Wishlist Wednesday #106

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.

  • Do a post telling your readers about the book and why it's on your wishlist.

Being Sloane Jacobs
by Lauren Morrill

Goodreads synopsis:
Meet Sloane Emily Jacobs: a seriously stressed-out figure-skater from Washington, D.C., who choked during junior nationals and isn’t sure she’s ready for a comeback. What she does know is that she’d give anything to escape the mass of misery that is her life.

Now meet Sloane Devon Jacobs, a spunky ice hockey player from Philly who’s been suspended from her team for too many aggressive hip checks. Her punishment? Hockey camp, now, when she’s playing the worst she’s ever played. If she messes up? Her life will be over.

When the two Sloanes meet by chance in Montreal and decide to trade places for the summer, each girl thinks she’s the lucky one: no strangers to judge or laugh at Sloane Emily, no scouts expecting Sloane Devon to be a hero. But it didn’t occur to Sloane E. that while avoiding sequins and axels she might meet a hockey hottie—and Sloane D. never expected to run into a familiar (and very good-looking) face from home. It’s not long before the Sloanes discover that convincing people you’re someone else might be more difficult than being yourself.

This popped up on my radar about a week ago, and since then I've been really intrigued by it. I love stories where two characters with the same name meet - a particular favourite being Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan - and this one sounds really different. It's not released until January 7th in the US, but all the same, I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

This sounds like a really cute book even if it doesn't sound like it's for me. I like the idea of two characters with the same name meeting though! Lovely cover to it too :)

So many books, so little time said...

Maybe one to keep a wee eye out for. I haven't done a blog hop or meme in ages, maybe time to do another.
