Welcome to this week’s edition of Wishlist Wednesday! Today I am featuring Fake it Till You Break It by Jenn P. Nguyen. If that colourful cover doesn’t grab your attention, the super cute synopsis will.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and have yet to read. It is a spin-off of the original meme, Waiting on Wednesday that was formerly hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Mia and Jake have known each other their whole lives. They’ve endured summer vacations, Sunday brunches, even dentist visits together. Their mothers, who are best friends, are convinced that Mia and Jake would be the perfect couple, even though they can’t stand to be in the same room together.
After Mia’s mom turns away yet another cute boy, Mia and Jake decide they’ve have had enough. Together, they hatch a plan to get their moms off their backs. Permanently. All they have to do is pretend to date and then stage the worst breakup of all time—and then they’ll be free.
The only problem is, maybe Jake and Mia don’t hate each other as much as they once thought...
I have read a few books lately that feature meddling mothers who set try to play matchmaker for their kids. It is one concept that I will never get tired of. The friends to lovers trope is always so much fun and I can’t wait to find out how this story ends.
