Can’t Wait Wednesday – HERE’S TO 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 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 HERE’S TO US by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera. I really loved the chemistry between Ben and Arthur in the first book in this series but was a little dissatisfied as to how that book ended. So I’m thrilled to find out that we’re finally going to get a sequel that will hopefully give me the ending I wanted the first time around.
HERE’S TO US by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera
Publication Date: December 28, 2021 by Quill Tree Brooks
Ben has spent his first year of college working on his fantasy manuscript with his writing partner Mario, who is a great Spanish tutor, and an even better kisser. So why can’t he stop thinking about the fact that Arthur’s back in town two years after they called it quits?
Arthur is in New York for a dream internship on Broadway, with a boyfriend back at home that he couldn’t be happier with. But when he comes upon Ben cuddled up with a mystery boy, he starts to wonder if his feelings for Ben ever truly went away.
Even as the boys try to focus on their futures, they can’t seem to help running into each other in the present. Is the universe forcing them to question if they’re actually meant to be?
Possibly not. After all, things didn’t work the first time around.
Possibly yes. After all, the sparks are still flying.
Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith and raise a glass.
Here’s to celebrating old friends!
Here’s to embracing new beginnings!
Here’s to believing in second chances!

I haven’t read this duo before, but this does sound like a sweet story!
If it’s like their last one, it should be a pretty cute read. 🙂
Second chances romance! This sounds lovely!
Looks like a fun one. 🙂

It sounds like the first book really needed a sequel, so glad you’re going to get one😁

Yeah, I found the way the first one ended a little frustrating so I’m very happy to return to this world and hopefully get a better ending this time around.
I didn’t know they had written a follow up to What If It’s Us! This is definitely one to look forward to.
I think so too. 🙂
Both of these authors are so well-liked. I would love to try this series. I hope you get the ending you want with this one! Enjoy it when you read it. Happy reading, Suzanne!
Thank you! 🙂
Sensational that you got a follow up book coming.

Yep, I think so too. 🙂
So many people love these authors. I’ve never read them but I hope you enjoy this one!
Thank you! 🙂
It sounds like an interesting book! it’s nice there is a sequel if the ending to the first one left things untied – hopefully this completes the story nicely for you! 🙂
Hope you are having a great weekend 🙂

Oh I’m excited for this one too! I also wasn’t fond of the ending of the first book, so I’m eager to find out what happens next 🙂
Me too. I really hope we get what we should have gotten in the first book.
