Waiting on Wednesday
"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Dead Romantic by C.J. Skuse. Here's the synopsis:
"C.J. Skuse takes chick lit to pieces and stitches it together with a sharp comic touch.
Camille wants to find the perfect boy, with an athlete’s body and a poet’s brain. But when she’s rejected at her new college party, she knows there isn’t a boy alive who’ll ever measure up. Enter Zoe, her brilliant but strange best friend, who takes biology homework to a whole new level. She can create Camille’s dream boy, but can she make him love her?
DEAD ROMANTIC is a new take on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein."
I'm a HUGE fan of C.J's intelligent and witty writing so of course I can't wait to read her next book but I'm massively excited at the thought of "Weird Science" for girls. If you have no idea what I'm referring to, get thee to a Blockbuster or equivalent and rent the movie Weird Science, then come and share your excitement with me. Dead Romantic will be published in February, 2013.
