Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.
There are so many books I’m excited about, so I’ll definitely keep doing Waiting on Wednesday. With that said, here’s my pick that I can’t wait for.
Title: Say You’ll Remember Me
Author: Katie McGarry
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication date: January 30, 2018
Summary (via Goodreads): When Drix was convicted of a crime–one he didn’t commit–he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the new Second Chance Program, the governor’s newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.
Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor’s daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn’t may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.
When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle’s parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix’s messy life.
But sometimes love can breach all barriers.
Fighting against a society that can’t imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves–Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence–and each other to finally get what they deserve.
Why I Chose This Book:
I really enjoyed the first two books of the Thunder Road trilogy by this author (haven’t read #3 yet), and so I’m super excited to read Katie’s upcoming book. This one reminds me a little of The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson and Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally with the daughter to a political figure plot point, but this one definitely sounds unique still. As far as the cover, the colors and typography of the title really stand out to me. I can’t wait for this one to be on my shelves!
