Waiting On Kissing Ted Callahan (And Other Guys) by Amy Spalding

Waiting on WednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly event brought to you by Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming books we can’t wait to read.

I haven’t participated in WoW for several months, but yesterday’s post topic (Books I’ll Never Read) made me want to highlight a book I do very much want to read!

I recently saw that Amy Spalding’s upcoming book Kissing Ted Callahan (And Other Guys) now has a cover and a synopsis. And a great blurb from Stephanie Perkins: “I laughed so hard I cried.”

Spalding’s books (The Reece Malcolm List, Ink is Thicker Than Water) have heart and humor and I can’t wait to check out her latest offering next spring! And ooh I see there’s going to be an audiobook version too.

Kissing Ted Callahan (And Other Guys) by Amy Spalding

Publication Date: April 14, 2015 from Little, Brown / Poppy

Book Info:  Goodreads * LB Teen * Author page

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist meets Easy A in this hilariously realistic story of sneaking out, making out, and playing in a band.

After catching their bandmates in a compromising position, sixteen-year-old Los Angelenos Riley and Reid become painfully aware of the romance missing from their own lives. And so a pact is formed: they’ll both try to make something happen with their respective crushes and document the experiences in a shared notebook.

While Reid struggles with the moral dilemma of adopting a dog to win over someone’s heart, Riley tries to make progress with Ted Callahan, who she’s been obsessed with forever-His floppy hair! His undeniable intelligence! But suddenly cute guys are popping up everywhere. How did she never notice them before?! With their love lives going from 0 to 60 in the blink of an eye, Riley and Reid realize the results of their pact may be more than they bargained for.

Underneath the covers: This cover is cute, cute, cute! I love the sheet music background; with the music/heart doodles and the lipstick blot to tie into the sharing notes theme. It is fun and playful and the black/white/pink really pop.

This book sounds like it’s really up my alley, and I love books that feature music, romance and my home city!

What book is on your radar this week?
