Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine to highlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating
I absolutely knew which book was going to be my WoW this week. I’ve been waiting for the cover to be revealed for weeks, so I could post it! And this week, there it was…excited? Yes!
And then last night I find out Amazon have now removed the cover aaarrggghhh! I have no idea why, but it means I’m not going to post it just in case…well just in case.
But never mind, because here I found two other fabulous sounding books! Both sound great and right up my street. I’m an 80’s child and Looove those Hugh Grant films!
Things I’d Wish I’d Known by Linda Green
Remember when life revolved around what top to wear? Let Linda Green take you on a hilarious, romantic and touching journey back to your teenage years…When Claire Cooper was 15 she’d swear on her Wham! album that: Big hair and rah-rah skirts were here to stay; Spandau Ballet would never split up; She would marry her idol, heart-throb footballer Andy Pailes. Fast forward 20 years and things haven’t gone quite to plan. And when Claire discovers the ‘dream list’ she wrote as a teenager, she realises how far removed her life is from the one she’d imagined. Divorced, stuck in a dead-end job and dating an ambulance-chasing personal injury lawyer, she decides it’s time to put her life back on track. But what really happened between Claire and her teen idol all those years ago? And is meeting him again the way to make her dreams come true? Or a huge mistake?

Scarlett O’Brien is in love …with the movies. Utterly hooked on Hugh Grant, crazy about Richard Curtis, dying with lust for Johnny Depp, Scarlett spends her days with her head in the clouds and her nights with her hand in a huge tub of popcorn. Which is not exactly what her sensible, DIY-obsessed fiance David has in mind for their future. So when Scarlett has the chance to house-sit an impossibly grand mansion in Notting Hill ? the setting of one of her all-time favourite movies ? she jumps at the chance to live out her film fantasies one last time. It’s just a shame that her new neighbour Sean is so irritating ? and so irritatingly handsome, too. As a chaotic comedy of her very own erupts around Scarlett, she begins to realise there’s more to life than seating plans and putting up shelves. What sort of happy ending does she really want? Will it be a case of Runaway Bride or Happily Ever After? The big white wedding looms, and Scarlett is running out of time to decide …
