Waiting on Wednesday: Love and Other Theories by Alexis Bass

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I just like how quirky this cover is and the synopsis sounds cute and fun. I'm hoping it will be another great contemporary romance from this year. Here's my WOW pick this week:

Summary

If you want more, you have to give less.

That’s the secret to dating in high school. By giving as little as they expect to get in return, seventeen-year-old Aubrey Housing and her three best friends have made it to the second semester of their senior year heartbreak-free. And it’s all thanks to a few simple rules: don’t commit, don’t be needy, and don’t give away your heart.

So when smoking-hot Nathan Diggs transfers to Lincoln High, it shouldn’t be a big deal. At least that’s what Aubrey tells herself. But Nathan’s new-boy charm, his kindness, and his disarming honesty throw Aubrey off her game and put her in danger of breaking the most important rule of all: Don’t fall in love.

  9. I love all the Christmas movies ... even the sickly sweet ones lol!!!


    But I do have to admit to a preference for Scrooge in any way shape or form - from the serious old ones that make you cry to the silly, funny ones that make you cry laughing :D

  19. It's such a bummer when a book you're looking forward too turns out to not be that great. I haven't checked out reviews for this one yet, so I guess I'll have to see.
