Waiting on Wednesday: Rules of Summer

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

Rules of Summer by Joanna Philbin
Pub. Date: June 4, 2013

Goodreads says, "THE RULES OF SUMMER is about two 17 year-old girls living in the same beachfront mansion in East Hampton for the summer, one “upstairs” (the daughter of a very blue-blooded family) and one “downstairs” (the niece of the family’s housekeeper.) Isabel is the privileged daughter who’s used to having guys fall at her feet. Rory is the no-nonsense girl from a small New Jersey town who’s always been the friend, never the girlfriend.  Besides becoming each other’s unlikely allies, both Rory and Isabel have a summer romance that will change their lives."
I am such a sucker for a good summer romance, especially when it's described as the summer "that will change their lives."  This seems like a fantastic beach read. What do you guys think?


  1. I totally agree! Sumner romances are amazing! I like this book a lot and I can't wait to see what you think of it.

    Happy Reading!

  2. This does sound right up your alley Christina! I think it sounds fabulous as well, I never can resist a good summer romance story. Adding it to my vacation list!

  3. Ooo, this is the first I've heard of this. I sounds kind of like an American Downton Abbey for teens. I definitely want to give this one a try. Thanks for sharing :)

  4. I love books that take place in the summer and I just adore that cover. And this does look like a great beach read. Thanks so much for sharing & for stopping by my post! :)

    My WoW!

  6. This one sounds really sweet and the whole things sounds kinda unique! I like that in a book like this!

    My WoW

  7. I like the way this one is playing the popularity of the idea of upstairs/downstairs. East Hampton is one of the few places that I think it could carry forward to the present day.

  8. Thanks for visiting my WoW, everyone! I appreciate it. :)

  9. I am so excited for summer novels this year! I think I need to put together a list of the ones I want to read. Great pick! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my post! Sorry for the late response.
