Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.
Happy Wednesday y’all! Today I’m eagerly waiting on Bellegarde by Jamie Lilac, a YA historical rom-com being compared to Bridgerton. I can’t get enough of this historical rom-coms. They are so much fun, not super historically accurate, but fun all the same. This one has a She’s All That spin to it that I’m excited to read.

Ooh la la! A historical rom-com with a modern twist -- perfect for fans of Bridgerton, A Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, and She's All That.
Evie Clement has perfected the art of avoiding attention as she works at her family’s bakery and dreams of a life where she can trade dusting flour for designing dresses. Her focus is on honing her sewing skills—she doesn’t need to be fawned over by some teenage boy.
Least of all Beau Bellegarde--the playboy of Paris, the second son of the ultra-wealthy Bellegarde family, the most popular guy in their prestigious high school. Others may swoon over his rakish charm and winning smile, but not Evie.
Unfortunately for Evie, Beau needs her. His conniving step-brother has roped him into an impossible bet: turn the biggest wallflower they know into the winning Bellegarde Bloom at the annual Court of Flowers Ball, or lose his entire fortune.
Evie can’t understand why Beau has taken an interest in her, but she can’t help but be intrigued...
Can love bloom in the most unexpected of places?
