It’s time for Waiting on Wednesday, where we give you the 411 on the books that we can’t wait to arrive. This week, we’re bringing you a story for anyone who’s ever wanted to be a princess:
Gorgeous by Paul Rudnick
Anticipated Arrival Date: May 1, 2013
This is a book for anyone who’s ever faced herself in the mirror, wondered if a new lipstick could change her life, and either read VOGUE or thrown it across the room.
When eighteen-year-old Becky Randle’s mother dies, she’s summoned from Missouri to meet Tom Kelly, the top designer in the world. He makes her an impossible offer: He’ll create three dresses to transform Becky from an ordinary girl into the world’s most beautiful woman.
Becky thinks Tom is a lunatic, but she accepts and is remade as Rebecca. When Becky looks in the mirror, she sees herself–a mess of split ends and cankles. But when anyone else looks at Becky, they see five-alarm hotness.
Soon Rebecca is the darling of the fashion world, but when she meets meets Prince Gregory, heir to the British throne, everything starts to crumble. Because Rebecca aside, Becky loves him. And the idea of a prince looking past Rebecca to fall in love with the ordinary girl inside? There’s not enough magic in the world.
We feel like we’ve been waiting forever for this one. NGL, we checked it out first because of the beautiful cover. Throw in a handsome prince? It’s like this book was written just for us. Have you read it yet? Lettuce know what you think!
So, like totally tell us what’s got you bouncing in anticipation this week. What are you waiting on?
