Okay, can we all just take a minute and just be amazed that this Book Princess is actually doing a meme – well, more than just ONE meme. That’s right – I had only doing the great and wonderful Calendar Girls for so long, but I’m slowly, finally working my way into other wonderful memes – mostly because all the wonderful book bloggers I know and adore have been coming up with epic memes I can help but join in.
I will be doing these memes (well, as well, as I can because we all know I do have some struggles with staying with something – i.e. a TBR):
- YA and Wine’s #ARCstravaganza every Monday (yes, it is as epic as it sounds)
- Calendar Girls once a month on Mondays (the original meme that got me hooked)
- Young at Heart Books’ If&Then Thursdays (which is one of the coolest ways to get recs)
- Fierce Fangirl Fridays put on by the wonderful Too Much of a Booknerd where, yes, I get free time to fangirl about something. We all know how easy this will be for me. XD
- And maybe this one? While I have always admired it from afar, I think we all know five memes may overdue it for this Book Princess XD But I suppose we shall see, but this is always one of the funnest ways to see upcoming books
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme created by Breaking the Spine where each week we discuss upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week is…
Speak Easy, Speak Love by McKelle George
Six teenagers’ lives intertwine during one thrilling summer full of romantic misunderstandings and dangerous deals in this sparkling retelling of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.
After she gets kicked out of boarding school, seventeen-year-old Beatrice goes to her uncle’s estate on Long Island. But Hey Nonny Nonny is more than just a rundown old mansion. Beatrice’s cousin, Hero, runs a struggling speakeasy out of the basement—one that might not survive the summer. Along with Prince, a poor young man determined to prove his worth; his brother John, a dark and dangerous agent of the local mob; Benedick, a handsome trust-fund kid trying to become a writer; and Maggie, a beautiful and talented singer; Beatrice and Hero throw all their efforts into planning a massive party to save the speakeasy. Despite all their worries, the summer is beautiful, love is in the air, and Beatrice and Benedick are caught up in a romantic battle of wits that their friends might be quietly orchestrating in the background.
Hilariously clever and utterly charming, McKelle George’s debut novel is full of intrigue and 1920s charm. For fans of Jenny Han, Stephanie Perkins, and Anna Godbersen.
Um, where do I even begin with the amazingness that is this summary? Oh gosh, I’m going to try.
- SHAKESPEARE RETELLING WITH ONE OF MY FAVORITE OF HIS PLAYS
- FOR FANS OF STEPHANIE PERKINS
- SHAKESPEARE RETELLING IN 1920s JAZZ AGE
Um, I think I’ve started to repeat myself here, but still. I’m 3000% behind this summary, and the cover? Omigosh, the cover sold me as well. It’s so ridiculously pretty, and I just can’t deal with this. Can September get here sooner???
