Waiting on Wednesday: Love, Lucy

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

Love, Lucy by April Lindner
Pub. Date: January 27, 2015


Goodreads says, "While backpacking through Florence, Italy, during the summer before she heads off to college, 17-year-old Lucy Sommersworth finds herself falling in love with the culture, the architecture, the food...and Jesse Palladino, a handsome street musician. After a whirlwind romance, Lucy returns home, determined to move on from her "vacation flirtation." But just because summer is over doesn't mean Lucy and Jesse are over, too. Inspired by E.M. Forster's A Room with a View."
I don't even need to explain why this one is on my TBR list.  An amazing location? Check.  Hot musician guy? Check.  Summertime? Check!  And there will probably be lots of wine, pasta and gelato….I'm in! I love the sound of this book and the cover is absolutely gorgeous. What do you guys think?

  1. Great choice! I've never heard of this author, but it sounds really cute. I've never been to Italy, but it on my list of places I would love to visit. I hope you enjoy it.

  4. All I needed to see with this one was the word "Florence" and I was sold. I LOVE Florence so very much, and was lucky enough to live there for a month when I was in college, so I cannot wait to get my hands on this book Christina! Yes to anything set in Italy:)

  5. My daughter did a study abroad in Italy two years ago and I was hoping that it would generate some summer romance like this one but no such luck.

  6. I love love love the sound of this book. I love YA contemporaries and this sounds too cute. Also, the setting? More than enough to make me want to read it. The hot musician guy also helps! ;)
