Waiting on Wednesday [#45]

I am so near the end of semester now. I can taste it. Practically just one more week to go now and oh boy is it hard to keep going. I thought I’d’ve whizzed through a bunch of books by now, but to tell you the truth I’ve hardly read any. Don’t worry! That’ll change as soon as studying is out the window. Mark my words.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the SpineIt’s a tremendously fun thing to be because you have an excuse to gallivant through the 2016 releases (and probably buy far too many books). It’s also fantastic fun to head over to the official page and check out the link up to what everyone else is waiting on!


This week I’m waiting on . . .

We Are Still Tornadoes
by Michael Kun & Susan Mullen

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary
Author: Michael Kun & Susan Mullen
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Pages: 304 {hardback}

 Growing up across the street from each other, Scott and Cath have been best friends their entire lives. Cath would help Scott with his English homework, he would make her mix tapes (it’s the 80’s after all), and any fight they had would be forgotten over TV and cookies. But now they’ve graduated high school and Cath is off to college while Scott is at home pursuing his musical dreams.
During their first year apart, Scott and Cath’s letters help them understand heartache, annoying roommates, family drama and the pressure to figure out what to do with the rest of their lives. And through it all, they realize that the only person they want to turn to is each other. But does that mean they should be more than friends? The only thing that’s clear is that change is an inescapable part of growing up. And the friends who help us navigate it share an unshakable bond.

RELEASE DATE: 1st November 2016


I’m not entirely sure what it is about this book that tickles my fancy, but it does. I’m not the biggest contemporary reader but when I saw a book with this title I knew I had to at least check it out. I just have a good hunch that I’m actually going to really enjoy the story.

If I’m also being entirely honest with you, I’m 98% interested in this because of the title. Who wouldn’t want to read a book with tornadoes in the title? I know, crazy! I also really, really like this cover. I feel like the colours would really compliment my copy of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda . . . not that that’s a reason (or THE reason) I’m considering buy this. Nope. Not at all.
