Waiting on Wednesday: Instructions for a Broken Heart

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Instructions for a Broken Heart by Kim Culbertson
Pub. Date: May 1, 2011

Goodreads says, "Three days before her drama club's trip to Italy, Jessa Gardner discovers her boyfriend in the costume barn with another girl. Jessa is left with a care package from her best friend titled "Top Twenty Reasons He's a Slimy Jerk Bastard," instructing her to do one un-Jessa-like thing each day of the trip. At turns hilarious and heartwrenching, Instructions for a Broken Heart paints a magical Italy in which Jessa learns she must figure out life-and romance-for herself."

*This book sounds perfect for me. I love books involving traveling to incredible cities and while traveling the characters learn and grow.  Italy seems like the perfect setting for that. I hope she eats a lot of gelato--that's another way to get over a lousy boyfriend.  Ciao!  :)


  1. Great pick! I love the sound of this one, and the Italian setting sounds perfect. I've always wanted to go to Italy, but I haven't yet. I'd love to plan a trip soon.

    I'll be adding this one to my TBR!

  2. I do enjoy books about discovering romantic settings while finding love.

Cute, fun, etc. Not to mention I took Italian for two years so I always feel cool when I read or see something about Italy and I can say "Oh I knew that!" (Note: I sucked BIG TIME at Italian. Can't speak a word of it!) Thanks for sharing!
