Waiting on Wednesday
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It features each blogger's most anticipated books. This week, my pick is Unbreak My Heart by Melissa C. Walker.
Summary: "Sophomore year broke Clementine Williams’ heart. She fell for her best friend’s boyfriend and long story short: he’s excused, but Clem is vilified and she heads into summer with zero social life.
Enter her parents’ plan to spend the summer on their sailboat. Normally the idea of being stuck on a tiny boat with her parents and little sister would make Clem break out in hives, but floating away sounds pretty good right now.
Then she meets James at one of their first stops along the river. He and his dad are sailing for the summer and he’s just the distraction Clem needs. Can he break down Clem’s walls and heal her broken heart?
Told in alternating chapters that chronicle the year that broke Clem’s heart and the summer that healed it, Unbreak My Heart is a wonderful dual love story that fans of Sarah Dessen, Deb Caletti, and Susane Colasanti will flock to."
Why I Can't Wait: Is anyone else loving the cover as much as I am? It's so cute, and I love how the heart wraps around the entire picture. EEP! Okay, so I'm slowly becoming a huge Melissa C. Walker fan. Lovestruck Summer was a cute, fast read, and Small Town Sinners was intense! Plus, I got to meet her in Austin, and she is AMAZING! Melissa? I love you. :-P
Anywho, you guys know I'm a total sap when it comes to love stories, and all my favorite ones are told in alternating points of view. Plus, I love novels where they take you back to the past, then to the present and so on. And hello? This book is perfect for Sarah Dessen, Deb Caletti, and Susane Colasanti fans? Win!
