We wanted to do another bookish meme on Wednesday and after doing Can’t Wait Wednesday a few times we decided that would be a fun one to bring around more often! About twice a month you’ll see this meme on our blog.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
A Forever for a new generation. Fans of Sarah Dessen , Jenny Han, and Nina LaCour will devour this exploration of family relationships, romantic relationships, and everything in between from New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand.
Ada’s sick of being the invisible good girl in her family. She’s just caught her boyfriend cheating on her after she said she wasn’t ready for sex, and she’s had it up to here with her perfect, beautiful older sister trying to give her advice, especially when that advice includes staying a virgin until she’s truly in love.
But all of that pales in comparison to what Ada discovers when her mom drags them to Hawaii for an annual surgeons’ conference: her mom is having an affair. Just like that, Ada’s whole world comes crashing down, all because it seems like no one can stop themselves from falling into bed with people they shouldn’t.
So Ada decides it’s time for her to do just that, and get sex over with. But what she thinks is one of her best laid plans doesn’t actually leave room for the truth: That feelings, romantic or not, always get in the way.
Before reading The How and the Why not too long ago, I had only read Cynthia Hand’s collaboration with two other authors (The Lady Janies). After reading that book I was sold on this author’s work and need more. I was really excited when I read about With You All the Way and waiting until the end of March next year is going to be a long wait.
After reading The How and the Why, I’m definitely expecting a book that can be a bit emotional and tug on your heartstrings. Also, I feel it’s important that sex is talked about in YA. I’m not saying it should be promoted, but sex positive books are important. I have a feeling this is going to be an amazing book. It has an amazing cover, so it’s off to a good start.
Thankfully I have a lot of books to keep me busy until With You All the Way is released! If you’ve read any books by Cynthia Hand, I’d love to hear what you thought. Let me know in the comments!
