Waiting on Wednesday | #55


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. If you click on the cover, it will have a link to its Goodreads page. 

The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde


It is expected to be released on May 22, 2018, by Swoon Reads.

I am so excited for this book. I did not finish Queens of Geek and I am working on fixing that next year, but with what I have read thus far, I am in love. I cannot wait to finish the book and start this one but it is coming out in May so I need to learn the meaning of patience. 

I love the cover! One thing I love about Swoon Reads is that they let us, the readers, to vote on the cover. They did for Queens of Geek and did it again for The Brightsiders. I have to admit, I voted for another cover but I am in love with this one. I love how the hair is so bright, pink and purple with the sunglasses and the purple lips.

A teen rockstar has to navigate family, love, coming out, and life in the spotlight after being labeled the latest celebrity trainwreck in Jen Wilde’s quirky and utterly relatable novel.

As a rock star drummer in the hit band The Brightsiders, Emmy King’s life should be perfect. But there’s nothing the paparazzi love more than watching a celebrity crash and burn. When a night of partying lands Emmy in the hospital and her girlfriend in jail, she’s branded the latest tabloid train wreck.

Luckily, Emmy has her friends and bandmates, including the super-swoonworthy Alfie, to help her pick up the pieces of her life. She knows hooking up with a band member is exactly the kind of trouble she should be avoiding, and yet Emmy and Alfie Just. Keep. Kissing.

Will the inevitable fallout turn her into a clickbait scandal (again)? Or will she find the strength to stand on her own?

Jen Wilde, author of Queens of Geek, which Seventeen called, “the geeky, queer book of our dreams” is back with a brand new cast of highly diverse and relatable characters for her fans to fall in love with.
