I'm starting up a new feature here at The Book Life. Release Day Spotlight is going to focus on one new book, on it's release day, that I haven't read yet and am really excited about. It will be a little like Waiting on Wednesday, except there won't have to be any waiting, because once I've gotten you all excited you can run to the store and buy it :0)
For now it will be pretty simple, but I've got some big plans for this little feature, so we'll just have to wait and see what happens!
I am extremely excited for the book I've picked for this first post and I hope you'll all get excited for this one, too :0)
What it's about:
Ella is nearly invisible at the Willing School, and that's just fine by her. Still, it's hard being a nobody and having a crush on the biggest somebody in the school: Alex Bainbridge. Especially when he is her French tutor, and lessons have started becoming, well, certainly more interesting than French ever has been before.
Contemporary, I'm in! And, oh my gosh, I love this cover!
Once I read the synopsis:
I love stories about the invisible girl at school and I love them even more when said invisible girl has a giant crush on Mr. Popular. So once I knew that was part of this story, I knew I had to read it. And he's her tutor, TUTOR! I never got to experience tutoring, from either side, in high school and I always imagined people were in that room living out the stories from contemporary romances. I'm not kidding, I've always thought there was something romantic about tutoring. I am a nerd, I realize this. Then Melissa Jensen had to go and make it even more appealling to me, by throwing in French. I don't think I'm necessarily a francophile, but I do love France and it's language. I'm pretty much up for any story that involves France in some way.
And in closing:
THE FINE ART OF TRUTH OR DARE sounds like the perfect mix of fun and romance. I just know I'm going to be rooting for Ella and I am definitely preparing from some major swoons. I can't wait to dive in and I hope all of you are excited, too! Since this one released today, you won't have to wait to get your hands on it. I'll definitely be talking about it once I'm done, and I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts once they read it :0)
