Can’t Wait Wednesday: 10 Blind Dates

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by 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.

Ten Blind Dates by Ashley Elston


Sophie wants one thing for Christmas-a little freedom from her overprotective parents. So when they decide to spend Christmas in South Louisiana with her very pregnant older sister, Sophie is looking forward to some much needed private (read: make-out) time with her long-term boyfriend, Griffin. Except it turns out that Griffin wants a little freedom from their relationship. Cue devastation.

Heartbroken, Sophie flees to her grandparents’ house, where the rest of her boisterous extended family is gathered for the holiday. That’s when her nonna devises a (not so) brilliant plan: Over the next ten days, Sophie will be set up on ten different blind dates by different family members. Like her sweet cousin Sara, who sets her up with a hot guy at an exclusive underground party. Or her crazy aunt Patrice, who signs Sophie up for a lead role in a living nativity. With a boy who barely reaches her shoulder. And a screaming baby.

When Griffin turns up unexpectedly and begs for a second chance, Sophie feels more confused than ever. Because maybe, just maybe, she’s started to have feelings for someone else . . . Someone who is definitely not available.

This is going to be the worst Christmas break ever… or is it?


So, I’m not the biggest holiday themed book lover, but I do feel the need for this one. I love a good contemporary that has strong feels, but also also also promises the funnies. The second date with living nativity and screaming baby with boy up to her shoulders? This sounds like major potential for funniessssssssss. This book just seems like one that you’re going to be smiling with, and I totally need that in my life. I’ve also read Elston before – although it was a mystery so this is a bit of a difference – and I v. enjoyed, so I’m ready for this! Plus, I’m vibing that cover muchlyyyyyyyyyy.


✔️ THIS BOOK IS ANNA APPROVED! Anna is all about the feels and swoons, so she is definitely eager for this one. Plus, this book seems to have a strong family connection, and Anna certainly knows a thing or two about that!


What do you think? Is this on your book TBR as well?

  1. I would like to say, that my streak for being rejected by Disney continues with this book. I know I will love it, when I read it. It sounds awesome and this author is a good bet too.
