Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Wednesday is my absolute favorite day of the week because I get to share the books that I am super excited about and can't wait to read.

Expected publication: June 9th 2015 by St. Martin's Griffin

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A teen escapes to a boarding school abroad and falls for a Korean pop star in this fun and fresh romantic novel in the vein of Anna and the French Kiss.

Grace Wilde is running—from the multi-million dollar mansion her record producer father bought, the famous older brother who’s topped the country music charts five years in a row, and the mother who blames her for her brother’s breakdown. Grace escapes to the farthest place from home she can think of, a boarding school in Korea, hoping for a fresh start.

She wants nothing to do with music, but when her roommate Sophie’s twin brother Jason turns out to be the newest Korean pop music superstar, Grace is thrust back into the world of fame. She can't stand Jason, whose celebrity status is only outmatched by his oversized ego, but they form a tenuous alliance for the sake of her friendship with Sophie. As the months go by and Grace adjusts to her new life in Korea, even she can't deny the sparks flying between her and the KPOP idol.

Soon, Grace realizes that her feelings for Jason threaten her promise to herself that she'll leave behind the music industry that destroyed her family. But can Grace ignore her attraction to Jason and her undeniable pull of the music she was born to write? Sweet, fun, and romantic, this young adult novel explores what it means to experience first love and discover who you really are in the process.

I was really looking forward to reading this because it sounds cute, but I am quite anxious about those low star ratings on Goodreads. It makes me wonder if this book is for me. I think I'll still read it and let you know how it turns out.

What are you waiting on this week?

  8. I saw this book on Netgalley but was unsure if I should request it. I don't offered read romance for I relate to much to most of them and find myself blushing from time to time while reading them. So embarrassing when out in public. But thanks for sharing and thanks for checking out my WOW earlier.

    1. Thank you for stopping by Carolyn. I know what you mean about reading certain books in public. At least with ereaders we no longer have to be embarrassed about the covers too!

  10. I wasn't going to read this even before I saw those reviews. Lately I've been trying to avoidwhat I call young YA and this seemed to be in that category. But glad you are keeping an open mind and look forward to seeing what you think!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Jen. I agree that this does sound like more of a young YA book. I can usually handle them as long as they are good... but I'm worried about this one.
