Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It highlights and features the most anticipated books. This week, I picked Instructions To A Broken Heart by Kim Culbertson.
Synopsis: Three days before her drama club’s trip to Italy, Jessa Gardner discovers her boyfriend in the costume barn with another girl. Jessa is left with a care package from her best friend titled “Top Twenty Reasons He’s a Slimy Jerk Bastard,” instructing her to do one un-Jessa-like thing each day of the trip. At turns hilarious and heart- wrenching, Instructions for a Broken Heart paints a magical Italy in which Jessa learns she must figure out life—and romance—for herself.
Why I Can't Wait: This just sounds like a super cute read. And you know me, I love to laugh! Instructions For A Broken Heart reminds me of the movie P.S. I Love You, only (hopefully) no one dies, and instead of Ireland, there's Italy. Plus, I've always wanted to go to Italy (especially Rome). LOL, I'm totally living vicariously through the narrator, and I haven't read the book (nor is it out!).
