Summary: Four girls. One magical, and possibly dangerous Italian summer. Family mysteries, ancient castles, long hot nights of dancing under the stars . . . and, of course, plenty of gorgeous Italian boys!



Why I'm Waiting!

I wish I had more of a summary description for this one, but it still sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun! This summer, I am hunting down as many fun, light-hearted YA contemporary books as possible. I've decided that I want this summer's reading and blogging to be full of cute, romantic reads instead of dark paranormals and dystopians (even though I'm sure there will be some of those thrown into the mix as well :) and this one sounds absolutely perfect! What do you guys think??

  6. Ooh, I'm with you on the lighthearted YA binge this summer. Last year I tried to get through the classics and after reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Pride and Prejudice" I discovered that- as much as I love them- they are to be toted to the beach. Looking forward to this one!

  12. I'll be reading this in a month or so AND I CAN'T WAIT. For some reason, it reminds me of Anna and the French Kiss. The cover is very well-done, cute, and love stories set in Italy?? OH YEAH, this book is for me, bro.

  22. I don't typically read a lot of contemporary, but this one really does look sweet and fun; I think it's the travel part than made it extra interesting to me. Plus, it is sometimes nice to read a book where you know the result and just want to enjoy the journey!
