Waiting on Wednesday - Lola and the Boy Next Door

I feel like I haven't done one of these in forever (or more accurately, since September last year!). Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine to "spotlight upcoming releases".

The book I am especially excited for at the moment is:

Lola and the Boy Next Door - Stephanie Perkins
Australian Publisher: Penguin Books
Australian release date: 3rd October 2011

Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn't believe in fashion . . . she believes in costume. The more expressive the outfit—more sparkly, more fun, more wild—the better. But even though Lola's style is outrageous, she's a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood.

When Cricket—a gifted inventor—steps out from his twin sister's shadow and back into Lola's life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.

I love Stephanie Perkins' debut novel Anna and the French Kiss. I loved it so much, that not only did I review it, I also made a Polyvore Profile for Anna and wrote a guide to the film references from the novel! So it's really no surprise that I am very, very excited to read about Lola and Cricket. I have a feeling it will be a really sweet, enjoyable (and no doubt, very funny!) read.

What  books are you eagerly anticipating?

I'm jealous of all the bloggers who already have review copies of this! I really can't wait to read it and from the reviews that I've seen so far, it's just as good as Anna.
