Waiting On Wednesday (17).

Waiting On Wednesday is from Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
For budding costume designer Lola Nolan, the more outrageous, 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 move back into the house next door.

When the family returns and Cricket - a gifted inventor and engineer - 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.

You're going to think I'm crazy for not having read Anna and the French Kiss, but oh well. Bloggers seem to be RAVING about this one almost as much as Anna, so I'm going read Anna now, and impatiently wait for Lola. (Assuming I'll love it as much as everyone else!)


  1. YES, YOU WILL LOVE ANNA. I've passed it onto a few friends with the comment that they were empty inside if they didn't adore it. :P

    I'm waiting on LOLA this week, too! Happy reading ANNA - I'll look forward to your review!

  2. A great pick!

    My WoW, http://obsessionwithbooks.blogspot.com

    Have a nice week..

  3. You'll have no choice but love Anna. It's fantastic, probably my favorite book of the year so far! But let me warn you in advance, waiting for Lola is a torture. ;-)


  4. Yes, I've heard love for this one from everywhere. Maybe I should pick it up for Contemp month!

  5. You have to read Anna! You have to! I'm sure you're going to love it. All the rave and buzz the book's getting is seriously well deserved. And now Lola! So excited to read this too. Fantastic pick!

    Check out my Waiting on Wednesday picks!

  6. I think anyone who read Anna... will be anxious to read this one. Great pick!

  7. I soooo want to read it to, so I'm just going to wait until its properly released.

  8. I cannot wait to read this one. Anna and the French Kiss is one of my ALL TIME favourites!! :D Great choice!

    Check out my WOW this week!

  9. We are TOTALLY waiting on Lola too! Hope you enjoy Anna! It's simple story, but the characters are completely real, and that's what makes it work SO WELL.

  10. :O. READ ANNA NOW. It's awesome, I hope you enjoy it :P. I'm waiting on this one too, it sounds so amazing! And I've heard some people say it's even better than Anna (though I find it hard to believe). Great pick!

  11. Best. Book. Ever.

    Both of them. Seriously. READ ANNA NOW.

  12. I haven't read Anna yet, either. However, I intend to! I've heard such wonderful things about both of them that I MUST read them both. Great pick!

  13. This is the second time I've seen this book mentioned in a WoW this week and I totally cannot wait for this! :)

  14. If it makes you feel any better, I haven't read ANNA yet either haha I for sure want this one though! Fab pick :)

  15. I haven't read *Anna* yet, but I've heard great things about this -- and that a lot of people are waiting for *Lola*.

    Of course, I hadn't seen the summary for this -- and now that I know she's a costume designer, the purple bob makes much more sense. Thanks for that!

  16. I can't wait for Lola either. I know you are finally reading Anna. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  17. Great pick. Looking forward to this one too!
