Desperatly Wanting Wednesday, hosted by Parajunkee's ViewDesperately Wanting Wednesday is not only for releases that I’m waiting on, it’s also for already released novels that I just haven’t purchased yet, or gotten to.

Hey Y’all!!!  Patti here again.  While Rach is off having a great time at RT I thought I’d sneak back in and take over her Desperately Wanting Wednesday feature *evil laugh*

For my choices today, I’m picking one YA and one Contemporary Romance:

This trilogy is a few years old.  I loved “The Summer I Turned Pretty” by Jenny Han.  It’s the perfect blend of angst and nostalgia and drama and beach and memories.  I didn’t know, however, that it has a cliffhanger ending and I desperately want to get my hands on the second book in the trilogy, “It’s Not Summer Without You“.

Can summer be truly summer without Cousins Beach?It used to be that Belly counted the days until summer, until she was back at Cousins Beach with Conrad and Jeremiah. But not this year. Not after Susannah got sick again and Conrad stopped caring. Everything that was right and good has fallen apart, leaving Belly wishing summer would never come.But when Jeremiah calls saying Conrad has disappeared, Belly knows what she must do to make things right again. And it can only happen back at the beach house, the three of them together, the way things used to be. If this summer really and truly is the last summer, it should end the way it started–at Cousins Beach.

 

I am a die-hard Rachel Gibson fangirl.  Her contemporary romances are so sweet and sexy, her heroines are endearing and her heroes are sigh-worthy.  I cannot wait to get my hands on her next release, “Rescue Me“, which is coming out May 29.

She’s 33, unmarried, and stuffed into a Bubble Yum pink bridesmaid dress. And the whole town wants to fix her up with anyone with a dental plan… Who’s going to rescue Sadie Hollowell now? Everyone in Lovett, Texas knows Sadie has always been a ‘notional’ kind of gal. She got a notion to leave town asap , and never visit her daddy (bless his heart). Now, she’s back and got the notion to invite a good-looking, hard-muscled, total stranger to her cousin’s wedding. Better a stranger than some of the losers she’s dated. Vince Haven got his muscles the hard way—as a Navy SEAL in Afghanistan. He’s staying in Lovett to visit his crazy aunt—the proprietor of the local Gas N Go. Before he can get the heck back out of the small town, his aunt makes him an offer he can’t refuse. Maybe he’ll stick around Lovett for a while. Maybe he’ll make a ‘go’ of the Gas N Go. Maybe he’ll rescue Sadie out of that pink dress!

One of these selections is part of a trilogy and one is a stand-alone.  Which do you prefer, reading series or stand-alone books?
