Hi all my Bookworms!
My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
How are you all?
It’s another Wednesday and another Can’t Wait Wednesday. For those of you unaware Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.
For anyone who does Top Ten Tuesday you’ll know that next week the post is 10 most anticipated releases in the second half of 2020 but I wanted to do another CWW mainly because there are many books that won’t make that list because I only have ten books.
One to Watch is one such book that isn’t going on the list.
One To Watch by Kate Stayman-London
Pub date: 7th July 2020
Bea Schumacher is a devastatingly stylish plus-size fashion blogger who has amazing friends, a devoted family, legions of Insta followers–and a massively broken heart. Like the rest of America, Bea indulges in her weekly obsession: the hit reality show Main Squeeze. The fantasy dates! The kiss-off rejections! The surprising amount of guys named Chad! But Bea is sick and tired of the lack of body diversity on the show. Since when is being a size zero a prerequisite for getting engaged on television?
Just when Bea has sworn off dating altogether, she gets an intriguing call: Main Squeeze wants her to be its next star, surrounded by men vying for her affections. Bea agrees, on one condition–under no circumstances will she actually fall in love. She’s in this to supercharge her career, subvert harmful anti-fat beauty standards, inspire women across America, and get a free hot air balloon ride. That’s it.
But when the cameras start rolling, Bea realizes things are more complicated than she anticipated. She’s in a whirlwind of sumptuous couture, Internet culture wars, sexy suitors, and an opportunity (or two, or five) to find messy, real-life love in the midst of a made-for-TV fairy tale. In this joyful, razor-sharp debut, Bea has to decide whether it might just be worth trusting these men–and herself–for a chance to live happily ever after.
This sounds like an amazing debut novel and I really want to read. The way things are going at the moment it looks like I’ll be reading summer/beach reads all the way to Christmas.
