WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted on Taking On A World Of Words (previously hosted on A Daily Rhythm) that asks you three very important questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you finish reading recently?
What do you think you’ll read next?
(Totally doing this because I was away this past weekend when I usually write my posts, and woke up this morning and realized I had nothing to go up today, and this was easier than finding a book that’s coming out, for my usual Waiting On post.)
What Are You Currently Reading?
It was always meant to be Olivia. She was the talented one, the one who had been training to be a star her whole life. Her best friend, Dana, was the level-headed one, always on the sidelines, cheering her best friend along.
But everything changes when Dana tags along with Olivia to Orlando for the weekend, where super-producer Guy Monroe is holding auditions for a new singing group, and Dana is discovered too. Dana, who’s never sung more than Olivia’s backup. Dana, who wasn’t even looking for fame. Next thing she knows, she and Olivia are training to be pop stars, and Dana is falling for Alex, the earnest, endlessly talented boy who’s destined to be the next big thing.
It should be a dream come true, but as the days of gruelling practice and constant competition take their toll, things between Olivia and Dana start to shift . . . and there’s only room at the top for one girl. For Olivia, it’s her chance at her dream. For Dana, it’s a chance to escape a future that seems to be closing in on her. And for these lifelong best friends, it’s the adventure of a lifetime—if they can make it through.
I got this book through a giveaway from HCC Frenzy, and it’s been a fun little read. The characters are a bit on the dramatic side for my tastes, but their whole boyband/girlband adventure is fun, and it’s kind of cool to be set in the 90s.
What Did You Finish Reading Recently?
Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.
Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.
There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker, Reid. He’s a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.
This was a fun, sweet, summer-y read and I rather enjoyed it. The romance is cute, and it has a wonderfully diverse cast, and talks a lot about mini eggs. I just need to actually write my review for it now.
What Do You Think You’ll Read Next?
Ramona Blue was the third book I received from the HCC Frenzy giveaway, so I definitely want to get to that soon. But I just got Frost Like Night in the mail yesterday after waiting a month and a half for it, and I really want to know what happens in that series. So we’ll have to see what I’m in the mood for, I guess.
