Can’t Wait Wednesday #6 – The Upside of Unrequited

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released as well. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Find out more here.


Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.

There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker, Reid. He’s a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.

The Upside of Unrequited releases on April 11th, 2017.


Alright, let’s be real, being a Tolkien nerd myself I’d probably fall for Molly’s co-worker. Granted he could deal with the fact that I’m ace. *laughs* I’m super hyped for this one considering all the positive reviews of ARCs I’ve seen. Let’s hope it’s a good one!!
