Waiting on Wednesday: First & Then by Emma Mills

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

     I am a huge fan of Jane Austen, but I tend to stay away from books that are described as Austen retellings. For Darkness Shows the Stars (a retelling of Persuasion) was the book to show me what I could be missing, so I'm trying to keep an open mind going forward. First & Then looks like a really great book, so I have high hopes that I will enjoy this "Pride and Prejudice meets Friday Night Lights" story.

From Goodreads: Devon Tennyson wouldn't change a thing. She's happy watching Friday night games from the bleachers, silently crushing on best friend Cas, and blissfully ignoring the future after high school. But the universe has other plans. It delivers Devon's cousin Foster, an unrepentant social outlier with a surprising talent for football, and the obnoxiously superior and maddeningly attractive star running back, Ezra, right where she doesn't want them first into her P.E. class and then into every other aspect of her life.

Pride and Prejudice meets Friday Night Lights in this contemporary novel about falling in love with the unexpected boy, with a new brother, and with yourself. 
First & Then is scheduled to be released on October 13, 2015.

  1. I also love Diana's FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS. No one else seems to so thank you for being a kindred spirit Sarah. This one sounds pretty interesting and man I am intrigued by the pitch... I love FNL and P&P! Thanks for sharing. I also love how simple the cover is.

    1. Oh, I loved that book! Persuasion is one of my favorite books anyway, so I think I was predisposed to also love FDSTS.
