Waiting on Wednesday (54)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine so that (this is me paraphrasing) we can all FREAK OUT TOGETHER about some rocking upcoming books. Warning: extreme fangirling may occur.

Add to: Goodreads
Publisher: St. Martin's Press

Release Date: February 26, 2013

"Bono met his wife in high school," Park says.
"So did Jerry Lee Lewis," Eleanor answers.
"I’m not kidding," he says.
"You should be," she says, "we’re sixteen."
"What about Romeo and Juliet?"
"Shallow, confused, then dead."
''I love you," Park says.
"Wherefore art thou," Eleanor answers.
"I’m not kidding," he says.
"You should be."
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, ELEANOR AND PARK is the story of two star-crossed misfits – smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love – and just how hard it pulled you under.
For some reason, this book just struck me with WANT as soon as I saw it. (This may or may not have been influenced by that cover that I adore to pieces.) I love the simplicity of a novel just about love and trying to make it work in high school. Sounds like a good time! Plus, Gayle Forman blurbed it. I must read it.


  1. This book really intrigues me- I read a wonderful review of it last week and apparently you'll either really connect with it, or maybe not so much, though I think if you love the sound of the blurb then you're going to love the book. I hope you do!

    And yes, this book possibly is going to have the best range of covers of all books during 2013. They are all so beautiful

    1. Fingers crossed! I really want to love it so hopefully it works out that way, haha.

      It's just so simple and perfect, ahhh!

  2. Gayle Forman blurbed this? I didn't know that! I somehow missed the writing on the cover. :P It's had some great reviews recently though and I already like the sound of it. Great pick, Sonia!

    1. I have those moments aaaaall the time, Sam, no worries ;)

  3. This is a new book for me and it looks really good! I hope you love it once you get your hands on a copy.
