Waiting on Wednesday (#1)


Is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The book I'm most excited about this week is...





Title: The Story of Us
Author: Deb Caletti
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: April 24th 2012






Blurb from Goodreads:

Cricket’s on a self-imposed break from her longtime boyfriend—but she’s picked a bad week to sort out her love life. For one thing, her mother’s romance is taking center stage: After jilting two previous fiancés, her mom is finally marrying Dan Jax, whom Cricket loves. But as wedding attendees arrive for a week of festivities at a guesthouse whose hippie owners have a sweet, sexy son—Ash—complications arise:

Cricket’s future stepsisters make it clear they’re not happy about the marriage. An old friend decides this is the week to declare his love for Cricket. Grandpa chooses to reveal a big secret at a family gathering. Dan’s ex-wife shows up. And even the dogs—Cricket’s old, ill Jupiter and Dan’s young, lively Cruiser—seem to be declaring war.

While Cricket fears that Dan is in danger of becoming ditched husband-to-be number three, she’s also alarmed by her own desires. Because even though her boyfriend looms large in her mind, Ash is right in front of her....


Deb Caletti is on my list of authors that I can’t wait to get around to reading this year. So what better book to start off with, than The Story of Us. Ever since I heard about this book last July I’ve been slightly giddy with anticipation. The cover looks absolutely gorgeous and the story comes across as complicated but fun. I also have a feeling this book will have me sighing with some swoony scenes.

I‘d love to hear your thoughts on my pick and what you’re waiting on this week.

  3. First, welcome to the world of 'Waiting on Wednesday'! xD

    So, when I first saw the title of the novel that you had picked out, I immediately thought of that Taylor Swift song by the same title.

    Story of Us looks like a fun read that somehow reminds me of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight.

    Nice pick and thanks for sharing!

  5. This is my first time hearing about this but it sounds great! I'm not a fan of the name 'Cricket' though. ;) I love the cover and hope it ends up being as good as it sounds. Awesome choice, Jasprit! :)

  6. The title sounds sort of sad and the blurb sounds a little confusing.. which often makes the best kind of reads. *g*

  14. You are now officially my go-to girl for amazing contemporaries, J! We can bond over paranormals and dystopians and fantasies, but we both love contemporaries like crazy and I really want to read this one too. I've never read a Deb Caletti book before, but if you say she's great, I'm definitely going to give her books a shot -- starting with this one! :)

    Amazing pick for your WOW this week, Jasprit! I have a feeling that this book will be filled with awesome swoony scenes too -- or at least I hope so! ;) <3
