Waiting on Wednesday: The Secrets of Attraction by Robin Constantine


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. 

The Secrets of Attraction by Robin Constantine
Release Date: April 28, 2015

I enjoyed The Promise of Amazing, which was Robin Constantine's debut novel.  This looks like it will be another cute YA romance.  Besides...how can you go wrong when the description says it is perfect for Stephanie Perkins and Jennifer E. Smith fans.  I haven't read anything yet by Sarah Mlynoski, but it sounds like I need to check out her books as well.

Goodreads Overview: 

Set in the same world as The Promise of Amazing, this smart, surprising, and romantic follow-up to Robin Constantine's debut novel follows two New Jersey teens as they become friends and fall in love. Perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins, Sarah Mlynowski, and Jennifer E. Smith.

Madison Pryce thinks she's got everything figured out—she's working on a portfolio for a summer art program and hanging with her friends. Plus she has her hot boyfriend, Zach. But then a visit from a family friend turns Maddie's life upside down.

Jesse McMann is still reeling from a breakup that shattered his heart and his band. Then pride (and some goading from his bass player and fellow barista) forces him to find a new drummer—and the inspiration to write music again.

Kismet arrives in the unlikely form of Grayson Barrett, who tries out for Jesse's band, and whose girlfriend is BFFs with the cute girl who orders a chai latte after yoga every Thursday: Maddie. What Jesse and Maddie thought they knew about the secrets of attraction and the rules of romance changes once they start falling for each other.

  2. I keep going back and forth on whether I want to read this or not. I also enjoyed The Promise of Amazing but Grayson was my least favorite character so I don't know if I'm going to read this! I love that cover though! Awesome pick this week :) Check out my WoW:
