Can’t Wait Wednesday – Spotlight on WHAT IF IT’S US by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera.   I actually just heard about this book for the first time yesterday and got so excited about it that I bumped the book I had originally planned to spotlight today.  It sounds like it’s going to be a super-cute read.  Plus, it’s set in New York, which is always a bonus for me, and Becky Albertalli is an auto-buy author for me.  I’ve actually not read a book from Adam Silvera but I have They All Die at the End on my Kindle so hopefully I’ll at least get that one read before this comes out since I always hear such wonderful things about his books.


WHAT IF IT’S US by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera

Publication Date:   October 9, 2018


From Goodreads:

Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.

Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.

But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?  Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.  Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.

But what if they can’t quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third?  What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work . . . and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?

What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?  But what if it is…

    I LOVE Adam Silvera’s books so this one is incredibly high on my Fall TBR. Plus I love the cover. I’m curious about the ending, though. Adam’s endings are so heartbreaking, and I’ve heard that Becky’s are very happy, so maybe it will be a mix between the two?

      Right? Every book I’ve read of Becky’s has had a happy ending. Should be interesting to see how they’ve decided to end this one.

    This one sounds like a sweet book and how they just happen to cross paths. I would like to read this just to see how it all transpires. I have never heard of either author but I’m going to add this to my list. Love the cover!

    I am READY for this book. I love both of these authors, and you MUST read Silvera. I still need to read his latest, but his first two are amazing.

      I’m glad to hear that Silvera’s books are so good. I have them all on my TBR and really have no excuse for why I haven’t read them yet.

    I’m always fascinated by authors who co-write; I don’t think I could do it. The book sounds interesting though. Look forward to your review.

      Right? It seems like it would be very challenging. I’m looking forward to seeing what they come up with though. 🙂
