For Your TBR Pile - Summer of Supernovas

The Characters

WILAMENA (WIL) is a fun and spunky girl who has a closet full of vintage dresses and a heart she wears on her sleeve. She's mapped out her romantic future by the stars.

GRANT is the guitar playing, duct-taped shoe wearing brother with a tattooed sleeve and a lime green car.

SETH is the more buttoned-up brother who knows all the right things to say. He'll take you up in a hot air balloon and make you swoon.

When astrology determines your best match for romance, Wilamena is sure she knows which brother is right for her. While Seth wines and dines her, Wilamena continues to bump into Grant at every turn. Does she stay the course of the stars or does she pave her own path? 

For Readers Who
  • Are looking for a super-swoony, light-hearted romance
  • Loved Stephanie Perkins' Anna and the French Kiss / Isla and the Happily Ever After
  • Knows their Pisces from their Capricorns
What I Loved

That Darcy Woods writes such fun characters, witty dialogue, and soft-hearted relationships. Not only were the boys fun to read, but Wil's relationship with her Grams was so wonderful. It reminded me a lot of the closeness I had with my own Grandmother. 

Wil's friendships with boys, as well as girls, is really refreshing. She mingles well with all the characters, not just focusing on the boy de jour. My favorite non-romantic character was Mannie, the drummer in Grant's band. He was overly flirtatious and comically charming.

Plus, this book won The Golden Heart Award from RWA (Romance Writers of America) in 2013!
