Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
I’ve been trying to stray from reading anything in the YA contemporary romance genre recently. Mostly because I’ve realized that it’s detrimental to my health. I don’t need more reasons to further delve into my hopeless romantic shell. Trust me, it’s better for me (and you, honestly) that I keep these books at arm’s length. But, I had to request this one. I know… excuses, excuses, and more excuses. I’ll stop requesting after this one. I promise? I think. Yes, okay. Hmm. Hold me to this, people of the interwebs? 🙂
I’ve been totally slackin’ on posts in the past week. I’m sorry! I went on a spontaneous trip to Switzerland and New York so everything has been a little spotty. I still don’t exactly know where I am or what time it is despite the number of times that I look at my clock and calendar. Everything will get sorted soon, I promise! I’ll be posting about my adventures later on this week and I can’t wait! Lots and lots to tell.
Love and Other Unknown Variables by Shannon Lee Alexander
Charlie Hanson has a clear vision of his future. A senior at Brighton School of Mathematics and Science, he knows he’ll graduate, go to MIT, and inevitably discover solutions to the universe’s greatest unanswered questions. He’s that smart. But Charlie’s future blurs the moment he reaches out to touch the tattoo on a beautiful girl’s neck.
The future has never seemed very kind to Charlotte Finch, so she’s counting on the present. She’s not impressed by the strange boy at the donut shop—until she learns he’s a student at Brighton where her sister has just taken a job as the English teacher. With her encouragement, Charlie orchestrates the most effective prank campaign in Brighton history. But, in doing so, he puts his own future in jeopardy.
By the time he learns she’s ill—and that the pranks were a way to distract Ms. Finch from Charlotte’s illness—Charlotte’s gravitational pull is too great to overcome. Soon he must choose between the familiar formulas he’s always relied on or the girl he’s falling for (at far more than 32 feet per second squared).
Yours truly was just approved for this book on Netgalley! Woop! I’ve already seen this on several people’s WoWs in the past, so this isn’t a very unique pick! In fact, I believe I first saw it on someone’s WoW. But, all WoW popularity aside, this does look like a unique read. It has a 4.33 average rating with 37 reviews so far! AND it may help me with my many, many math problems. It looks like a sweet read! I really hope this isn’t like A Walk to Remember Part II because I sooo do not need a sad book right now in my life.
