Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinsky
Release Date: May 8th 2012
Published by: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Want? Add to your Goodreads shelf!
Summary (from Goodreads):

Like his name, Gray is dark and stormy. Dylan, a girl always searching for what's next, seemingly unable to settle down, is the exact opposite: full of light and life. On the outside, they seem like an unlikely couple. But looks can be deceiving and besides, opposites attract.

What starts as friendship, turns into admiration, respect and caring, until finally these two lone souls find they are truly in love with each other.

But staying in love is not as easy as falling in love. If Dylan and Gray want their love to last, they're going to have to work at it. And learn that sometimes love means having to say you're sorry.

Why I'm waiting for First Comes Love:

I think the name Gray sounds fantastic. Unique. And this sounds like an intense book filled with a lesson or two about love. I like Katie's first book, Awaken, is a good novel and I am willing to give this one a try. Contemporary books are my cup of tea these days and this one sounds like one that I will immensely enjoy.

Title: Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald
Release Date: January 24th 2012
Published by: Candlewick Press
Want? Add to your Goodreads shelf!
Summary (from Goodreads):

Seventeen-year-old Sadie is in love: epic, heartfelt, and utterly one-sided. The object of her obsession — ahem, affection — is her best friend,Garrett Delaney, who has been oblivious to Sadie’s feelings ever since he sauntered into her life and wowed her with his passion for Proust (not to mention his deep blue eyes).

For two long, painful years, Sadie has been Garrett’s constant companion, sharing his taste in everything from tragic Russian literature to art films to ’80s indie rock — all to no avail. But when Garrett leaves for a summer literary retreat, Sadie is sure that the absence will make his heart grow fonder — until he calls to say he’s fallen in love. With some other girl! A heartbroken Sadie realizes that she’s finally had enough. It’s time for a total Garrett detox!

Aided by a barista job, an eclectic crew of new friends (including the hunky chef, Josh), and a customized self-help guide, Sadie embarks on a summer of personal reinvention full of laughter, mortifying meltdowns, and a double shot of love.

Why I'm waiting for Getting Over Garrett Delaney:

So how do you get over someone? I know it's never easy, and this one sounds a bit fun and maybe a bit hilarious! This sounds like a novel I'd read. I can relate to it really well, and I can tell that this one is going to be an enjoyable read.
