Waiting on Wednesday (119)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.   

This week, I'm waiting on:

Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland
Release date: May 7, 2013


For Cricket Thompson, a summer like this one will change everything. A summer spent on Nantucket with her best friend, Jules Clayton, and the indomitable Clayton family. A summer when she’ll make the almost unattainable Jay Logan hers. A summer to surpass all dreams.

Some of this turns out to be true. Some of it doesn’t. 

When Jules and her family suffer a devastating tragedy that forces the girls apart, Jules becomes a stranger whom Cricket wonders whether she ever really knew. And instead of lying on the beach working on her caramel-colored tan, Cricket is making beds and cleaning bathrooms to support herself in paradise for the summer.

But it’s the things Cricket hadn’t counted on--most of all, falling hard for someone who should be completely off-limits--that turn her dreams into an exhilarating, bittersweet reality.

A beautiful future is within her grasp, and Cricket must find the grace to embrace it. If she does, her life could be the perfect shade of Nantucket blue.

I am definitely in the mood to read summer books after the warm weather we've had for the past few days. I think this sounds really promising.


  1. This looks like a great beach read for lounging on the beach or by the pool.


  2. This looks like such a beach read-can't wait to kick back with it!

  3. Ohhh, this sounds like a great summer read! I just added it to my to-read list. Yay!

  4. Haven't you loved the warm weather? It's been so very summer-like here in PA. I just read Nantucket Blue last month and LOVED it. It's such a great summer/beach read.

  5. That cover screams summer! I am so in the mood for it right now. :) My Waiting on Wednesday, if you have time to pop over. Happy Reading!
