#CuddlesByVal ~ 3/4/15

This is our version of Waiting on Wednesday but with more cuddles, books we can't wait to cuddle for various reasons.

What are we waiting on this week?  THIS!

The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak is Stonewall Book Award-winning author Brian Katcher’s hilarious he said/she said romance about two teens recovering from heartbreak and discovering themselves on an out-of-this-world accidental first date.

It all begins when Ana Watson's little brother, Clayton, secretly ditches the quiz bowl semifinals to go to the Washingcon sci-fi convention on what should have been a normal, résumé-building school trip.

If slacker Zak Duquette hadn't talked up the geek fan fest so much, maybe Clayton wouldn't have broken nearly every school rule or jeopardized Ana’s last shot at freedom from her uptight parents.

Now, teaming up with Duquette is the only way for Ana to chase down Clayton in the sea of orcs, zombies, bikini-clad princesses, Trekkies, and Smurfs. After all, one does not simply walk into Washingcon.

But in spite of Zak's devil-may-care attitude, he has his own reasons for being as lost as Ana-and Ana may have more in common with him than she thinks. Ana and Zak certainly don’t expect the long crazy night, which begins as a nerdfighter manhunt, to transform into so much more…

Available May 19th from Katherine Tegen Books

Why am I waiting? may not know this but I'm a math nerd, math teacher, actually.  (Teach math and technology)  So when I see equations, improbability and theory all hanging out on the cover of a BOOK?  Well that just does it for me.  So, I'm down for this one.

Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in BetweenOn the night before they leave for college, Clare and Aidan only have one thing left to do: figure out whether they should stay together or break up. Over the course of twelve hours, they'll retrace the steps of their relationship, trying to find something in their past that might help them decide what their future should be. The night will lead them to friends and family, familiar landmarks and unexpected places, hard truths and surprising revelations. But as the clock winds down and morning approaches, so does their inevitable goodbye. The question is, will it be goodbye for now or goodbye forever?

This new must-read novel from Jennifer E. Smith, author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, explores the difficult choices that must be made when life and love lead in different directions.

Available September 1st from Poppy

Why am I waiting? Because Jennifer E. Smith's books make my heart literally soar. I've only read two so far (You Are Here and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight), but I am absolutely certain that Jennifer E. Smith deserves a spot on my auto-buy authors list. I am so pumped for this book, y'all. Serious grabby hands are happening over here!

That's what we're waiting on this week! What do you think? What are you waiting on? Leave us a comment!


  1. The Impossible Theory looks like it will be a geek feast of epic portions. Not so sure about Hello, Goodbye though- hoping it ends in HEA.

  2. Both of these sound really good and The Impossible Theory sounds so different, so thats a plus. Great picks.

  3. Ana & Zak sounds really good. I have Jennifer E. Smith's new book on my tbr. Hopefully we enjoy reading both books.
