#waitingonwednesday: the falling in love montage

Today’s #waitingonwednesday is The Falling in Love Montage by Ciara Smyth! I have been dying to read this book since it was first announced; I mean, f/f rom-com??? Sign me up! This book releases June 9, 2020.

More reasons to add it to your tbr list:

  • lesbian rom-com!!
  • summer of reenacting rom-com cliches
  • no-strings-attached dating (at first…)
  • sounds like so much fun
  • LESBIAN. ROMANTIC. COMEDY.

Here’s the summary:

the falling in love montage cover

Saoirse doesn’t believe in love at first sight or happy endings. If they were real, her mother would still be able to remember her name and not in a care home with early onset dementia. A condition that Saoirse may one day turn out to have inherited. So she’s not looking for a relationship. She doesn’t see the point in igniting any romantic sparks if she’s bound to burn out.

But after a chance encounter at an end-of-term house party, Saoirse is about to break her own rules. For a girl with one blue freckle, an irresistible sense of mischief, and a passion for rom-coms.

Unbothered by Saoirse’s no-relationships rulebook, Ruby proposes a loophole: They don’t need true love to have one summer of fun, complete with every cliché, rom-com montage-worthy date they can dream up—and a binding agreement to end their romance come fall. It would be the perfect plan, if they weren’t forgetting one thing about the Falling in Love Montage: when it’s over, the characters actually fall in love… for real.

About the Author: Ciara Smyth studied drama, teaching, and then social work at university. She thought she didn’t know what she wanted to be when she grew up. She became a writer so she wouldn’t have to grow up. She enjoys jigging (verb: to complete a jigsaw), playing the violin badly, and having serious conversations with her pets. Ciara has lived in Belfast for over ten years and still doesn’t really know her way around. This is her debut novel.
