What I'm Waiting On...

  Title: Love Fortunes and Other Disasters
Author: Kimberly Laralius
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Publication Date: May 12, 2015
In the tradition of Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic, one girl chooses to change her fortune and her fate by falling in love.

Love is real in the town of Grimbaud, and Fallon Dupree has dreamed of attending high school there for years. After all, generations of Duprees have successfully followed the (100% accurate!) love fortunes from Zita’s famous Love Charms Shop to happily marry their high school sweethearts. It’s a tradition. So she is both stunned and devastated when her fortune states that she will NEVER find love.

Fortunately, Fallon isn’t the only student with a terrible love fortune, and a rebellion is brewing. Fallon is determined to take control of her own fate—even if it means working with a notorious heartbreaker like Sebastian.

Will Fallon and Sebastian be able to overthrow Zita’s tyranny and fall in love?

Why I'm Waiting...

While I've never read Practical Magic, I've always wanted to because I love the idea of one being able to change his/her own fate. (Hello... Brave is one of my favorite Disney and Pixar movies for a reason!) It's just such an empowering concept!

I think the plot of this book looks adorable, and I'm kind of curious to read about the three generations of Duprees who have had successful love fortunes. More importantly, I want to see just why Fallon's fortune says she will never find love because I often feel that way. 

What Are You Waiting On...
