humor and hard questions. Gwen Castle's Biggest Mistake Ever, Cassidy Somers, is slumming it as a yard boy on her Nantucket-esque island this summer. He's a rich kid from across the bridge in Stony Bay, and she hails from a family of fishermen and housecleaners who keep the island's summer people happy. Gwen worries a life of cleaning houses will be her fate too, but just when it looks like she'll never escape her past—or the island—Gwen's dad gives her some shocking advice. Sparks fly and secret histories unspool as Gwen spends a gorgeous, restless summer struggling to resolve what she thought was true—about the place she lives, the people she loves, and even herself—with what really is. A magnetic, push-me-pull-me romance with depth, this is for fans of Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Deb Caletti

I should stop picking books that won't be released for awhile because the wait just about kills me! But when I heard this book finally had a cover, I couldn't resist! I adored My Life Next Door and I recommend it to anyone who asks. I don't read contemporary often (or as often as I should) but that book blew me away! It's up there with Anna and the French Kiss. Seriously that good. And then I heard she was writing another book and I just about cried. Thank you Huntley Fitzpatrick for being so awesome.

Unfortunately, this book won't be released until April 15, 2014...that sounds so far away! But I would wait forever for this book!

Oh hello there! My name is Emily, though some of you may know me as the Bookie Monster. As the name would suggest, I devour books like the Cookie Monster devours cookies. In my spare time, I like to bake cookies (and devour those as well) and dream about taking over the world. As if my book obsession wasn't life consuming enough,

I work in the children's room at my local library and I am currently a sophomore in college majoring in English. It's safe to say I'm a bit of a book fanatic. I discreetly shed a few tears on my eleventh birthday when I did not receive my Hogwarts acceptance letter and I waited seven hours outside in the rain just to get a good seat at the Hunger Games midnight premiere. I'm terrified of blood and Disney movies make me cry (in a good way). My passions include hippos, hugs, and Hans Zimmer…and uh,long walks on the beach. I'm just a normal girl w
ith a slightly abnormal and frightfully expensive obsession. Nice to meet you!

    1. also, i'm totally obsessed with hippos too :) for my 3rd anniversary with my boyfriend he gave me a tiny wooden carved hippo he got when he went to Africa years ago and now he's my guardian hippo :) Once christmas rolls around I sing I want a hippopotamus for christmas all the time haha

    2. Oh my gosh! That is my favorite Christmas song as well. My family gets so annoyed because I sing it all year round! (I have yet to actually receive a hippo for Christmas...)
