Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill
Abbi Waxman
Expected publication date: July 9, 2019
The only child of a single mother, Nina has her life just as she wants it: a job in a bookstore, a kick-butt trivia team, a world-class planner and a cat named Phil. If she sometimes suspects there might be more to life than reading, she just shrugs and picks up a new book.

When the father Nina never knew existed suddenly dies, leaving behind innumerable sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews, Nina is horrified. They all live close by! They're all—or mostly all—excited to meet her! She'll have to Speak. To. Strangers. It's a disaster! And as if that wasn't enough, Tom, her trivia nemesis, has turned out to be cute, funny, and deeply interested in getting to know her. Doesn't he realize what a terrible idea that is?

Nina considers her options.

1. Completely change her name and appearance. (Too drastic, plus she likes her hair.)
2. Flee to a deserted island. (Hard pass, see: coffee).
3. Hide in a corner of her apartment and rock back and forth. (Already doing it.)

It's time for Nina to come out of her comfortable shell, but she isn't convinced real life could ever live up to fiction. It's going to take a brand-new family, a persistent suitor, and the combined effects of ice cream and trivia to make her turn her own fresh page. - from Goodreads
I think Nina and I could have a lot in common, and this story sounds cute, fun, and funny!

  4. I've been watching for this book too. And I have great sympathy for Nina - I'd be rocking in the corner of the room too - or mostly. Ha!

  16. Oh my goodness! I already love Nina's voice. She sounds so melodramatic like an Austen character. Of course her loving books entices me to read this one even more when it comes out. I knew your Can't Wait Wednesday was going to increase my tbr list!
