Waiting on Wednesday (10)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme started by Breaking the Spine.

I DID forget a book guys. Silly me!

My Ridiculous, Romantic Obsessions
Becca Wilhite
3/3/10

Sarah Howard's first year at the university is everything and nothing she expected especially when a very cute boy named Ben in her Art History class starts to show interest in her.

Sarah feels like she's an average, normal, everyday girl. So, when Ben (to whom she secretly refers as Adonis because she thinks he could be a Greek god) begins to take interest in her, Sarah is in denial. For one thing, last year she was deeply crushed and humiliated by Jesse James a guy who she thought liked her.

She's determined not to get burned again. But in her heart of hearts, what she really wants is a Jane Austen kind of romance. Ridiculous, right? That kind of romance doesn t exist anymore . . . or does it? Sarah is smart and fun to be around and even pretty, despite her Medusa-like red curls. She even plays the guitar. (So does Ben!) Yes, Sarah is everything Ben has wanted. He's crazy for her, but Sarah is just not getting it. She's playing hard to get, and if she s not careful, she s going to lose a real hot gentleman -- her 21st-century Mr. Darcy.

(I cannot find just a picture of the cover and don't feel like going through the process of getting it myself, but here's a link to the goodreads page.)

I'm always skeptical about Pride and Prejudice in the modern day, but the cover and title are so adorable, how can I not want this book?
