Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.
I only recently started hearing about this book on twitter, so it’s a fairly new addition to my highly anticipated releases, but here it is:
Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee
After a shout-out from one of the Internet’s superstar vloggers, Natasha “Tash” Zelenka finds herself and her obscure, amateur web series, Unhappy Families, thrust into the limelight: She’s gone viral.
Her show is a modern adaptation of Anna Karenina—written by Tash’s literary love Count Lev Nikolayevich “Leo” Tolstoy. Tash is a fan of the forty thousand new subscribers, their gushing tweets, and flashy Tumblr GIFs. Not so much the pressure to deliver the best web series ever.
And when Unhappy Families is nominated for a Golden Tuba award, Tash’s cyber-flirtation with Thom Causer, a fellow award nominee, suddenly has the potential to become something IRL—if she can figure out how to tell said crush that she’s romantic asexual.
Tash wants to enjoy her newfound fame, but will she lose her friends in her rise to the top? What would Tolstoy do?
Publisher: Simon & Schuster | Release Date: June 6th | Pre-order at Book Depository
Like, I’ve already started hearing such great things about this. For one, it feautres vloggers, and second, the m/c is a romantic asexual. Who else is looking forward to this book?
