Waiting on Wednesday (23)

Waiting on Wednesday = started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

Today's pick:

Scones and Sensibility by Lindsay Eland

description from the Tenners site:

Alas, to speak thus of Polly's story would require much more time allotted here, but I shall make a gallant attempt. At the blossoming age of thirteen, Polly Madassa is anything but a material girl living in a material world. On the contrary, though she lives in our contemporary world, Polly is certain she was born for a more romantic time. Her heroines are the lovely Anne of Green Gables and the charming Elizabeth Bennet. So upon finishing up that glorious work of fiction Pride and Prejudice, Polly is convinced that her true calling is to bring lovers in her small beach town together...whether they like it or not. For wasn't it she who introduced the bull dog down the road to the Dalmation across the street? And what better way to bring two people together than a chocolate croissant or fresh baked scone from her family's own bakery?
She is certain that, just like Elizabeth and Anne, she will not fail...but when you're matchmaking for your sixteen-year-old sister, your best friends father, and the "plump" lady down the street, life turns out to be much more complicated than in a book.


Why I want it:
  1. The cover is PURPLE! I enjoy purple covers. Purple pretty.
  2. Know how there are a bunch of titles that are plays on Pride and Prejudice? Well, finally, there is a different Austen title that's being mixed up.
  3. It sounds cuuuuute. Last time I read a matchmaker book- Miss Match- I really liked it. So let's hope this one is just as good.
  4. Lindsay is a TENNER! Tenners are fierce.
Release date is December 22, 2009. So I guess she's like a Tenner-Deb hybrid. I dunno.


  1. The title is awesome. Like Prada and Prejudice. xD The cover? It's brilliant! Love it! I can't wait for this book!

  2. I want it. I love the color purple too, so definitely a cute cover. It reminds me of that book...GAH, I can't think..Marilyn Kaye wrote it and the girl has like a pig nose, the book became a movie....anywhooo that was my first thought when I saw it (today at least).

    Again, sounds really good.


  3. This sounds so cute and the cover is so pretty. :D

  4. Yeah! Can't wait. This book is going to awesome! It has great artwork on the cover and an incredible author.

  5. Tenner-Deb?

    And I love all the plays on Jane Austen's titles!

  6. This one sounds very cute! I love fun romance and I can relate with Polly's heroine being Anne.

  7. This sounds like an interesting read. I may be getting this when it comes out :)

  8. I second wanting this one (badly)!

    1) The cover is ADORABLE
    2) the title is so cute and clever
    3) I just really love the sound of the plot!!
    4) Lindsay is so nice!
