Waiting on Wednesday: Love, Life, and the List by Kasie West

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

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Love, Life, and the List
Publication Date: December 26, 2017
Hardcover, 384 pages, HarperTeen
Genres: YA, Contemporary, Romance

Seventeen-year-old Abby Turner’s summer isn’t going the way she’d planned. She has a not-so-secret but definitely unrequited crush on her best friend, Cooper. She hasn’t been able to manage her mother’s growing issues with anxiety. And now she’s been rejected from an art show because her work “has no heart.” So when she gets another opportunity to show her paintings Abby isn’t going to take any chances.

Which is where the list comes in.

Abby gives herself one month to do ten things, ranging from face a fear (#3) to learn a stranger’s story (#5) to fall in love (#8). She knows that if she can complete the list she’ll become the kind of artist she’s always dreamed of being. But as the deadline approaches, Abby realizes that getting through the list isn’t as straightforward as it seems… and that maybe—just maybe—she can’t change her art if she isn’t first willing to change herself.

This is the first in a set of three standalone books with crossover characters.

My Thoughts

I don’t really even know what this book is about. What I do know is that it’s a Kasie West contemporary, and the one I did read of hers, The Distance Between Us, was super fun and cute. I really want to collect all of West’s contemporary books.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?
