This week’s Waiting on Wednesday is the third novel from the awesome and amazing Aminah Mae Safi. Her last novel, Tell Me How You Really Feel, was amazing and I have a feeling that This Is All Your Fault will be just as amazing.
Title: This Is All Your Fault
Author: Aminah Mae Safi – Her Website
Published By: Feiwel & Friends
Publishing Date: June 9th 2020
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary
Set over the course of one day, this smart and voice-driven YA novel follows three young women determined to save their indie bookstore.
Rinn Olivera is finally going to tell her longtime crush AJ that she’s in love with him.
Daniella Korres writes poetry for her own account, but nobody knows it’s her.
Imogen Azar is just trying to make it through the day.
When Rinn, Daniella, and Imogen clock into work at Wild Nights Bookstore on the first day of summer, they’re expecting the hours to drift by the way they always do. Instead, they have to deal with the news that the bookstore is closing. Before the day is out, there’ll be shaved heads, a diva author, and a very large shipment of Air Jordans to contend with.
And it will take all three of them working together if they have any chance to save Wild Nights Bookstore.
WHY I’M WAITING:
I already totally love Aminah and she’s basically become an insta-buy for me. But then I heard what this book was about and I was 10000% sold. Bookstores are totally magical for me and its a dream of mine to work in one day – and yes, I’ve tried before. I was hired at Barnes and Noble and they put me in the cafe because of my many years of food service. I was heartbroken. But its okay because NOW I can live out fun bookstore adventures through Aminah’s characters and it sounds like its going to be a book of craziness and hijinks. With a bookstore called Wild Nights, how could it not? I also just love female driven stories and the fact that all the main characters are very different females just makes me so happy. I think Aminah rocks female characters and she’s sure to show that in this book as well. I *think* I’m getting an ARC of this so I hopefully won’t have to wait too long but either way, this book is already preordered!
