Hi! I got a little busy yesterday and I had thought about just skipping this week. I then remembered that links are opened for more than a day, and so I decided to just do my post today. Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa@wishfulendings. The purpose of this meme is to post a book, usually unpublished, that we can't read to read. This meme is an offshoot of Waiting on Wednesday, which was hosted by Jill@breakingthespine. This week, I'm featuring Once Upon a Quinceañera by Monica Gomez-Hira. All information comes from Goodreads.
Title: Once Upon a Quinceañera
Author: Monica Gomez-Hira

Jenny Han meets "Jane the Virgin" in this flashy and fun Own Voices romcom from debut author Monica Gomez-Hira.
Carmen Aguilar just wants to make her happily ever after come true. Except apparently “happily ever after” for Carmen involves being stuck in an unpaid summer internship! All she has to do is perform! In a ball gown! During the summer. In Miami.
Fine. Except that Carmen’s company is hired for her spoiled cousin Ariana’s over the top quinceañera.
And of course, her new dance partner at work is none other than Mauro Reyes, Carmen’s most deeply regrettable ex.
If Carmen is going to move into the future she wants, she needs to leave the past behind. And if she can manage dancing in the blistering heat, fending off Mauro’s texts, and stopping Ariana from ruining her own quinceañera Carmen might just get that happily ever after after all.
Do you ever read a summary of a book and just know that you will enjoy it and vibe with it? That was me with this book. I'll be getting a copy on March 10th to pair with an event the author is doing with Epic Reads. Also, I'm going to read the preview, I started it, and I loved it.
