Waiting on Wednesday 1 ... Stealing Parker

Welcome to my first ever Waiting on Wednesday, which is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Not sure if I can link up because, as you may know, I'm on a trip with sketchy internet. We'll see. Today may also be called Waiting on WiFi...

In any case, I am here to tell you that I'm VERY excited about this book:



Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally -- click on the cover to get to Goodreads.

It comes out on October 2 from Sourcebooks.

You may have seen my "Why Didn't I Read This Book Sooner" post in which I wonder why I waited so long to read Catching Jordan!  It's up there with my favorite YA contemporary books.   You can read my gushing about it here.

So I'm really excited to read Stealing Parker, which is about a softball player whose Mom scandalizes the town by running off with a woman. So Parker quits the team and sets out to prove she's nothing like her mom by hitting on every guy in sight.

Can't wait to read this one!!

    2. Ha -- tell me about it. My autocorrect just changed blogging to loving. Could make for an awkward comment.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I own and very much want to read Catching Jordan and I've been keeping my eyes on this author's other books too. I love me some contemporary and this series of companion books looks exactly like something I'd enjoy.

  3. I'm kinda wondering why I haven't read Catching Jordan myself. Stealing Parker sounds great, but then I read a summary for the third book (I forget what it's called ATM) and now I *need* to read all of them. :) Thanks for sharing! Here’s my WoW post! Happy Wednesday! :D

    1. Read it!! If you need more incentive go up a couple posts and read what Kim wrote! I was like you guys: too busy, review books, blah blah. Then once I read it I was kicking myself for waiting so long!

  11. Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday! I think it is my favorite meme because I always find great new books to add to my TBR.

    I haven't read Catching Jordan yet but I am pretty sure this one appeals to me even more! I'm looking forward to reading these. :)
    My W.O.W.

  12. I really think I need to give Catching Jordan a try.... Especially if you liked it so much that the (companion? Sequel?) is your first WoW post. :)

  13. I read and loved both Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker! Miranda is an amazing writer!

  14. I haven't read Catching Jordan either, but will be soon (it's on request at the library). Hopefully this one lives up to your expectations - it sounds like it may. This is on my tbr too. :)

  15. YAY! Congrats on your first WOW post! I featured this one as my WOW awhile ago. It was really good! I loved it although the books are heading towards a bit of a religious side which I'm not really into. Still a great read. Corndog was an amazing love interest as was the smexy Coach lol
    Thanks for stopping by my WOW! I haven't read any other Jennifer E. Smith books besides The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight but now I will have to check more out. I added You Are Here. That one sounds good!

    1. I know a lot of people feel that way about religion in books. For me it depends upon how it's handled. But a love interest named Corndog has me slightly concerned!

  16. I still haven't read Catching Jordan. I know, I know... I must read it! I'll move it up on my tbr.

  17. Yes I am waiting for this book. Unfortunately I haven't read Catching Jordan yet, which is sad because that has my name all over it. But I do plan on reading both.
