Waiting on Wednesday #4

Is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases were eagerly anticipating.

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

Title: First Comes Love
Author: Katie Kacvinsky
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Publication date: 8th May

Add to Goodreads

Blurb from Goodreads.
Like his name, Gray is dark and stormy. Dylan, a girl always searching for what's next, seemingly unable to settle down, is the exact opposite: full of light and life. On the outside, they seem like an unlikely couple. But looks can be deceiving and besides, opposites attract.

What starts as friendship, turns into admiration, respect and caring, until finally these two lone souls find they are truly in love with each other.

But staying in love is not as easy as falling in love. If Dylan and Gray want their love to last, they're going to have to work at it. And learn that sometimes love means having to say you're sorry.

My thoughts.
This book hadn’t even hit my radar until a few weeks ago, but by following so many people’s updates I think I’ve fallen in love. There’s nothing more I enjoy more than curling up with a good contemporary romance, especially ones about two individuals who are complete opposites falling for one another. So this book sounds right up my alley.

And that last line “saying you’re sorry…” sorry about what? I hate it when books keep you hanging! I need to know!

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


  1. So, I am starting to sound like a very broken record but I am going to say it again "great pick, Jasprit!" Like you I kept seeing this pop on on blogs/Goodreads and I think it sounds like a great read ;)

  2. I hadn't heard of this one, Jasprit! That kiss on the cover sure does look yummy, though. ;) Look forward to seeing what you think of it!

  3. Oh, I love reading contemporary romances between opposite individuals too, Jasprit! Great pick, adding this on my tbr now. :))

    Eunice @ Book Overdose

  4. I've been waiting for that too for quite some time now. Awesome pick! :D

    Drop by my WoW! :D

  5. This looks really interesting. Sometimes I like to get away from all the paranormal and fantasy stuff I read for something like this. I will have to check this out.

    My WoW

  6. I read very little contemporary romance, but I hope that you love it when you get a chance to read it.
    My WOW...

  7. Wait... THE Katie Kacvinsky? The one that wrote one of my all time favourite Dystopians, AWAKEN? *runs off to Goodreads*

    ComaCalm's WoW...

  8. I didn't know this one before I think, but the cover looks interesting. So.. minimalistic. It's just their faces and they look so.. clean, you know? I like that a lot!

    And the blurb sounds so good. Especially the part about how they admire and respect eachother. Oh, I want this novel now!

    Patricia // My WOW

  9. Enjoy! your choice, looks interesting.

  10. That last line of the blurb definitely has me on edge too Jasprit! I need to know what their sorry about! Sounds like this one is going to be emotionally intense, I can't wait! *bites nails*

  11. I had seen the cover a few times online, but hadn't had the chance the read what it was about. Now, I really can't wait to read it. I'm really curious about the "saying you're sorry" too.
    Great pick!
    My WoW

  12. This book does look interesting. I haven't seen it before, so I'm adding it to my wishlist now.

    My WoW:

  14. I have been seeing this one too and am curious as well. I will be watching for your review to see what you think. Btw...did you get my email?

    1. I really hope it's good! Heidi I didn't get anything from you, but I emailed you back :)

  15. This book does sound good! I may be adding it to my own TBR list.
    Thanks for sharing,

  16. I just knew I'd find a vanilla here! Next time I want to read one, I'll ask you and Rachel for recommendations. :)
    This one sounds very interesting, even to me.

  17. It sounds like an interesting book. I've added it on my goodreads under 'maybe reading', because I'm still not sture about it. I think I'm going to look for some reviews before I make up my mind :)

  18. This one looks really good!

    Here’s my Waiting on Wednesday post

    Happy reading!

  19. I dont even remember when i added this as to TBR not long now for the release =) Great pick!

    Here is mine WoW

  20. This sounds good! I definitely also want to know what the book description is referring to with the apology! Nice WoW pick Jasprit. :)

  21. This book sounds really good.

    My WOW:

  22. A few, or several, can't remember, months ago, Kacvinsky TOTALLY blew my mind with Awaken, so, naturally, I AM OVER THE MOON about First Comes Love. Sure, it'll be different reading a contemporary, and I'm not sure how I feel about the I'm Almost There Don't Move kiss cover, BUT IT CAN'T NOT be good. I won't believe it. You are awesome. ;)

  23. Hehe, I know you love contemporary books, J! <3 x) But I've actually hardly heard much about this one too, and that surprises me considering how intensely sweet this book sounds and how much a lot of my friends love Katie's other books! And this line: "What starts as friendship, turns into admiration, respect and caring, until finally these two lone souls find they are truly in love with each other." I think my heart jumped in my throat when I read that -- the romance sounds so beautiful! :')

    AMAZING pick for your WOW this week, J! We really need to know what the sorry is for!! ;) <3

  24. This book sounds wonderful! I haven't heard of it before now but it is definitely going on my TBR pile.

    Thank-you for sharing.

    My WoW,

  25. Sounds like a great book! Can't wait to hear your thoughts Jas!
    Donna xoxo

  26. Jasprit, my fellow vanilla-queen, you know, of course, that I'm looking forward to this one too. That cover is to die for!! That last sentence has me a bit nervous. Hope this is real angsty! Great pick. :)

  27. Aaah the last line of the blurb breaks my heart!! I really want to know how their love story will end. I'll make sure that I have kleenex beside me when I read this book! I can't believe that I haven't heard about this book until you post it here! x)

    Amazing pick this week, Jasprit! ♥

  28. This sounds really good and emotional! It also comes out very soon! :)
