Want It Wednesday #12

I have been eagerly awaiting this weeks Want It Wednesday post since last Wednesday when I fell in love with a new series I saw on Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf. Thank you Lauren!



Release Date: December 22, 2009 (Waaay too long, I know!)


About the Book: (From the Author's Site) Felicity Walker believes in true love. That’s why she applies for a gig at the matchmaking company Cupid’s Hollow. But when Felicity gets the job, she learns that she isn’t just a matchmaker…she’s a cupid! (There’s more than one of them, you know.)

Armed with a hot pink, tricked-out PDA infused with the latest in cupid magic (love arrows shot through email), Felicity works to meet her quota of successful matches.

But when she bends the rules of cupidity by matching her best friend Maya with three different boys at once, disaster strikes. Felicity needs to come up with a plan to set it all right, pronto, before she gets fired…and before Maya ends up with her heart split in three.

GreenBeanTeenQueens Says: Ok, a long time ago when I was in high school, there was this wonderful (but sadly short-lived) TV show called Cupid. It was created by Rob Thomas, (pre Veronica Mars) and it was about a guy who thought he was Cupid and each week had to match couples. Ever since I watched that show, I have been in love with everything Cupid, especially modern versions of Cupid. Plus, I love romance and can't get enough of fun romantic comedies.
So naturally, when I heard about this new trilogy, I was squealing in girly delight!:) The premise sounds wonderful and quirky, which I love, and full of girly romance and crazy situations. Plus, Felicity has a tricked out hot pink PDA-how jealous am I??
Check out the covers for the next two in the series:
So adorable!! I really can't wait to read these! (And thank you ABC for giving Cupid the TV show a second shot, although I miss the original cast dearly.) Maybe this will just end up being a Cupid-filled year!:)

  4. Hmm never heard of that show, definitely a fan of Rob Thomas b/c of Veronica Mars (how I miss that show!) I'll have to check out the old one and the new one. :D I also love anything cupid and sometimes I like romantic comedies it depends, sometimes they end up being all bleh.
