WAITING ON WEDNESDAY {4}: THE ONE WITH MY NERDY SIDE

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme created and hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. Each week, bloggers shine the spotlight on upcoming book titles that they are waiting on.


Waiting On...



Synopsis:

John Hughes meets Comic Con in this hilarious, unabashedly romantic, coming-of-age novel about a teenager who is trying to get his best friend to fall in love with him from the author ofThree Day Summer.

Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy...
Archie and Veronica...
Althena and Noth...
...Graham and Roxy?

Graham met his best friend, Roxana, when he moved into her neighborhood eight years ago, and she asked him which Hogwarts house he’d be sorted into. Graham has been in love with her ever since.

But now they’re sixteen, still neighbors, still best friends. And Graham and Roxy share more than ever—moving on from their Harry Potter obsession to a serious love of comic books.

When Graham learns that the creator of their favorite comic, The Chronicles of Althena, is making a rare appearance at this year’s New York Comic Con, he knows he must score tickets. And the event inspires Graham to come up with the perfect plan to tell Roxy how he really feels about her. He’s got three days to woo his best friend at the coolest, kookiest con full of superheroes and supervillains. But no one at a comic book convention is who they appear to be...even Roxy. And Graham is starting to realize fictional love stories are way less complicated than real-life ones.

The Why:

I mean the synposis had me at John Hughes; I mean why wouldn't I want to add that quickly to my TBR. Also, I've recently gotten into comics and I'm so excited to see a slight twist on this storyline. 


Plus how can I resist a novel about a guy who falls for his best friend; that is one of my favorite  tropes.

Are you a comic book reader? HAve you ever been to Comic Con? Which book are you waiting on?

XO, K
