Waiting on Wednesday: Lola and the Boy Next Door

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by the awesome Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephenie Perkins
Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion . . . she believes in costume. The more expressive the outfit -- more sparkly, more fun, more wild -- the better. But even though Lola’s style is outrageous, she’s a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood.

When Cricket -- a gifted inventor -- steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.


(summary taken from Goodreads
Release Date: September 29, 2011 

When I picked up the first novel by Stephenie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss (read my review here), I didn't expect to like it that much but it ended up being my favourite contemporary novel of the year! I can't wait to read Lola and the Boy Next Door, especially knowing that Anna and St. Clair make cameo appearances!

And the synopsis sounds adorable! Waiting for a book like this is the only time I'll say that I want September to come faster take that, school! ;)

  1. LOVE your blog layout!

    Also I have been thinking about this book all week! Can't wait for it to come out. I really loved Anna and the French Kiss, and while I know this isn't romance in Paris, Stephanie really knows how to make a girl fall in love!

  15. So, I'm super excited for this book to be released, because I know it's going to be so much fun to read. I'm in the process of re-organizing my beside "tbr" pile at the moment and I'm thinking I'll be adding Anna and the French Kiss to that pile. ;)

    Happy Reading, Guys! ;)
