“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the
Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that give us those book tingles!
The book I’m waiting on this Wednesday is… The Distance from A to Z by Natalie Blitt!
Synopsis from Goodreads
This full-length novel by debut author Natalie Blitt is a pitch-perfect blend of Stephanie Perkins and Miranda Kenneally that proves the age-old adage: opposites attract.
Seventeen-year old Abby has only one goal for her summer: to make sure she is fluent in French—well, that, and to get as far away from baseball and her Cubs-obsessed family as possible. A summer of culture and language, with no sports in sight.
That turns out to be impossible, though, because her French partner is the exact kind of boy she was hoping to avoid. Eight weeks. 120 hours of class. 80 hours of conversation practice with someone who seems to exclusively wear baseball caps and jerseys.
But Zeke in French is a different person than Zeke in English. And Abby can’t help but fall for him, hard. As Abby begins to suspect that Zeke is hiding something, she has to decide if bridging the gap between the distance between who she is and who he is, is worth the risk.
Why I’m (Anxiously) Waiting
So I’ve only heard a little about this book and this author… but guys, look at that synopsis. So precious! I’m already getting bookish tingles and heart-eyes. It looks like it’ll be the perfect bundle of contemp fluff to leave me feeling warm and fuzzy for days.
I love me some adorable YA – especially of the opposites attract variety. Plus a little bit of steamy French? Sign me up!
I’m also a Kindle girl at heart now, so I love HarperCollins Impulse. Especially as a college girl, eBooks are life. I can’t wait to get this one and devour it between mountains of homework.
