Waiting on Wednesday #49

Hey everyone and welcome back (or to!) my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be participating in Waiting on Wednesday. WoW was hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Every week we showcase an upcoming release we are excited about. Jill hasn't been posting for quite some time, so Tressa @ Wishful Endings has adopted and renamed WoW to Can't Wait Wednesday.

For this week, I chose Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett, out April 3, 2018!

In this romantic dramedy from the author of Alex, Approximately, a teen girl’s way-too-ordinary life is driven off the beaten path when she’s abandoned in the wilderness with her worst adversary—the boy who broke her heart.

Ever since last year’s homecoming dance, best friends-turned-best enemies Zorie and Lennon have made an art of avoiding each other. It doesn’t hurt that their families are the modern day, Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets.

But when a group camping trip goes south, Zorie and Lennon find themselves stranded in the wilderness. Alone. Together.

What could go wrong?

With no one but each other for company, Zorie and Lennon have no choice but to hash out their issues via witty jabs and insults as they try to make their way to safety. But fighting each other while also fighting off the forces of nature makes getting out of the woods in one piece less and less likely.

And as the two travel deeper into Northern California’s rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon’s rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?
 Why I'm Waiting

I hadn't heard about Jenn Bennett until this year, and I'm so glad I did! Alex, Approximately is one of my favorite books. Not of this year, not of YA contemporary, but of everything. I thought it was so well done, and a perfect book for teenagers. It also was very "adult" in the way that people of all ages could read, which isn't always true for some more juvenile books. Because of my love for Alex, Approx., I am so excited to read Starry Eyes. Also, this synopsis just makes me so excited!! A Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets? Heck yes!!

Are you looking forward to Starry Eyes? 
 Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll see you soon with another post!
