Title: Waiting for Tom Hanks
Author: Kerry Winfrey
Publication Date: June 11, 2019
Can a romcom-obssessed romantic finally experience the meet-cute she always dreamed of or will reality never compare to fiction, in this charming debut adult novel from Kerry Winfrey.
Annie is twenty-seven years old, single, and obsessed with romantic comedies (she and her mother watched them religiously, before her mom died). Her dating life is limited by the expectations she’s formed from these movies.
She is not as open to new experiences as she might be, because she’s waiting for her Tom Hanks–i.e., a guy she’ll find in the perfect, meet-cute romantic comedy way. When Annie does finally meet her perfect match, it’s not quite in the way she expected, and she’s forced to reckon with the walls she’s built around herself over the years.Why am I excited?
Who doesn’t love a solid romantic comedy?! This book is basically about shedding those expectations of finding the perfect match and I am SO here for it. Plus…there’s bound to be several rom-com references…right? I’m also excited to see which romance trope(s) this contains because it could be anything! The cover is just so fun and splashy and it looks like the perfect summer romance.
