Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Tell Me How You Really Feel by Amina Mae Safi

Hi friends! Welcome back to another installment of Can’t-Wait Wednesday! Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read (generally, books that aren’t yet released). It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Today, I’m going to be talking about Tell Me How You Really Feel by Amina Mae Safi. Tell Me How You Really Feel by Amina Mae Safi Sana Khan is a cheerleader and a straight A student. She's the classic (somewhat obnoxious) overachiever determined to win. Rachel Recht is a wannabe director who's obsesssed with movies and ready to make her own masterpiece. As she's casting her senior film project, she knows she's found the perfect lead - Sana. There's only one problem. Rachel hates Sana. Rachel was the first girl Sana ever asked out, but Rachel thought it was a cruel prank and has detested Sana ever since. Told in alternative viewpoints and inspired by classic romantic comedies, this engaging and edgy YA novel follows two strongwilled young women falling for each other despite themselves. Do you see this? Just look at that cover! This book shows a sapphic couple on the cover... IN YA!! I'm so happy about this! This is the energy that we need in 2019! Also, the diversity! This book features a Jewish and Middle-Eastern by way of Mexico main character and a Muslim, half-Persian, half-Bengali main character. While I was looking through the early reviews of this, I saw someone say that it is an enemies to lovers tale and OMG that is my favorite trope. I know that this will be the rom-com that I need in my life for summer 2019! What do you think of my pick for Can't Wait Wednesday? Have you heard of this book? Will you be picking it up?

Hi friends! Welcome to Can't-Wait Wednesday! Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read (generally, books that aren't yet released). It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Today, I'm going to be talking about Birthday by Meredith Russo. Boyhood meets The Sun Is Also a Star in this unconventional love story about two teens bonded for life when they are born on the same day at the same time by award-winning author Meredith Russo! Two kids, Morgan and Eric, are bonded for life after being born on the same day at the same time. We meet them once a year on their shared birthday as they grow and change: as Eric figures out who he is and how he fits into the world, and as Morgan makes the difficult choice to live as her true self. Over the years, they will drift apart, come together, fight, make up, and break up—and ultimately, realize how inextricably they are a part of each other. I'm sooo excited to get my hands on this book! I just know it is a gem. It sounds so emotional and I know that it will give me all the feels. Also, this is about a trans teen and it is written by an #ownvoices author. I have a feeling that I'm going to love this and it will be an exceptional read. What book or books are on your TBR that are coming out soon that you can't wait to read? Any that you recommend?
