Waiting On Wednesday: Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)
 
 
Y'all. This WOW has me crawling in the dirt in need
 
 
 
Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
 
What if you’d been living your life as if you were dying—only to find out that you had your whole future ahead of you?
When sixteen-year-old Alice is diagnosed with leukemia, her prognosis is grim. To maximize the time she does have, she vows to spend her final months righting wrongs—however she sees fit. She convinces her friend Harvey, whom she knows has always had feelings for her, to help her with a crazy bucket list that’s as much about revenge (humiliating her ex-boyfriend and getting back at her arch nemesis) as it is about hope (doing something unexpectedly kind for a stranger and reliving some childhood memories). But just when Alice’s scores are settled, she goes into remission. 
Now Alice is forced to face the consequences of all that she’s said and done, as well as her true feelings for Harvey. But has she done irreparable damage to the people around her, and to the one person who matters most?
 
 
 

First of all, I want to be a pediatric hematologist, which is the name of the doctor that treats kids with problems with their blood, like leukemia. LIKE ALICE.
 
 
Second, BEST FRIENDS FOREVER.
I love to read about childhood friends with a relationship that blossoms into something more.
 
 
Third. Harvey has the best boy name ever.

  1. This looks so cute! I don't really like "cancer books", but I adore it when the author doesn't make the main character's life revolve around the sickness and lets them just live their life.

    Check out my WoW, please? It's at My Bookshelf Is Hungry

    Much love, Amber
    P.S. I love your beautiful face too!

  2. Great gifs as always. Loved Harvey from Sabrina the Teenage Witch. LOL This sounds pretty good. Doing everything you want because you think you won't be around but then you are. I also LOVE best friends romances. I hope she gets with Harvey.
