WAITING ON WEDNESDAY #61: The Fine Art of Pretending (The Fine Art of Pretending #1) by Rachel Harris

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

According to the guys at Fairfield Academy, there are two types of girls: the kind you hook up with, and the kind you're friends with. Seventeen-year-old Alyssa Reed is the second type. And she hates it. With just one year left to change her rank, she devises a plan to become the first type by homecoming, and she sets her sights on the perfect date—Justin Carter, Fairfield Academy’s biggest hottie and most notorious player.

With 57 days until the dance, Aly launches Operation Sex Appeal and sheds her tomboy image. The only thing left is for Justin actually to notice her. Enter best friend Brandon Taylor, the school’s second biggest hottie, and now Aly’s pretend boyfriend. With his help, elevating from “funny friend” to “tempting vixen” is only a matter of time.

But when everything goes according to plan, the inevitable “break up” leaves their friendship in shambles, and Aly and Brandon with feelings they can’t explain. And the fake couple discovers pretending can sometimes cost you the one thing you never expected to want.

Expected publication: September 2014

I don't get to read as much Young Adult contemporary as I would like, and it's my absolute favourite!! I love friends to lovers type of stories, and this one's written in dual POV's. The Fine Art of Pretending is ticking all the boxes for me.
What book are you patiently waiting for the release of?


  1. Oh my gosh, I JUST saw this on another WoW post! I LOVE the sound of it though! I don't think I read enough contemporary YA either, and this one just sounds so cute. Great pick!
