Waiting On Wednesday: Wild Cards & To All The Boys I've Loved Before

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine. It lets us spotlight books that haven't been released, but that we can't wait for. This week we've picked two separate books that we're waiting for.


Jordyn's Pick

I'm  excited for Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles, which will be released on October 1st, 2013

After getting kicked out of boarding school, bad boy Derek Fitzpatrick has no choice but to live with his ditzy stepmother while his military dad is deployed. Things quickly go from bad to worse when he finds out she plans to move them back to her childhood home in Illinois. Derek’s counting the days before he can be on his own, and the last thing he needs is to get involved with someone else’s family drama.

Ashtyn Parker knows one thing for certain--people you care about leave without a backward glance. A football scholarship would finally give her the chance to leave. So she pours everything into winning a state championship, until her boyfriend and star quarterback betrays them all by joining their rival team. Ashtyn needs a new game plan, but it requires trusting Derek—someone she barely knows, someone born to break the rules. Is she willing to put her heart on the line to try and win it all?

This is a book I've been eagerly awaiting ever since I found out about it. I loved Simone Elkeles's Perfect Chemistry series, in fact I convinced most of my friends to read them and love them too (although they chose to love them on their own). I'm not usually big on books revolving around football, but I'm still excitedly looking forward to this release.


Angie's Pick

I'm waiting for To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han, which will be coming out on April 22nd of 2014.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters…

I'm looking forward to reading this one because it looks like I'll be able to connect with the character. (Yeah, I know. That shows how great my luck is.) The premise of the story sounds interesting and I can't wait to see how Lara Jean handles the problems that arise in the story.


  1. Wild Cards was my first ever WoW pick in June! Simone Elkeles's books are some of my favorite contemporaries, and I can't wait to read her next one.

    To All The Boys I've Loved Before sounds like a cute book. I would like to know how Lara Jean is going to handle those letters.

    Great picks. :)

    My WoW:

    1. I've heard so many great things about Let the Sky Fall, but I unfortunately haven't read it yet! The second one looks great so I'll have to read them!

  2. I read Wild Cards a few months ago but unfortunately it fell flat for me. I was expecting something more, I guess. I do hope you enjoy them better than I did! :)

    To All The Boys I've Loved Before is on my TBR as well. It sounds like my kind of book and I love how an Asian girl is the main character.

    Great picks! :)

  3. Oh, great picks! I've been waiting for the first book for long already, and the second I just added to my tbr a while ago! :)
