Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week's pick: If You Were Here by Jen Lancaster
Due out: May 3, 2011

Product Description from Amazon:

Told in the uproariously entertaining voice readers have come to expect from Jen Lancaster, If You Were Here follows Amish-zombie-teen- romance author Mia and her husband Mac (and their pets) through the alternately frustrating, exciting, terrifying-but always funny-process of buying and renovating their first home in the Chicago suburbs that John hughes's movies made famous. Along their harrowing renovation journey, Mia and Mac get caught up in various wars with the homeowners' association, meet some less-than-friendly neighbors, and are joined by a hilarious cast of supporting characters, including a celebutard ex- landlady. As they struggle to adapt to their new surroundings- with Mac taking on the renovations himself- Mia and Mac will discover if their marriage is strong enough to survive months of DIY renovations.
I have laughed through Lancaster's memoirs, and am anxious to see her first work of fiction.
What book are you anxiously waiting to read?

I had to laugh at that "Amish zombie teen romance" bit! This sounds like a great book. Thanks for making me aware of it. Good pick!

I always pick up Lancaster's book, but always end up returning them to the shelf because I already found too many books. I think it's time to start reading her ... the "Amish zombie teen romance" line pulled me in!
