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

My choice for this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg

Hardcover, 288 pages
Expected publication: March 2013 by Point

Synopsis From Goodreads:

A hilarious new novel from Elizabeth Eulberg about taking the wall out of the wallflower so she can bloom.

Don't mess with a girl with a Great Personality.

Everybody loves Lexi. She's popular, smart, funny...but she's never been one of those girls, the pretty ones who get all the attention from guys. And on top of that, her seven-year-old sister, Mackenzie, is a terror in a tiara, and part of a pageant scene where she gets praised for her beauty (with the help of fake hair and tons of makeup).

Lexi's sick of it. She's sick of being the girl who hears about kisses instead of getting them. She's sick of being ignored by her longtime crush, Logan. She's sick of being taken for granted by her pageant-obsessed mom. And she's sick of having all her family's money wasted on a phony pursuit of perfection.

The time has come for Lexi to step out from the sidelines. Girls without great personalities aren't going to know what hit them. Because Lexi's going to play the beauty game - and she's in it to win it.

Why I Want To Read It:
Doesn't this sound really cute? It seems like it will be a light and fun read. I also enjoyed reading Eulberg's Take A Bow, and I think I will like this one too. What are you waiting on this week?

  2. I haven't heard of this one either, but I'm adding it to my list because in a way it kind of reminds me of the movie Mean Girls. I think the main character in this book will get out of control and not remember who she really is. Can't wait to find out. My WOW

  6. This sounds so fun! I love books where girls take charge and go after what they want. And I can't blame her for being annoyed that her sister is getting all the attention over some pageants. Great picks! New to me so thanks for sharing and for stopping by!

  10. This sounds fun and I must admit that I've watched more than a few episodes of Toddlers and Tiaras. I think I read a Pride and Prejudice retelling by Elizabeth Eulberg .
