Sneaky Peak! Love Songs & Other Lies by Jessica Pennington

I was approved for this preview MONTHS ago on Netgalley, but I was holding off on reading it until a little bit closer to the release date. When the release date of the book was pushed back I delayed some more as who wants to read a few chapters of a book, only for it to abruptly end, then spend almost a year waiting to find out what happens? 
Not me. 
I can barely wait five minutes for the kettle to boil without losing my patience. 
However, it's January. 
The book releases in April. 
I thought I'd be safe enough reading the preview now... And okay, the fact it was sitting on my Netgalley list as unread for so long was annoying me. 
But I thought I really did think it'd be ok! 
And I was wrong. 
I was hideously, horribly, unforgivably wrong. 
Waiting five minutes to read the rest of this book is five minutes too many, let along four and a half months! 
What the hell was I thinking?! 
I got five chapters. 
Five perfect chapters that sucked me straight in and made me feel giddy. 
Five chapters that presented an addictive romance and story. 
Five chapters that teased me with a story I have a feeling I'm really going to love. 
And that is a problem. 
Want to know why? 
Because it doesn't release until APRIL 24th! 
Bah humbug to my first 'read' of the New Year. 
Well, bah until the 24th of April and then it'll be hello my precious. 

Here's hoping the rest of the book lives up to expectations and that spring comes quickly! 

I've added the blurb and stuff in an attempt to convince others to join me in impatiently waiting on April. 
You're welcome. 

(P.S I LOVE this cover!!! 😍) 

Summer romance and second chances, the songs that stay in your head, and the boy you’ll never forget. 

Two years after rock-song-worthy heartbreak, Virginia Miller is looking forward to a fun, carefree summer. Her friends just landed a spot on a battling bands reality show, and Vee is joining them for her dream internship on tour. Three months with future rockstars seems like an epic summer plan. Until she learns she’ll also be sharing the bus with Cam. Her first love, and her first heartbreak. Now Vee has more than just cameras to dodge, and Cam’s determination to win her forgiveness is causing TMZ-worthy problems for both of them. With cameras rolling, she’ll have to decide if her favourite breakup anthem deserves a new ending. And if she’s brave enough to expose her own secrets to keep Cam’s under wraps.


  1. Oh no! I hate that! It's hard with sequels as well. Read a book so long before it comes out, love it, and then have to wait for the sequel. I can imagine how hard this is going to be for you to wait! Agonizing! I'm really glad you enjoyed it though!

  2. Ooh you're brave! lol I can't do sneak peeks.

    I guess,on the plus side, this will be a fun book. It looks really good!

    For What It's Worth

  3. Oh, no! Your thoughts on having to wait for the book to release reminds me of a line on Arrested Development, "I've made a huge mistake." But at least you enjoyed the five chapters. The alternative would probably be annoying after you waited sch a long time to read it. I'll go check out Pennington's book on Goodreads now (:
