Follow Friday 7/29


This Week's Question: Let's step away from books for a second and get personal. What T-Shirt slogan best describes you?

Hmm, well this is pretty hard! There are SO MANY awesome t-shirts, so to narrow things down I headed to a favorite online store, Glarkware,and limited myself to their choices. And then it was no contest:

I have always been pretty shy and awkward with strangers, and this made me crack up because I feel like that a little bit all day at work - obviously as a children's librarian I'm chatting with strangers a LOT at desk! I love talking to the kids but the parents are sometimes much harder. I wish I could buy this shirt and wear it to work - at least parents would understand when I'm a bit awkward at small talk! :)

Waiting on Wednesday 7/27

Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?

Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. She's stuck at JFK, late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's in seat 18C. Hadley's in 18A.

Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves. Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it. 

While I complain about the insta-love that is all to often found in paranormal romance, I'm still a sucker for romance. This may be about love at first sight, but it sounds like it is done right, and I LOVE the title and cover. Coming out January 2012!

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

(Anyone miss me? Couldn't stay away!)
