Waiting on Wednesday (14)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme created and hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Each week, meme participants create a post about a book that they are eagerly waiting on... Get it? It could be a book that is being released soon or it could be a book that is still months away from publication - as long as it's not published and you're waiting on it, you're good to go!

Waiting On... 

Title: 99 Days
Author: Katie Cotugno
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Publication Date: April 21, 2015
From the acclaimed author of How to Love comes another stunning contemporary novel, perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen.

Molly Barlow is facing one long, hot summer--99 days--with the boy whose heart she broke and the boy she broke it for . . . his brother.

Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that's how I know everyone still remembers everything. She has every right to hate me, of course: I broke Patrick Donnelly's heart the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. Now I'm serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn't finished. I'm expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it's just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. "For what it's worth, Molly Barlow," he says, "I'm really glad you're back."

Day 12: Gabe wouldn't quit till he got me to come to this party, and I'm surprised to find I'm actually having fun. I think he's about to kiss me--and that's when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who's supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who's never going to forgive me.

Why I'm Waiting...

I adored Katie's debut novel, How to Love, and I immediately declared her as one of my favorite authors. This book seems like it will be a cute and quirky contemporary. I really like the synopsis, and I can't wait to see how Molly deals with these two brothers.

As always, feel free to let me know what books you're waiting on in the comments.


  1. This one sounds like a really great contemporary! I'm.excited to see how the 99 days go for Molly :-)

    1. When I finished How to Love, I said that I'd read anything by Katie. I'll probably end up getting this one on release day. lol

  2. I have never read her book How To Love, but I actually have a review copy of this one and I am looking forward to when I can read it! It sounds good to me :)

    I tagged you in a tag:

    1. OMG. I am so jealous that you have a review copy of this one. I've been dying to get my hands on one because A. Her first book was amazing - you should totally read it. And B. It seems like the perfect book for me. lol

      Thanks, Olivia. I'll check out the tag! :)
