Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are excited for.
Real talk. I will buy everything and anything that Penny Reid releases without even reading the blurb. So when she annouced on facebook that this book was coming out in March, you know I pre-ordered the book in a heart beat without a second thought. At the time of writing this post, there are zero details on this book, except for the publication/pre-order date and the cover, but it’s giving me How to Loose A Guy in Ten Days feeling and The Love Hypothesis vibes thanks to the #womeninSTEM hashtag and the title in general.
Expected Publication: 15th march 2022

Winnifred Gobaldi and Byron Visser are not best friends.
Yes, they’ve known each other for years, but they’re not even friendly. Winnie considers them more like casual, distant acquaintances who find each other barely tolerable, especially when he’s being condescending (which is all the time).
The truth is, they have nothing in common. She’s a public school science teacher with stars in her eyes, and he’s a pretentious, joyless double PhD turned world-famous bestselling fiction author. She loves sharing her passion for promulgating women in STEM careers and building community via social media, and he eschews all socialization, virtual or otherwise. She’s looking for a side hustle to help pay down a mountain of student debt, and his financial portfolio is the stuff of fiduciary wet dreams. So why are they faking a #bestfriend relationship for millions of online spectators?
When a simple case of tit-for-tat trends between nonfriends leads to a wholly unexpected kind of pretend, nothing is simple. Sometimes, it takes a public audience to reveal the truth of private feelings, and rarely—very rarely—you should believe what you see online.
