What I'm Waiting On...

Title: Kissing in America
Author: Margo Rabb
Publisher: Harper
Publication Date: May 26, 2015
Acclaimed writer Margo Rabb’s Kissing in America is “a wonderful novel about friendship, love, travel, life, hope, poetry, intelligence, and the inner lives of girls,” raves internationally bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love).

In the two years since her father died, sixteen-year-old Eva has found comfort in reading romance novels—118 of them, to be exact—to dull the pain of her loss that’s still so present. Her romantic fantasies become a reality when she meets Will, who seems to truly understand Eva’s grief. Unfortunately, after Eva falls head-over-heels for him, he picks up and moves to California without any warning. Not wanting to lose the only person who has been able to pull her out of sadness—and, perhaps, her shot at real love—Eva and her best friend, Annie, concoct a plan to travel to the west coast to see Will again. As they road trip across America, Eva and Annie confront the complex truth about love.

In this honest and emotional journey that National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr calls “gorgeous, funny, and joyous,” readers will experience the highs of infatuation and the lows of heartache as Eva contends with love in all of its forms.

Why I'm Waiting...

Okay... I'm cheating again because I also have an ARC of this title, and I'm participating in the blog tour. I promise you that I haven't read it yet, though!

I'm not sure if many people who follow my blog know this, but I kind of love poetry. I've always loved reading it, and I've actually been writing poetry since I was a small child. When I saw that Margo Rabb was including poetry in this one, I knew I had to have it. I'm also particularly drawn to emotional books, and this novel seems like it's going to have plenty of what I enjoy reading about.

What Are You Waiting On...

Now I want to know what you're waiting on! Feel free to let me know in the comments by either saying what book or books you're eagerly waiting for, or leave me the link to your own Waiting on Wednesday post! I'd love to see what everyone is waiting for and possibly add more books to my TBR!


  1. The cover for this looks like Heather Demetrios' I'll Meet You There.

    In any case, this sounds intriguing. And a blurb from Sara Zarr! Plus, I can totally get behind a girl who's read 118 romance novels. So good. Great pick! Adding to my TBR list :)

    1. It does look a lot like it. I saw a post about similar covers, and this one was at the top of the list.

      I agree! 118 is a lot of romance novels, but right up my alley for an enjoyable read. I hope you enjoy it! :)

  2. This one definitely sounds interesting! I'll be keeping an eye out for it once it releases :)

    Great pick!

    1. I'm sO happy you added it to your TBR. I hope you enjoy it, Christy! :D

  3. I just started it this morning, and it's pretty good so far. I hope you enjoy it, Christy! :)
