Waiting On Wednesday (36)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she’s pretty sure they’re only good for one thing—spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop.

So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he’s oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he’s one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know his interest won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she's beginning to enjoy his company.

She knows her mom can’t find out—she wouldn’t approve. She’d much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn’t been raised by money. But just when Xander’s attention and loyalty are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. And that Xander’s not the only one she should’ve been worried about.

This is another one of my most anticipated contemporaries of 2013 and it just sounds SO GOOD. I'm a total Pretty in Pink fan, so this hit my wish list as soon as I read the synopsis. Also, isn't the cover just adorable? I like that it's not the typical close-up of a couple full-on gettin' it on, or a girl in a pretty flowy dress. I'd much rather have this cutesy cover of what seems to be a good ol' fashioned date night - so cute! Looove the typography, too. (Yo, Stephanie Perkins' new cover designers, take note!)

The Distance Between Us will be released July 2, 2013.

What books are you waiting on?
