Waiting on Wednesday #85

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Jocelyn's Waiting On: 

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
Publication Date: April 11th, 2017


Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie's new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she'll get her first kiss and she'll get her twin back. 

There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid. He's a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there's absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. 


I've been a fan of Becky Albertalli since Simon and his love of Oreos! I loved every single thing about how Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda was written, so of course I'm excited to read another book  by Ms. Albertalli! 

Cassie's Waiting On:
Proof of Lies
Proof of Lies (Anastasia Phoenix #1) by Diana Rodriguez Wallach
Publication Date: March 7, 2017

Some secrets are best kept hidden… 

Anastasia Phoenix has always been the odd girl out, whether moving from city to international city with her scientist parents or being the black belt who speaks four languages.

And most definitely as the orphan whose sister is missing, presumed dead.

She’s the only one who believes Keira is still alive, and when new evidence surfaces, Anastasia sets out to follow the trail—and lands in the middle of a massive conspiracy. Now she isn’t sure who she can trust. At her side is Marcus, the bad boy with a sexy accent who’s as secretive as she is. He may have followed her to Rome to help, but something about him seems too good to be true.

Nothing is as it appears, and when everything she’s ever known is revealed to be a lie, Anastasia has to believe in one impossibility.

She will find her sister.

This one sounds so good! The cover seems kind of spooky, and who doesn't love a good conspiracy? The bad boy with a sexy accent doesn't sound half bad either :P Sometimes these types of books can be a real miss for me, but I hope this one is a winner!

  5. Woah, I'd not heard of Proof of Lies! It sounds awesome and the male protagonist seems to be a good reason to want to read the book. ;) I've not read an Albertalli book, though I've heard all about her debut. :D I hope you both enjoy these books when you get the chance to read them!

    Have a fantastic week. =)
