Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re all excited about! This week I’m waiting for…..
Details & Summary:
Title: The Color Project Author: Sierra Abrams Publisher: Gatetkeeper Press Release Date: July 18th 2017 Pages: 464
Bernice Aurora Wescott has one thing she doesn’t want anyone to know: her name. That is, until Bee meets Levi, the local golden boy who runs a charity organization called The Color Project. Levi is not at all shy about attempting to guess Bee’s real name; his persistence is one of the many reasons why Bee falls for him. But while Levi is everything she never knew she needed, giving up her name would feel like a stamp on forever. And that terrifies her. When unexpected news of an illness in the family drains Bee’s summer of everything bright, she is pushed to the breaking point. Losing herself in The Color Project—a world of weddings, funerals, cancer patients, and hopeful families that the charity funds—is no longer enough. Bee must hold up the weight of her family, but to do that, she needs Levi. She’ll have to give up her name and let him in completely or lose the best thing that’s ever happened to her.
Why am I waiting?
First of all, look at that cover! It’s so beautiful. I know, I know, you’re not supposed to read a book just because the cover is pretty, but I can’t help myself. If I see a beautiful cover, I want to read it.
But, don’t worry, I’m also interested in the storyline. Particularly why Bernice a.k.a. “Bee” (cute nickname by the way!) doesn’t want Levi to know her full name?
I’m thinking there’s a family scandal or something of the sort. But then there’s also the illness in the family, so instead of a family scandal it could be a personal scandal, or maybe she’s keeping a secret. I don’t know. It sounds like Bee has a lot on her plate though.
Oh, and a golden boy who runs a charity organization?? Yes, please!
What book are you waiting for? I’m always looking for recommendations, so feel free to let me know in the comments and / or give me a link to your Waiting on Wednesday.
