Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This is actually going to be my last week taking part in the Waiting on Wednesday weekly feature. At the moment I’m not only posting a Waiting on Wednesday feature but a Top Ten Tuesday one and a Standalone Sunday one. I want to keep to two max on this blog and at the moment I feel like I’ve featured most of the books I am desperately waiting on.
This week my pick is;
Once and For All by Sarah Dessen
Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers
Release Date: 6th June 2017
As bubbly as champagne and delectable as wedding cake, Once and for All, Sarah Dessen’s thirteenth novel, is set in the world of wedding planning, where crises are routine.
Louna, daughter of famed wedding planner Natalie Barrett, has seen every sort of wedding: on the beach, at historic mansions, in fancy hotels and clubs. Perhaps that’s why she’s cynical about happily-ever-after endings, especially since her own first love ended tragically. When Louna meets charming, happy-go-lucky serial dater Ambrose, she holds him at arm’s length. But Ambrose isn’t about to be discouraged, now that he’s met the one girl he really wants.
Sarah Dessen’s many, many fans will adore her latest, a richly satisfying, enormously entertaining story that has everything—humour, romance, and an ending both happy and imperfect, just like life itself.
When it comes to YA contemporary authors Sarah Dessen is not only the first I discovered but one of my favourites. While I still have some of her most recent releases on my to-read list I have high hopes for them, and this one is no exception. From the sounds of the blurb Once and For All has all the makings of a classic Dessen story and I know I’m going to love it just as much as all her other books.
So what does everyone think; is Once and For All a must on anyone else’s to-read list or are there any other books that you can’t wait for to be released?
Also to celebrate reaching my one year blogiversary I am hosting a giveaway and Q&A. The chance to enter and ask me any questions ends in less than a week, on the 1st of December at midnight GMT. For more information you can check out my original post here.
