Waiting on Wednesday: The Book of Broken Hearts

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on. 

Title: The Book of Broken Hearts
Author: Sarah Ockler
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Date of Release: May 21, 2013

Goodreads Description: Jude has learned a lot from her older sisters, but the most important thing is this: The Vargas brothers are notorious heartbreakers. She’s seen the tears and disasters that dating a Vargas boy can cause, and she swore an oath - with candles and a contract and everything - to never have anything to do with one. Now Jude is the only sister still living at home, and she’s spending the summer helping her ailing father restore his vintage motorcycle - which means hiring a mechanic to help out. Is it Jude’s fault he happens to be cute? And surprisingly sweet? And a Vargas? Jude tells herself it’s strictly bike business with Emilio. Her sisters will never find out, and Jude can spot those flirty little Vargas tricks a mile away - no way would she fall for them. But Jude’s defenses are crumbling, and if history is destined to repeat itself, she’s speeding toward some serious heartbreak ... unless her sisters were wrong? Jude may have taken an oath, but she’s beginning to think that when it comes to love, some promises might be worth breaking.

Why am I waiting? I enjoyed both Twenty Boy Summer and Bittersweet, and am currently reading (and liking) Fixing Delilah. So, it just makes sense that I'd be excited about The Book of Broken Hearts. It looks as if Ockler will continue to emphasize familial relationships, which I love. And, of course, there's going to be a cute guy to swoon over :) 


  1. Haven't heard of this one yet. Sounds like fun!


  2. I'd read just ANYTHING by Sarah Ockler. Awesome pick! :D

    Here's my WoW

  3. I so enjoyed Bittersweet too Z, so I'm really excited for this one! I love that family is always incorporated into her stories along with a sweet romance - it just makes me happy. Can't wait!

  4. I really need to read this. I have the ARC and everything. I just haven't found the time to squeeze it in. Good choice!

  5. This sounds great, I have this one on my TBR list.

    Here's my pick this week:

  6. This sounds really good. I can't wait to read it.
    My WoW

  7. Love Sarah Ockler so I've wanted to read this one ever since I first heard about it. Nice pick!

  8. I love the cover of this one. Great pick Z :)

  9. I've never read any of her books myself, but they do sound awfully good from what I can tell. I'm all for books that emphasize familial relationships because I honestly don't read many of them. Which is kind of a sad fact!

  10. I haven't actually read anything by Sarah Ockler before, though I've heard plenty of great things. This book sounds pretty good. And it's May soon! Not too long to wait. :)

  11. Here's a confession: I haven't read a single book by Sarah Ockler, even though I heard wonderful things about them. I must do something to change that and soon.
    Thanks for sharing!

  12. This one looks very good! Really liked Twenty Boy Summer. Have to get this for my summer vacation!
