Waiting on Wednesday (148)

"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:

Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
Release date: June 9, 2015

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Shopaholic series comes a terrific blend of comedy, romance, and psychological recovery in a contemporary YA novel sure to inspire and entertain.
An anxiety disorder disrupts fourteen-year-old Audrey’s daily life. She has been making slow but steady progress with Dr. Sarah, but when Audrey meets Linus, her brother’s gaming teammate, she is energized. She connects with him. Audrey can talk through her fears with Linus in a way she’s never been able to do with anyone before. As their friendship deepens and her recovery gains momentum, a sweet romantic connection develops, one that helps not just Audrey but also her entire family.

I've been reading Sophie Kinsella's humorous books for adults for years now and I've enjoyed most of them so I am hopeful about her YA debut though it doesn't sound like the other books she has written. Then again, her usual formula wouldn't work as well for a teen protagonist! I also like that Linus sounds a little nerdy and that the book tackles the subject of anxiety disorders for teens.


  1. Oh wow! I had no clue Sophie Kinsella was coming out with a YA book. I read a few of her adult books and enjoyed them, so I will have to add this one to my TBR list. Great pick, Christina!

  2. I saw this one recently too and thought it was worth trying. She hasn't done another YA book, has she?

  3. I got tired of the Shopaholic books, but some of this author's standalone books have been awesome. This one does sound good. Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “THE GUEST COTTAGE”

  4. I wasn't sure about this book when I saw the cover, but when I read the summary I knew I had to read it. I have social anxiety, so I should be able to connect with this book. Hope you enjoy it!

    My WoW:

  5. Looks great! Love the cover and I've always enjoyed how light hearted her books were.

  6. This sounds like a very god story, Christina! I hope you'll get your hands on it soon, and that it will be enjoyable :)
