Books I’m excited to read! (Exclamation points!!!!!)

I scored an ARC of Maria Semple’s WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE at BEA this year. One chapter in & I’m already loving it!

I’m going on a road-trip book tour (9/7-9/12) with my Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers pal, Kristen-Paige Madonia, so FINGERPRINTS OF YOU is cued up on my nightstand.

Just bought my second copy of Lisa Luedeke’s SMASHED (another S&S book!) at her fabulous book launch party at the Peterborough, NH Toadstool Bookshop.  Can’t wait to crack it open.

Last but not least, I am the lucky recipient of an advance copy of TRINKETS by novelist/screenwriter extraordinaire Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith.  Aren’t you jealous?

Nothing better than a cool fall evening & snuggling up with a good book.  If you need one, click here. 😉

“Waiting On” Wednesday – CATCHING JORDAN by Miranda Kenneally

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Catching Jordan

Publication Date:  December 1, 2011

Synopsis (from Goodreads)

What girl doesn’t want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn’t just surrounded by hot guys, though-she leads them as the captain and quarterback of her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys, and that’s just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university. But now there’s a new guy in town who threatens her starting position… suddenly she’s hoping he’ll see her as more than just a teammate.

————————————-

Love the concept of a girl on the football team!  Good thing I won’t have to wait too long for this one.  What’s your “waiting on” pick this week?
