Waiting on Wednesday: Hello, Sunshine

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

Hello, Sunshine by Leila Howland
Pub. Date: July 17, 2017



Goodreads says, "Becca Harrington is a reject. After being rebuffed by every college on her list, she needs a fresh start, so she packs up everything and moves to LA, giving herself one year to land an acting gig or kill herself trying.   Unfortunately, not everything turns out as planned, and after a few grueling months, LA is looking like the worst idea ever. As hard as she tries, Becca can’t land an agent, she's running out of cash, and her mom is hounding her to apply to more schools. In an act of desperation, Becca and her friend Marisol start posting short videos online—with the help of their adorable filmmaker neighbor, Raj—and the videos catch the attention of a TV producer. Could this be it? Her big break? Or will she have to move back home with nothing but some bad head shots and a monstrous credit-card bill?  Becca may not get the Hollywood ending she was hoping for, but perhaps she’ll learn there’s more than one way to achieve her dream.  Readers will love every page of this funny, romantic, aspirational, and ultimately triumphant novel about a girl who just wants to make it on her own."

After reading Nantucket Blue, Nantucket Red, and The Forget-Me-Not Summer,  I fell in love with Howland's summertime stories. This is high up on my summer TBR list. What do you guys think?

  1. I think this sounds like fun though I do feel sorry for Becca and hope she figures things out. I might give this a try and I definitely look forward to your review. Nice pick!

  2. I've seen this one before and thought it sounded like something I could enjoy. I haven't read any book by this author, though, I think I own both of Nantuckets.

    Enjoy!
