Waiting on Wednesday: Alex, Approximately

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

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett
Pub. Date: April 4, 2017

Goodreads says, "In this delightfully charming teen spin on You’ve Got Mail, the one guy Bailey Rydell can’t stand is actually the boy of her dreams—she just doesn’t know it yet. Classic movie buff Bailey “Mink” Rydell has spent half of her junior year falling for a sensitive film geek she only knows online as “Alex.” Two coasts separate them until she moves in with her dad, who lives in the same California surfing town as her online crush. Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist trap, the oddball Cavern Palace Museum. Or that she’s being tormented daily by Porter Roth, a smart-alecky yet irritatingly hot museum security guard. But when Porter and Bailey are locked in the museum overnight, Bailey is forced to choose whether she should cling to a dreamy fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex. Approximately."

A spin on You've Got Mail? Ahh! I LOVE that movie and I love this concept. This sounds like a must-read for me. What do you guys think?


  1. I love You've Got Mail! I will be adding this to my TBR list. It sounds like a lot of fun. Good pick, Christina.

  2. Oh, I need this one, too! I love Jenn Bennett's Night Owls. Great pick!

  3. I agree! And the cover is cute! Added this to my GR.

  4. Sounds interesting. I liked You've Got Mail so the fact that this is a YA spin on that movie is intriguing and I'd love to see how this one plays out. Nice pick. Hope we all enjoy it when we get to read it :)

    Happy Wednesday!
