Can’t Wait Wednesday – WE ARE INEVITABLE by Gayle Forman
“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 since I first started blogging, 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 WE ARE INEVITABLE by Gayle Forman. I read my first Gayle Forman book, I Have Lost My Way, a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it. The theme of that book, finding yourself and finding your people, is similar to the theme of Forman’s upcoming release, We Are Inevitable, so I’m hoping that means I will love this new one just as much.
WE ARE INEVITABLE by Gayle Forman
Publication Date: June 2, 2021 by Simon & Schuster
A heartbreaking story about finding yourself and your people, from the bestselling author of If I Stay, a major film starring Chloë Grace Moretz. For fans of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, John Green and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.
‘I got this whole-body feeling . . . it was like a message from future me to present me, telling me that in some way we weren’t just bound to happen, that we had, in some sense, already happened. It felt . . . inevitable.’
So far, the inevitable hasn’t worked out so well for Aaron Stein.
While his friends have gone to college and moved on with their lives, Aaron’s been left behind in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, running a failing bookshop with his dad, Ira. What he needs is a lucky break, the good kind of inevitable.
And then he meets Hannah. Incredible Hannah – magical, musical, brave and clever. Could she be the answer? And could they – their relationship, their meeting – possibly be the inevitable Aaron’s been waiting for?

I hope everything works out for Aaron!
Right? I’m eager to see how he makes out.
I can’t believe I’ve never read her books before. I wouldn’t mind starting with this one, it sounds really good😁

I actually still need to read If I Stay. Somehow that one slipped through the cracks on me.
This book really caught my attention.

Thank you! 🙂
I am always excited for a new Forman book. I have already been rejected for this book, but I still hope to read it. I am not even going to hope it’s good, because I know it will be

I don’t even think I tried to request it, just assumed I’d be rejected, haha.
This sounds great! I really need to try this author one of these days. 🙂
I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read by her so far. 🙂
OMG! Thank you Suzanne! I didn’t know Gayle had a new book coming this year but I am adding it to my TBR!

Glad I was able to put it on your radar. 🙂
The last one I read by Forman (I’ve forgotten the name) was a pretty big miss for me so I’ll be interested to start seeing reviews of this one before I decide whether to pick it up.

Oh yikes, sorry to hear that. I’ve had good luck with her books so far so fingers crossed this one is a winner.
This sounds like it’s going to be a great, emotional read, Suzanne! I hope you enjoy it!!
This definitely sounds like a great read (plus, a story featuring a book store is always fun 🙂 ). Added to my TBR, thanks for the tip!
Sounds like the beginning of a cute romance! I hope that Aaron is able to find his happy ending. One of my friends absolutely loved
Gayle Forman’s If I Stay. I’m definitely going to check if they’ve heard of this one yet.
If I Stay is one I still need to read but I’ve heard so many good things about it.
