Waiting on Wednesday #127: TONIGHT THE STREETS ARE OURS by Leila Sales (YA)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This is where we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released!!!
The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night!!!
And, quite possibly, to make our shelves look pretty too :) 

What I'm currently waiting for... 

by Leila Sales
Expected release date: September 15th, 2015
Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (Macmillan)
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Format: Hardcover, eBook


From the author of This Song Will Save Your Life comes a funny and relatable book about the hazards of falling for a person you haven't met yet.

Seventeen-year-old Arden Huntley is recklessly loyal. Taking care of her loved ones is what gives Arden purpose in her life and makes her feel like she matters. But she's tired of being loyal to people who don't appreciate her — including her needy best friend and her absent mom. 

Arden finds comfort in a blog she stumbles upon called "Tonight the Streets Are Ours," the musings of a young New York City writer named Peter. When Peter is dumped by the girlfriend he blogs about, Arden decides to take a road trip to see him.

During one crazy night out in NYC filled with parties, dancing, and music — the type of night when anything can happen, and nearly everything does — Arden discovers that Peter isn't exactly who she thought he was.

And maybe she isn't exactly who she thought she was, either.


First... sounds like a fun, quick and quirky contemporary! Just the way I like them :)

Second... the bookcover is AMAZING!!!

And last... I have to admit, I really do love stories that take place in NYC!
I live nearby, but don't get to travel in often - so, I'm always so intrigued with all the stuff that goes on... so close, yet so far away!

SO, what are you waiting for this week???
