Waiting on Wednesday: Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice by Curtis Sittenfeld

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on:  
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld



From Goodreads:
Lizzy Bennett is smart, beautiful, witty, successful—a high-powered magazine editor in New York—but when her father falls ill, she and her sister Jane return to Ohio and the home they thought they’d left behind forever. There, the thirty-somethings find their family in chaos: sisters Kitty and Lydia are wild over the Cincinnati Bengals, the city’s football team; Mary is becoming a rabbi (even though the Bennetts aren’t Jewish); and their creepy cousin Willie Collins, a Silicon Valley wunderkind, is paying the five sisters a little too much attention. And then there are Cincinnati’s newest and most eligible bachelors, handsome doctor and reality TV star Chip Bingley…and his utterly infuriating friend, neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy. 
I have a serious love for P&P retellings in all of their iterations.  So, imagine my delight in finding out that one of my all time favorite authors is penning one!  Eligible is scheduled for release on April 26, 2016, and I can't wait!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??

Megan created this feature and I owe this post to her brilliance.  Not only should you check out her blog, generally, but her This & That recommendations are utterly perfect! Megan created this feature to showcase books that either sound similar or have similar themes, and thus I am recommending that you read the "that book" because you are a a fan of the “this book.”

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
