Waiting on Wednesday #1

#1? Haven't I done 23 of these? Well, not really. I've done Wishlist Wednesday, hosted by Pen to Paper, for a while. I started with that one because I was new to blogging, liked the meme picture, and my sister was doing that one. However, after much thought, I decided to hop over to this very similar meme. Really, it's the same concept, but hosted by a different blog and with a different name.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's WoW is...

What if your boyfriend was the world's biggest rockstar?

Sterling is crazy in love with Ethan. Not only is he the sweetest boy she's ever met, but he's an incredibly talented guitarist, singer, and songwriter. And since forever, he's believed he has what it takes to be a star.

When Ethan becomes an overnight sensation, he's thrown head-first into the glam world of celebrity-and so is Sterling. Before she knows it, she's attending red-carpet premieres, getting free designer clothes, and flying around the country to attend Ethan's monumental sold-out concerts.

It's a dream come true...but whose dream is Sterling living? And what do you do when "forever" comes to an end?

Why I'm wanting: 


I know this subject seems to have been done many times before, but call me a sucker for this plot. Girl falls for a celebrity and then his glamourous life starts interfering...but it's different! She likes him before he becomes famous and his life interferes. I'm sold. I haven't read anything by Colasanti either, but I've heard great things about her. 

What are you waiting for? And have a happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I haven't read any Colasanti either, and cute contemporary isn't usually what I go for, but I'm totally with you on this one. The plot sounds like something I could definitely fall for... though I hope that last paragraph doesn't turn into a teary ending. Cutesy contemporaries need happy endings! I hope you love it either way, though :)

  9. I love books about fame and rockstars! I'm a little nervous that this looks more like the destruction of a relationship, but I'm excited to find out how everyone likes it. I've actually never read anything by this author!
