Can't Wait Wednesday on a Thursday!- Once Upon a Quinceañera

 


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 The purpose of this meme is to post a book, usually unpublished, that we can't read to read.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 

Genre: YA, Contemporary 

Expected Publication: March 2nd, 2021 by Harperteen

Goodreads Summary

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.
 


Why

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. Click here for a post on the event mentionedClick here for the preview

Top Ten Tuesday –Favorite Couples (Valentine’s Day /Love Freebie)

  Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @ thatartsyreadergirl. . This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. I love doing this meme because it gives me a chance to bond with other bloggers. Every week, Jana will post a topic, and we bloggers will make a post with our list on the topic, or a different one. This week it was Valentines / Love, so I wanted to do a post on favorite couples. I may have done a similar post last year, but I know that there are some new couples on this list.  1- Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy- Pride & Prejudice   This is the only classic couple on this list. I enjoy their relationship because the two characters have little in common, and yet by the end of the novel, they make it work. As you read Pride & Prejudice, you get to see these two find the love each of them was missing. 2- Cath and Levi–Fangirl One of my favorite YA novels needed to appear on this list. I love Cath and Levi because they balanc

Top Ten Tuesday-Books I want to reread

Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by  Jana@thatartsyreadergirl . This meme was born out of a love of lists and brings the book blogging community together. Each week Jana posts a topic, and we book bloggers write a response. This week, it's books I want to reread.  1- Pride & Prejudice   This is a classic I’ve read twice, I think? At least once, anyway, I love this novel so much. My favorite character in the book is Lizzie. I also miss the story. Maybe in 2021? Anyway, I miss this book and I want to reread it. 2- Foolish Hearts   I read this book in the summer of 2019. I had been in a bit of a slump at the time, so this pulled me out of it. I read the novel in about two weeks, and I just loved it so much. My favorite character is Claudia, and I want to revisit the book. That this involves theatre is another reason I need to reread this book ASAP. 3- After Anatevka   I know I talk about this book so much on the blog. I read this a few years ago now, and I want to revisit the charact
