Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme
 hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine
It's a chance to spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating.



For your e-reader;
Slow Summer Kisses
by Shannon Stacey
Publisher: Carina Press
Publication date: June 4, 2012
Genre: Adult/ Contemporary romance
Purchase: Barnes and Noble/ Amazon 



Anna Frazier is used to living life at 100 mph, but being downsized out of a job in the financial industry has her permanently stalled. With nowhere to go, go, go, Anna hails a cab to her grandparents' neglected New Hampshire camp to plan her next move. It seems like a good idea—until she realizes there's no takeout to be had and the boy next door has grown into a sexy but surly recluse.
Cameron Mayfield knows he can kiss his peace and quiet goodbye when Hurricane Anna blows in. She was loud and bossy as a ten-year-old—and besides developing some attractive curves, she hasn't changed. Cam's not looking for a relationship, especially not with a woman like Anna. He nearly broke down on that road once before. So why can't he stop thinking about her?
It's not long before their sizzling attraction leads to smoking-hot kisses. But as the days get shorter, Anna must decide if she's found a new road to happiness, or just taken a detour. (synopsis from Goodreads)

With the lazy days of summer ahead..I am in the mood for some light and romantic poolside reads. I have read some of Stacey's previous novels and they are always heart-warming with characters you cannot help but love. The setting is in New Hampshire and I have fond memories of vacationing there with the hubbster. 




Every Day
by David Levitan
Publisher: Random House
Publication date: August 28, 2012
Genre:YA paranormal/fantasy
Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl. Every morning, A wakes in a different person’s body, a different person’s life. There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.
It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.
With his new novel, David Levithan has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a captivating story that will fascinate readers as they begin to comprehend the complexities of life and love in A’s world, as A and Rhiannon seek to discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day.(synopsis from Goodreads)

The synopsis of this novel seems so intriguing..I just have to read it!  I want to be a part of A's world and I am anxious to see how Levithan tells this story. Could I love my husband the same if he woke up in a different body each day? Hmm.....one day Brad Pitt, the next Ian Somerhalder and then Jensen Ackles.
He'd be eye-candy..but still my guy on the inside??  Yep..no problems here...LOL I am ornery ..must be the weather. 
What book are you waiting on ?

Okay, Slow Summer Kisses, despite being a contemp, IS added to my TBR on GR! What a great find, thank you!! It does sound perfect for sitting outside reading ;) And having been downsized out of the financial industry myself and worked with those crazy New Yorkers, I'm really intrigued. Ooo, and the setting will remind me of living in Maine...

Have a great rest of the week! -Kristin @myparahangover

I don't usually do the romance route (not genre specific anyway) but this one sounds like a light enough one I might have to give it a try. Book two? DEFINITELY curious about...couldn't imagine going through that situation....thanks for the new wish list additions! ^_^
