Happy Wednesday! Originally created by Jill at Breaking The Spine, Waiting on Wednesday was adapted to Can’t Wait Wednesday by Tressa at Wishful Endings. It is a weekly meme that spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating!

I was going to wait a little longer to post this one, since it doesn’t publish until early May, but then I checked my email and found out I’m on the Street Team for this book! And so now without any further ado, this week’s Can’t Wait Wednesday book is…

In this gender-swapped, feminist A KNIGHT’S TALE meets MOXIE, rescuing everyone, especially her family, is seventeen-year-old Kit Sweetly’s greatest aspiration. It’s a heroic impulse, but her schemes usually make things worse. Working as a wench—i.e. waitress — at a cheesy medieval themed restaurant in the suburbs of Chicago fuels her fire for glory, and Kit dreams of being a knight, like her brother Chris. She knows the moves, she’s capable on a horse, and she desperately needs the raise that comes with Knighthood, so she can help her mom pay the mortgage and hold a spot at her dream college.
Defying company policy, Kit takes her brother’s place as knight one evening. When Kit reveals her identity at the end of the show, she rockets herself into internet fame and a whole lot of workplace trouble. But when Chris gets seriously injured at work, Kit has to find a way to monetize her fame in order to pay his hospital bills. Not to mention navigate a changing relationship with her best friend and longtime crush, while galvanizing the company into changing their sexist policies.
If she can’t figure out how to save the day in time, she’ll lose her job, her family’s house, her spot at her dream college, and the guy she loves.

I AM SO EXCITED for this book! What upcoming books are you excited to read? Let me know in the comments and have a splendiferous week!
