Can’t Wait Wednesday – MISFIT IN LOVE by S. K. Ali


“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 MISFIT IN LOVE by S. K. Ali. I really loved the first book in this series so I’m very excited to get to spend more time with these characters in what sounds like the perfect summer read.

From Goodreads:

In this fun and fresh sequel to Saints and Misfits, Janna hopes her brother’s wedding will be the perfect start to her own summer of love, but attractive new arrivals have her more confused than ever.

Janna Yusuf is so excited for the weekend: her brother Muhammad’s getting married, and she’s reuniting with her mom, whom she’s missed the whole summer.  And Nuah’s arriving for the weekend too.  Sweet, constant Nuah.

The last time she saw him, Janna wasn’t ready to reciprocate his feelings for her. But things are different now. She’s finished high school, ready for college…and ready for Nuah.

It’s time for Janna’s (carefully planned) summer of love to begin—starting right at the wedding.

But it wouldn’t be a wedding if everything went according to plan. Muhammad’s party choices aren’t in line with his fiancée’s taste at all, Janna’s dad is acting strange, and her mom is spending more time with an old friend (and maybe love interest?) than Janna.

And Nuah’s treating her differently.  Just when things couldn’t get more complicated, two newcomers—the dreamy Haytham and brooding Layth—have Janna more confused than ever about what her misfit heart really wants.  Janna’s summer of love is turning out to be super crowded and painfully unpredictable.

    Poor old Janna looks like she’s in a bit of a predicament. It’s always VERY disturbing to discover your parents have attachments and desires that run beyond a dutiful peck on the cheek for their spouse:)). I hope you enjoy this one, it sounds like a packet of fun!

    Misfit in Love sounds like it will be a fun read. Lots of layers! I haven’t read the first book and will have to check it out. I hope you enjoy this one when you read it, Suzanne!

      I’ve read two of her books so far and really loved them, so I definitely recommend her if you’re looking for a good YA contemporary to dive into. 🙂
