Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This week my pick is;
Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Release Date: 4th April 2017
Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the New York Times bestselling To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You.
Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbour, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.
But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family – and possibly the boy she loves – behind.
When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?
After finally getting around to reading the first two Lara Jean books I immediately added Always and Forever, Lara Jean to my to-read list despite the lack of cover and blurb. Although I felt the ending to P.S. I Still Love You could have been a satisfying end to Lara Jean’s and Peter’s story I’m really glad there’s another book being released next year.
So what does everyone think; is Always and Forever, Lara Jean a must on anyone else’s to-read list or are there any other books that you can’t wait for to be released?
