Waiting on Wednesday - Summer Days & Summer Nights

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

 


Maybe it's the long, lazy days, or maybe it's the heat making everyone a little bit crazy. Whatever the reason, summer is the perfect time for love to bloom. Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories, written by twelve bestselling young adult writers and edited by the international bestselling author Stephanie Perkins, will have you dreaming of sunset strolls by the lake. So set out your beach chair and grab your sunglasses. You have twelve reasons this summer to soak up the sun and fall in love.

Featuring stories by Leigh Bardugo, Francesca Lia Block, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Brandy Colbert, Tim Federle, Lev Grossman, Nina LaCour, Stephanie Perkins, Veronica Roth, Jon Skovron, and Jennifer E. Smith.

 
I'm SUPER excited about this romance anthology!!! I read My True Love Gave to Me the Christmas before last and thoroughly enjoyed myself. After all, if it has Stephanie Perkins name on it, you can almost guarantee that it will be adorable and fluffy. The fact that we get to see stories by Bardugo, Clare, Roth, and Smith too are just the toppings on my summer ice cream cone! I'm so ready to break it open and - if we wish hard enough - maybe we'll get to have a fall and spring edition of these little stories, too. It'd be lovely to have all four seasons sitting on the shelf together. =)
 
Are you looking forward to this release, too? What books are you waiting for this Wednesday? Be sure to let me know in the comments and feel free to link me to your own WoWs.

    1. Same here! Can you believe I have, like, two other books from her sitting on my shelf and I haven't read them yet?? *Hangs head in shame* Maybe this book will give me the boost to pick up her others. ^-^

  6. Yay I can't wait for this book either! It's got a lot of fantasy authors, so it's exciting to see what they'll come up with. And Veronica Roth is one of my favourite authors!

    1. Right? It'll be interesting to see how some of the authors tackle RL scenarios. But, I guess /technically/ all the stories don't have to be RL, so we might be in for some surprises!

  10. I really enjoyed My True Love Gave To Me - it was the perfect winter read! I'm sure Summer Days & Summer Nights will be equally as good, perfect for a hot summer's day!
