Hi all my Bookworms!
My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
How are you all?
Happy Wednesday everyone! I know I said that this morning … but it was worth saying again.
When I started Can’t Wait Wednesday in May I never thought that I would be doing this every week, but each week I find a new book that I must share with you. This week I am also proud to say that I have already read this book.
I was luck enough to get this book on NetGalley and have managed to read it and I have got to say that it was brilliant.
But before I dive in, I should tell you more about Can’t Wait Wednesdays. 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.
The book is:
10 Things I Hate About Pinky by Sandhya Menon
The follow-up to When Dimple Met Rishi and There’s Something about Sweetie follows Pinky and Samir as they pretend to date—with disastrous and hilarious results.
Pinky Kumar wears the social justice warrior badge with pride. From raccoon hospitals to persecuted rock stars, no cause is too esoteric for her to champion. But a teeny-tiny part of her also really enjoys making her conservative, buttoned-up corporate lawyer parents cringe.
Samir Jha might have a few . . . quirks remaining from the time he had to take care of his sick mother, like the endless lists he makes in his planner and the way he schedules every minute of every day, but those are good things. They make life predictable and steady.
Pinky loves lazy summers at her parents’ Cape Cod lake house, but after listening to them harangue her about the poor decisions (aka boyfriends) she’s made, she hatches a plan. Get her sorta-friend-sorta-enemy, Samir—who is a total Harvard-bound Mama’s boy—to pose as her perfect boyfriend for the summer. As they bicker their way through lighthouses and butterfly habitats, sparks fly, and they both realize this will be a summer they’ll never forget.
I didn’t know when I requested the book that this was book 3 in the series, and I think I was pretty lucky that you don’t have to have read the first two books in order to read this book. But I loved the book and it’s made me want to watch the film ’10 Things I Hate About You’ which I will probably do this afternoon after I finish writing this.
