Waiting On: Rules of Summer by Joanna Philbin

Rules of Summer by Joanna Philbin
To be published: June 4, 2013 by Poppy
Rules of Summer
THE RULES OF SUMMER is about two 17 year-old girls living in the same beachfront mansion in East Hampton for the summer, one “upstairs” (the daughter of a very blue-blooded family) and one “downstairs” (the niece of the family’s housekeeper.) Isabel is the privileged daughter who’s used to having guys fall at her feet. Rory is the no-nonsense girl from a small New Jersey town who’s always been the friend, never the girlfriend. Besides becoming each other’s unlikely allies, both Rory and Isabel have a summer romance that will change their lives. [goodreads]

A summer romance you say? Yes, please! Whenever I see those two words in a book's description it's an automatic interest for me.  I am intrigued by this story since it's about two girls, in different social classes.  The early reviews have described it as "cute & fast read", so I think it will be a nice addition to my summer reading list.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


  1. I haven't seen this one before but it seems perfect for the summer! I really like the cover, too. Nice pick!

    Check out my WoW here!

  2. Oooo so that sounds super cute!!! Definitely wan to read this one :))

  3. I've heard great things about Philbin's other contemporary books, so I'm excited to read this one. Plus, I'm always looking for more cute summery beach reads! Thanks for sharing your pick for this week, Ginger! :)

  4. That sounds pretty awesome. Anytime there's an "upstairs" and a "downstairs" character, my mind always pops into Night Beach, even if the synopsis is totally different! THE RULES OF SUMMER sounds great and I love that typography. As always, great choice.

  5. I immediately added this book to Goodreads! I love that it's a summer book but also has that upstairs/downstairs vibe going on.

  6. As a Gilmore Girls fan, any book with a character named Rory is one I want to read. :) This sounds interesting!

  7. Ahhh! YES PLEASE! I'd really, really like this now. Yay, summertime! :)

  8. I love love love reading summer romances in the summertime. Just something about it :)

  9. YES!! I cannot wait for this one! You know she's Regis Philbin's daughter? She probably drew from personal experience for this book.
