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 fanfic writer brings her favorite TV character to life in this friends-to-enemies-to-lovers novel full of humor and heart.
Ivy Winslow has the house to herself for a week while her parents are away. She’s planning to use this newfound freedom to binge-watch her favorite fantasy TV show, H-MAD, and hang out with her best friend, Henry. She’ll also have to avoid her former best friend-turned enemy (and neighbor), Mack. But things quickly go awry when Ivy wakes up to find Weston, the gorgeous, very fictional main character of H-MAD in her bedroom, claiming to be her soul mate.
Ivy realizes that her fanfic writing has somehow brought Weston as she’s imagined him to life. But it turns out that the tropes she swoons over in her stories are slightly less romantic in reality, and her not-so-fictional crush is causing some real-world problems. To figure out why Weston is here and what to do with him, Ivy decides to team up with Henry and (against her better judgment) Mack. But with Mack back in her life, Ivy starts to wonder if Weston, her “perfect guy”, is the one who’s truly perfect for her . . . or if that was someone else all along.
I love Sophie Gonzales’ writing and have enjoyed every book I’ve read by her so far. They were all 5 star reads and I’m pretty sure they all made it to my favorites lists of those years. So her newest release is ofcourse on my radar. Even without knowing what it’s about I would already add it. I’m just convinced I will enjoy whatever Sophie Gonzales writes about.
Luckily for me, I also really like the sound of the synopsis. A fictional crush from a fan fiction coming to life, hilarious! And then to have the main character team up with her ex-best friend turned enemy (and about to turn lover?), 10 out of 10. I have really high hopes for this one haha.
Was this one on your radar? Have you read anything by Sophie Gonzales? What has been your favorite so far? I would love to hear from you!
