Can’t Wait Wednesday – WITH YOU ALL THE WAY by Cynthia Hand


“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 WITH YOU ALL THE WAY by Cynthia Hand.  I was already sold on this book as soon as I saw it was by Cynthia Hand, but reading that it’s all about family relationships and romantic relationships makes it a must-read for me. The comparison to Forever doesn’t hurt either.


WITH YOU ALL THE WAY by Cynthia Hand

Publication Date:  March 30, 2021 by Harper Teen


From Goodreads:

A Forever for a new generation. Fans of Sarah Dessen , Jenny Han, and Nina LaCour will devour this exploration of family relationships, romantic relationships, and everything in between from New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand.

Ada’s sick of being the invisible good girl in her family. She’s just caught her boyfriend cheating on her after she said she wasn’t ready for sex, and she’s had it up to here with her perfect, beautiful older sister trying to give her advice, especially when that advice includes staying a virgin until she’s truly in love.

But all of that pales in comparison to what Ada discovers when her mom drags them to Hawaii for an annual surgeons’ conference: her mom is having an affair. Just like that, Ada’s whole world comes crashing down, all because it seems like no one can stop themselves from falling into bed with people they shouldn’t.

So Ada decides it’s time for her to do just that, and get sex over with. But what she thinks is one of her best laid plans doesn’t actually leave room for the truth: That feelings, romantic or not, always get in the way.

    Yes… that tricky time in a girl’s life, when everything seems ALL about whether to remain a virgin or not! This sounds like it could be an enjoyable read, Suzanne.

    Is it terrible that I don’t even care what the book is about, because I know Hand will wow me? I am on a roll with her and cannot wait to start this one.

    I have only heard wonderful things about Cynthia Hand’s writing. I feel for Ada just reading the blurb! I hope you enjoy this one when you read it, Suzanne. Have a great week.

    Ohh doesn’t it sound brilliant! I seen this one up on Netgalley the other day but as an option to wish for your request to be granted, which it almost rarely is, I don’t think I’ve ever been approved for a wish title on there. Can’t wait to see what you think of it Suzanne, I’m a huge fan of Cynthia Hand as well!

    Whoa that sounds very intriguing. Ada seems to be in the situation every girl/ woman has to deal with at some point in her life. I need to know how things turn out for her, so this book is on my wishlist now *sigh* Thanks for sharing and happy reading.

    Oh my, this sounds like fun, but also the potential for some emotional coming-of-age stuff. Great pick!
