The middle of the week has arrived, which means it’s time for Can’t-Wait Wednesday. Every week I spotlight amazing future releases that—well, that I just can’t wait for. This is a feature hosted by Tressa over at Wishful Endings, so be sure to check out her weekly post to find other participants. Fair warning: don’t be surprised if you come away with an expanded TBR pile.
Today I’m waiting for…
LGBTQIA+ representation. Thrift shops. A diary with a dose of cynicism. Unexpected love.
It’s almost like author Wibke Brueggeman has written exactly what I needed to read in 2020.
I can’t wait.
From the publisher:
In this wry and hilarious queer romantic comedy, fifteen-year-old Phoebe realizes that falling in love is maybe not just for losers.
Did you know you can marry yourself? How strange / brilliant is that?
Fifteen-year-old Phoebe thinks falling in love is vile and degrading, and vows never to do it. Then, due to circumstances not entirely in her control, she finds herself volunteering at a local thrift shop. There she meets Emma … who might unwittingly upend her whole theory on life.
