Wishlist Wednesday: Technically, You Started It

Wishlist Wednesday on The Candid Cover

Welcome to this week’s edition of Wishlist Wednesday! Today I am featuring Technically, You Started It by Lana Wood Johnson. Books that feature texting always intrigue me and this one sounds like a lot of fun.

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.

THIS WEEK’S BOOK: Technically, You Started It

Author: Lana Wood Johnson

Publication Date: June 25, 2019

Summary (from Goodreads):

When a guy named Martin Nathaniel Munroe II texts you, it should be obvious who you're talking to. Except there's two of them (it's a long story), and Haley thinks she's talking to the one she doesn't hate.

A question about a class project rapidly evolves into an all-consuming conversation. Haley finds that Martin is actually willing to listen to her weird facts and unusual obsessions, and Martin feels like Haley is the first person to really see who he is. Haley and Martin might be too awkward to hang out in real life, but over text, they're becoming addicted to each other.

There's just one problem: Haley doesn't know who Martin is. And Martin doesn't know that Haley doesn't know. But they better figure it out fast before their meet-cute becomes an epic meet-disaster . . . 

Amazon “Book Depository


I always enjoy a romantic comedy and this book has such a cute premise. Enemies to lovers trope is one that has the potential for lots of humour. I think that this is going to be such a cute debut for the summer.
