What Day Is It? - Teaser Tues & Waiting On Wed

This week I seem incapable of keeping up with what day of the week it is. (Tuesday morning I was sure it was Friday morning!) I blame it on it being summer.

Since I've missed my meme posts this week - for Teaser Tuesdays and Waiting On Wednesdays but still would like to share them with you, I'm posting both of them, together, today . . . even with it being Thursday.

Next week I promise to be (or try much hard to be) more up on what day it is!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.  Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

 • Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
 • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's teaser:

Could he possibly know about the . . . thing I could do? Would he report it?

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My Waiting On Wednesday book is a YA that caught my attention even before I read and reviewed Between Me and You but got bumped much further up my list after BMaY, it's:

Over You by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

After the grand explosion of her relationship, seventeen-year-old Max Scott developed what every girl in the history of the world has been waiting for: a way to get over being dumped. Now Max is the go-to guru for heartbroken high-school girls all over NYC. But when her ex unexpectedly shows up in her neighborhood, Max’s carefully controlled world starts to unravel. With her clients’ hearts hanging in the balance, Max will have to do the seemingly impossible: get over him once and for all.

 Brilliant at bringing humor to the trials and tribulations of the lovestruck, #1 New York Times bestselling authors Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus have crafted a tale that will resonate with any girl who has ever been in love or had her heart broken. It brims with smart observations, features a pitch-perfect teen voice, and will attract fans of Jenny Han, Sarah Mlynowski, and Lauren Barnholdt. Readers are sure to fall head-over-heels for this sharp spin on breaking up, making up, and getting even
I loved their adult read Between Me and You and now it looks like I'll soon have a new YA read from them . . .

The synopsis was making me think of Lauren Barnholdt and Sarah Mlynowski even before they were mentioned - and I LOVE them - so I really don't see any negatives there. I really do love contemporary YA romance that's humorous as well.

As yesterday's review made pretty clear, I greatly enjoy McLaughlin and Kraus' writing - they write together incredibly well and you really can't tell one's writing from the other (at least in the one example I, so far, have). Now, with another book of theirs, also with such an appealing synopsis coming out (and so soon!) . . . well, I can't wait!

Over You will be out August 21st from HarperTeen
