Welcome to this week’s edition of Wishlist Wednesday! Today I am featuring Virtually Yours by Sarvenaz Tash. The cover and synopsis of this rom-com are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
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: Virtually Yours
Author: Sarvenaz Tash
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: June 4, 2019
Modern love plus online anonymity is a recipe for romantic disaster in this lighthearted new romance from the author of The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love.
How bad can one little virtual lie be?
NYU freshman Mariam Vakilian hasn’t dated anyone in five months, not since her high school sweetheart Caleb broke up with her. So, when she decides to take advantage of an expiring coupon and try out a new virtual reality dating service, it’s sort of a big deal.
It’s an even bigger deal when it chooses as one of her three matches none other than Caleb himself. That has to be a sign, right?
Except that her other match, Jeremy, just happens to be her new best friend IRL.
Mariam’s heart is telling her one thing, but the app is telling her another. So, which should she trust? Is all fair in modern love?
This is another YA contemporary set in college that is releasing in 2019. I think the concept sounds like it has the potential for lots of interesting drama. I am not sure that I have read a book that features online dating . Looking forward to finding out more about this one!
