Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE EXTRAORDINARIES by TJ Klune


“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 be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE EXTRAORDINARIES by TJ Klune. I’ve always heard good things about TJ Klune’s books so he has been on my list of authors to try for a while now. I just mentioned in my goals post earlier this week that reading one of Klune’s books was a priority for me in 2020 so I was thrilled to then find out he’s actually has his YA debut coming out this year. It sounds great too. I was sold as soon as I saw the Fangirl meets Renegades comparison.


Publication Date:  May 5, 2020


From Goodreads:

Some people are extraordinary. Some are just extra. TJ Klune’s YA debut, The Extraordinaries, is a queer coming-of-age story about a fanboy with ADHD and the heroes he loves.

Nick Bell? Not extraordinary. But being the most popular fanfiction writer in the Extraordinaries fandom is a superpower, right?

After a chance encounter with Shadow Star, Nova City’s mightiest hero (and Nick’s biggest crush), Nick sets out to make himself extraordinary. And he’ll do it with or without the reluctant help of Seth Gray, Nick’s best friend (and maybe the love of his life).

Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl meets Marissa Meyer’s Renegades in TJ Klune’s YA debut.

    Oh hello, I am loving this — especially the inclusion of fandom. Also you’re right *that* comparison does get your attention!

    Suzanne! I’m so excited! I get teased for pushing this author so hard, especially over the last few years, but he really is a fantastic writer. I hope you love him as much as I do.
