Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It showcases everyone's most anticipated books. This week, my pick is Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins.

Summary: In this companion novel to Anna and the French Kiss, two teens discover that true love may be closer than they think.

For budding costume designer Lola Nolan, the more outrageous, the outfit—more sparkly, more fun, more wild—the better. But even though Lola’s style is outrageous, she’s a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins move back into the house next door.

When the family returns and Cricket—a gifted inventor and engineer—steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.


Why I Can't Wait: OMG, thank my lucky stars! I absolutely LOVED Anna and the French Kiss, so when I heard there was going to be a companion novel to it, I literally screamed. Anna and the French Kiss is easily one of my favorite 2010 novels, and Stephanie is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Did you read that summary? Wow. I'm curious to know how Anna and the gang will play a role in this book. Please, let there be at least a handful of Etienne in it. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!

Expected publication: September 29th 2011 by Dutton
