FEATURE: Waiting on Wednesday~ The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes (#26)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Hi Swooners :-)

This week my "can't-wait-to-read" pre-publication selections are:

Expected release date: May 20, 2014
Links: Amazon / Barnes and Noble

Summary from Goodreads:

Soccer star Lainey Mitchell is gearing up to spend an epic summer with her amazing boyfriend, Jason, when he suddenly breaks up with her—no reasons, no warning, and in public no less! Lainey is more than crushed, but with help from her friend Bianca, she resolves to do whatever it takes to get Jason back.

And that’s when the girls stumble across a copy of The Art of War. With just one glance, they’re sure they can use the book to lure Jason back into Lainey’s arms. So Lainey channels her inner warlord, recruiting spies to gather intel and persuading her coworker Micah to pose as her new boyfriend to make Jason jealous. After a few “dates”, it looks like her plan is going to work! But now her relationship with Micah is starting to feel like more than just a game.

What’s a girl to do when what she wants is totally different from what she needs? How do you figure out the person you’re meant to be with, if you’re still figuring out the person you’re meant to be?

Why I'm waiting:

I absolutely love a good love story and seeing Lainey do all these things to win Jason back makes her seem a little cray...but i'm down with that! Plus, I have a feeling i'm going to love Micah...Lol


  1. I think this is going to be a good contemporary YA novel. Enjoy your day.

  2. Ahh, I can't wait for it either! I'm a bit obsessed with contemporary lately, and it sounds like a fun one (plus, been hearing good things about it- so that's always great too.) :)
