"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Waiting On Wednesday (08)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we seriously can’t wait for.
 Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait for:

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

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.

I'm excited!  Are you excited? No?!  WHY NOT???  If you are one of the few unfortunate souls who hasn't read Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins' first novel, then you are missing out on the AWESOME that is she.  See if you had read about Anna, then you would know why I'm so so so excited to read about Lola.  

So now you must go and do the right thing: pick up Anna and the French Kiss, sit down (lie down...whatever), read it, squee about it's awesome, and finally wait impatiently for Lola and the Boy Next Door.  Just. Like. Me.


  1. Ahh I'm an unfortunate soul!! I've heard so many amaaazing things about Anna and I cross-my-heart as soon as I finish my essay I will read it and squee with you! And this cover is so cute!

  2. I HAVEN'T read Anna yet, but it's in my pile. I'm still very excited about this one, though.

  3. I'm *squee*ing (is that a word?) ...this was my pick today too. Don't you just want to jump up and down like a giddy little school girl?!?


Thanks so much for stopping by; I love to hear from you!

Happy reading!!!!
