Waiting on Wednesday is a bookish meme created and hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. Each week, bloggers share some of the upcoming titles they are interesting in reading with their followers.
This is one of my favorite memes because I'm kind of an oversharer. So you've probably that Waiting on Wednesday is a frequent feature on my blog.
It's pretty simple to participate in Waiting on Wednesday:
- Create your own Waiting on Wednesday post that features an upcoming title (or titles) - I usually only go with one book a week because seeing all the titles can be a bit overwhelming for me.
- Be sure to credit Jill somewhere in your post (see how I credited her above?)
- Link up to the Linky on Jill's blog so that others can see your post

Russ is a high school football player who feels like he always comes in second to his best friend, Garret. In sports. In school. With girls. Well, he's tired of it, and he gets the rather foolish idea that if he can win the heart of the new girl in town before Garret he can prove he's not just sloppy seconds.
His plan? Use his anime-obsessed sister's group, who has befriended the new girl, to get closer to her. He'd never tell the team, but he's been going to Anime Night for years and might even enjoy it. That would ruin his reputation, just like his secret love for cooking and James Taylor.
But pretending to be something you aren't catches up to you eventually, and Russ can only get away with living two lives for so long. As more than one person reveals they have something to hide, Russ must figure out what and who he really wants in his life. And more than that, he needs the courage to make it happen.
Why I'm Waiting...
I'm going to be completely honest with you. Sidekick by Natalie Whipple is a book that I probably would have never even heard of if it weren't for Goodreads. I saw it pop up on my news feed one day, so I checked it out because I was curious. (And because the cover is pretty freaking sweet!) I immediately added it to my TBR!
So why did I automatically add it? I know what it's like to be the second choice. It's not a fun feeling. I'm really hoping that this book is as interesting and as fun as it seems like it's going to be. I'm also really excited for it because it looks like it's going to be a male POV, and I love YA books that are narrated by male characters.
What Are You Waiting On...
