Jane has lived an ordinary life, raised by her aunt Magnolia—an adjunct professor and deep sea photographer. Jane counted on Magnolia to make the world feel expansive and to turn life into an adventure. But Aunt Magnolia was lost a few months ago in Antarctica on one of her expeditions.

Now, with no direction, a year out of high school, and obsessed with making umbrellas that look like her own dreams (but mostly just mourning her aunt), she is easily swept away by Kiran Thrash—a glamorous, capricious acquaintance who shows up and asks Jane to accompany her to a gala at her family's island mansion called Tu Reviens.

Jane remembers her aunt telling her: "If anyone ever invites to you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you'll go." With nothing but a trunkful of umbrella parts to her name, Jane ventures out to the Thrash estate. Then her story takes a turn, or rather, five turns. What Jane doesn't know is that Tu Reviens will offer her choices that can ultimately determine the course of her untethered life. But at Tu Reviens, every choice comes with a reward, or a price.


 

Why I’m waiting: I’ve been seeing this one floating around a bit lately, and it really sounds like something I may enjoy. It’s not my usual genre, but it’s definitely got me quite intrigued!

Becca’s Pick:

WoW: Jane, Unlimited + Prince in DisguisePrince in Disguise
by Stephanie Kate Strohm
Release Date: December 19th 2017
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult
Find It: GoodreadsAmazon

Someday I want to live in a place where I never hear “You’re Dusty’s sister?” ever again.

Life is real enough for Dylan—especially as the ordinary younger sister of Dusty, former Miss Mississippi and the most perfect, popular girl in Tupelo. But when Dusty wins the hand of the handsome Scottish laird-to-be Ronan on the TRC television network’s crown jewel, Prince in Disguise, Dylan has to face a different kind of reality: reality TV.

As the camera crew whisks them off to Scotland to film the lead-up to the wedding, camera-shy Dylan is front and center as Dusty’s maid of honor. The producers are full of surprises—including old family secrets, long-lost relatives, and a hostile future mother-in-law who thinks Dusty and Dylan’s family isn’t good enough for her only son. At least there’s Jamie, an adorably bookish groomsman who might just be the perfect antidote to all Dylan’s stress . . . if she just can keep TRC from turning her into the next reality show sensation.


 

Why I’m waiting: A book involving reality TV and royalty? I’m in!! Prince in disguise sounds hilarious and adorable and like a super fun read! !

 
 

What are you waiting on this week?

    Been hearing a lot of buzz over Jane Unlimited! I remain conflicted, so I guess I’ll be waiting on the reviews! LOL! The other one is totally new to me! Doesn’t really sound like my kind of read. I hope you both will positively love your pick once you read it!

    Prince in Disguise sounds cute! And I’m really looking forward to Jane, Unlimited. I loved Graceling by her so it’ll be great to read something new of hers.
