Waiting on Wednesday: Starry Eyes by Jenn BennettStarry Eyes by Jenn Bennett

In this romantic dramedy from the author of Alex, Approximately, a teen girl’s way-too-ordinary life is driven off the beaten path when she’s abandoned in the wilderness with her worst adversary—the boy who broke her heart.

Ever since last year’s homecoming dance, best friends-turned-best enemies Zorie and Lennon have made an art of avoiding each other. It doesn’t hurt that their families are the modern day, Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets.

But when a group camping trip goes south, Zorie and Lennon find themselves stranded in the wilderness. Alone. Together.

What could go wrong?

With no one but each other for company, Zorie and Lennon have no choice but to hash out their issues via witty jabs and insults as they try to make their way to safety. But fighting each other while also fighting off the forces of nature makes getting out of the woods in one piece less and less likely.

And as the two travel deeper into Northern California’s rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon’s rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?

Um, new Jenn Bennett book with a hate-to-love romance? Yes please! I adored Alex, Approximately, and I’m hoping to read Bennett’s first book, The Anatomical Shape of a Heart, this month. She’s quickly become one of my favorite YA contemporary authors and earned a spot on my auto-buy list. Plus, how gorgeous is this cover?! *wills April 2018 to come faster*

What book are you waiting on this week? Are you as excited for this one as I am?

  1. YES! I will read anything by Jenn Bennett! You should give her adult series a try if you’re into UF. It was so good! And has one of the shippiest OTPs!
    But omg you haven’t read Anatomical yet! Get on it!!! 🙂

    • Omg, I had no idea she had an adult UF series! One of my favorite genres + one of my new favorite authors? YES, PLEASE. Also, you are clearly a mind reader because I finished Anatomical yesterday and IT WAS SO GOOD.

  2. I LOVE hate-to-love romances! This one sounds really cute, and while I haven’t read her other book, I’m definitely excited for it. Great pick!! 😀

  3. I haven’t read anything by Jenn Bennett but I have seen lots of good things about Alex, Approximately! This latest of hers sounds like it has a very cute premise 🙂

  4. I love hate-to-love romances! My favorite romance trope. I’ve not read anything by this author, although I thought the cover looked familiar for some reason. 😮 I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!
