Waiting on Wednesday: Salvation by Anne Osterlund

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)


by Anne O.
A smart, unexpected romance from an award-winning author. 
Salvador Resendez--Salva to his friends--appears to have it all. His Mexican immigrant family has high expectations, and Salva intends to fulfill them. He's student body president, quarterback of the football team, and has a near-perfect GPA. Everyone loves him. 
Especially Beth Courant, AKA the walking disaster area. Dreamy and shy, Beth is used to blending into the background. But she's also smart, and she has serious plans for her future.
Popular guy and bookish girl--the two have almost nothing in common. Until fate throws them together and the attraction is irresistible. Soon Beth is pushing Salva to set his sights higher than ever--because she knows he has more to offer, more than even he realizes.
Then tragedy strikes--and threatens to destroy everything that Salva has worked for. Will Beth's love be enough to save him?
Thoughtful and romantic, this is a beautifully written story about following your heart and fulfilling your potential.
So, I am Mexican and I actually avoid books with Mexican characters like the plague. (That's why I never read that Simone Elkeles' series)
'Cause it's always kind of painful to read the cliches and I always feel like no one can understand us if they aren't one of us and yadda yadda...
but this book sounds too good to pass!
Count me in this time!


  1. Oh wow, this book sounds great! I hadn't heard of this before, but I'm definitely adding it to my tbr pile. Thanks for sharing!

    My WoW

  2. I love Osterlund's writing and I'm excited to see her tackle a contemporary. Hope you love it when you pick it up!

  3. I know! Nobody ever does D:!
    I already read this one and it wasn't so bad, just one monstrosity of a mistake were it says Michaocán instead of Michoacán D:

    and the part were they celebrate Cinco de Mayo. I have never EVER know any Mexican to actually celebrate that date. Ever. worse, when you go to the states and hey try to say Feliz Cinco de Mayo with a horrible accent D:!

    PS: The Simone Elkeles stories aren't so bad - cliches, yes - but if you take a deep breath you can actually look past it :3


I love your beautiful face!
