Waiting on Wednesday - Jenny Han

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. Head over to check it out and play along.

Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
Pub. Date: May 5
Summary: Belly has spent her summers at the beach house with Conrad and Jeremiah, who has never noticed her noticing them. Every summer Belly hoped it would be different. This time, it is. The summer Belly turns pretty is the summer that changes everything - for better and for worse.

Why I want it:
The first thing I noticed about this book was the cover (yeah I am totally one of those people who judges books by their covers) and then I thought the title was really interesting. But the summary really got me, not only does it sound like a great book but I love the characters names. Belly, Conrad and Jeremiah are really great names.
I also discovered in my research that this is the second book by Han and I will certainly be looking in to reading her first book Shug. Has anyone read it?

I believe this is the first time I've heard of this one. Great find!

Shug is AMAZING. You can find my review, er, somewhere on my blog, but Jenny is a great writer. I can't wait to read this one either. Great pick!

Okay, I stopped being lazy and found my review of Shug for you: http://stephsureads.blogspot.com/2009/03/review-shug-by-jenny-han.html. Enjoy!

Oh I LOVED Shug too! I thought I'd reviewed it, but I haven't-gasp! I need to. I've been looking forward to this one for forever! Jenny Han is a great writer.

I totally judge books by their cover too! This one looks really good.

Crystal said...

This book sounds great and I love the cover. I'm adding this to my list and I'm off to look for Shug.

I've been wanting this one too!
I'm always up for a good romance:)

We have Shug in our school library. It seems like it would be really cute.

I have already requested The Summer I Turned Pretty at my library! Can't wait for May to get here!

Belly is a weird name! I think it's weird anyway. Though I think I liked a couple of songs from the band Belly back in the 90s.

This sounds pretty good. I haven't read Shug but I really want to.

The character's name is Belly? That's just weird.

Hope you enjoy it whenever you read it!
