Waiting On Wednesday ~ 3/6/19

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!

Fifteen-year-old Simran "Simi" Sangha comes from a long line of Indian vichole-matchmakers-with a rich history for helping parents find good matches for their grown children. When Simi accidentally sets up her cousin and a soon-to-be lawyer, her family is thrilled that she has the "gift."

But Simi is an artist, and she doesn't want to have anything to do with relationships, helicopter parents, and family drama. That is, until she realizes this might be just the thing to improve her and her best friend Noah's social status. Armed with her family's ancient guide to finding love, Simi starts a matchmaking service-via an app, of course.

But when she helps connect a wallflower of a girl with the star of the boys' soccer team, she turns the high school hierarchy topsy-turvy, soon making herself public enemy number one. 

Available September 10, 2019 from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Why am I waiting?  The cover is cute but the blurb really caught my attention.  I need to know what happens with this social mess.  Hehe

Why am I waiting? Oh, my friends. You probably don't know this about me, but I am a HUGE Poe fan. I have a pretty, massive, could-literally-be-a-weapon hardcover collection of his works and it's one of my favorite things. I've been drooling over this anthology since the day it was announced. And now there is this COVER which I am making all the heart eyes over!! I cannot. wait. to get this one in my hands!!!!!

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

  1. Nice picks! Both are new to me but the second one sounds really intriguing! I love when authors re-imagine already told tales! It reminds me of the Grim anthology that came out some years ago! Hoping it has the same gorgeous style for that matter! Lol!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!
