"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is an incredibly rare adult book for me - I chose this one as I've read the previous book which is a wonderful rom-com which I'd definitely recommend to teen movie fans as well as adults! (I also interviewed Ali about it and she's a wonderful person to talk to.)
Publication date: 22nd November 2012
Scarlett O'Brien, utterly addicted to romantic films, has found her leading man. She's convinced Sean is Mr Right, but the day-to-day reality of a relationship isn't quite like the movies. With Sean constantly away on business, Scarlett and her new best friend Oscar decide to head to New York for the holiday of a lifetime. From one famous landmark to the next, Scarlett and Oscar make many new friends during their adventure - including sailors in town for Fleet Week, a famous film star, and Jamie & Max, a TV reporter and cameraman. Scarlett finds herself strangely drawn to Jamie, they appear to have much in common: a love of films and Jamie's search for a parent he never knew. But Scarlett has to ask herself why she is reacting like this to another man when she's so in love with Sean . . . 'An endearing, romantic and fun read'
Why I can't wait to read it:
It took me a while to warm to Scarlett in the first one but I ended up really enjoying the book and liking her as a central character. The amount of film references crammed into it was wonderful - so I can't wait to see what Ali McNamara does in this book!
