Joining in on the WOW fun is super easy. All you need to do is create your own Waiting on Wednesday posts that features an upcoming book, credit Jill in your post, and then add your name to the link up tool. Also, it's way more fun if you explore some of the other posts. Trust me on it... I've added a ton of new books to my TBR because of this meme.

What I'm Waiting On... Red Girl, Blue Boy
Series: If Only . . . 
Author: Lauren Baratz-Logsted
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Publication Date: October 20, 2015
Enjoy Red Girl, Blue Boy and the other standalone titles in Bloomsbury’s contemporary If Only romance line centered around an impossible problem: you always want what you can’t have!

Sixteen-year-old Katie and Drew really shouldn’t get along. After all, her father is the Republican nominee for President of the United States while his mother is at the top of the Democratic ticket. But when Katie and Drew are thrown together in a joint interview on a morning talk show, they can’t ignore the chemistry between them. With an entire nation tuned into and taking sides in your parents’ fight, and the knowledge that—ultimately—someone has to lose, how can you fall in love with the one person you’re supposed to hate?

This title in the If Only line is a frank and funny romance that shows how sparks fly when opposites attract.

Why I'm Waiting...

So here's another fun fact about Erin... I've been obsessed with politics since I was a little girl! Now I don't really care for all of the drama that politics cause, but there's just something that's so much fun about becoming really invested in your beliefs for your nation. I even used to say that I wanted to run for the mayor of my town and then eventually become the president. 

I'm sure you can probably guess why I want to read this one now. It's partly because of my obsession with politics and partly because I love forbidden love stories. (Maybe I shouldn't have read Romeo and Juliet so early in life. I can't wait to see how the differences between Katie and Drew's political affiliations will affect their relationship.

What Are You Waiting On?

Now I want to hear from my wonderful readers! Are you also excited for this If Only . . . title? Is there another book that you featured on your blog this week for Waiting on Wednesday? As always, feel free to let me know in the comments, and if you created a Waiting on Wednesday post of your own, link me to it! I'd love to check them out and leave you all some comments!


  1. I still haven't read an If Only... book! I have Not in the Script so hopefully I can change that soon! I'll have to pick this one up too cause it sounds really, really good :)

  2. The only one I read was Wild Hearts, and it wasn't too bad, just a bit annoying. This one looks like it has a little more depth to it though so I'm going to make sure I get my hands on a copy. I hope you enjoy it, Christy! :)

  3. This one is new to me Erin, but it sounds really interesting. I hope you enjoy reading it! Thank you for stopping by My WoW

  4. It's one of the two new If Only . . . titles coming out. I'm featuring the other one next week. lol

    You're welcome! When I saw yours, I got so excited because I loved Emmy & Oliver! I hope you enjoy it!

  5. This book looks so cute! Great pick. I need to get into these books. I love a good cutesy romance!

  6. I've only read one of them, but all of them look very promising - like good beach reads. :)

  7. I love politics in YA!! I've always been fascinated by politics, I'm taking AP Gov next year and I can't wait!! This book reminds me of The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne. I think you'd like it :) Awesome pick!

  8. I do too! I need to compile a list of books with politics. lol

    The Wrong Side of Right has been on my TBR for months now, but I keep forgetting to pick it up. It might be my election day read for my breaks when I'm working the polls next Tuesday.

    I saw you chose Mishma as your new co-blogger. I just started to get to know her on Twitter, and I'm looking forward to what she brings to your blog! :)

  9. It seems like SUCH a cute book :3 It feels like a fun easy read and I think I am going to add it to my TBR list because ROMANCE, duh! Hahaha great job, Erin :)

  10. Doesn't seem adorable? And it's perfect timing with the upcoming presidential election. Maybe those who read and and are close to voting age will become inspired to vote. :)

  11. What a fun sounding read! Love the whole political angle as I haven't seen that before. Great WOW pick!

  12. I hope it turns out being adorable. I've only read one book in this series, but I've seen a lot of good things about many of them.

    I hope you enjoy it!

  13. I haven't seen a lot of them, but it seems like it might be the next trend in contemporary YA.

    Thank you, Terri!

  14. I really hope this one is good!!! I hate politics in real life but in books, it seems so fun!
