Waiting on Wednesday: Cut Both Ways



Waiting on Wednesday was created by Breaking the Spine



Cut Both Ways by Carrie Mesrobian

Out: September 1, 2015

Official Summary: Will Caynes never has been good with girls. At seventeen, he’s still waiting for his first kiss. He’s certainly not expecting it to happen in a drunken make-out session with his best friend, Angus. But it does and now Will’s conflicted—he knows he likes girls, but he didn’t exactly hate kissing a guy.

Then Will meets Brandy, a cute and easy-to-talk-to sophomore. He’s totally into her too—which proves, for sure, that he’s not gay. So why does he keep hooking up with Angus on the sly?

Will knows he can’t keep seeing both of them, but besides his new job in a diner, being with Brandy and Angus are the best parts of his whole messed-up life. His divorced parents just complicate everything. His father, after many half-baked business ventures and endless house renovations, has started drinking again. And his mom is no help—unless loading him up with a bunch of stuff he doesn’t need plus sticking him with his twin half-sisters counts as parenting. He’s been bouncing between both of them for years, and neither one feels like home.

Deciding who to love, who to choose, where to live. Whichever way Will goes, someone will get hurt. Himself, probably the most.


Why I Want to Read: I think this sounds like a really interesting, emotional read. I'm curious what Will ultimately decides will make him happy. Plus, like I've mentioned before, I like LGBT novels or books that have LGBT characters and this sounds like a good one!

I like books that show guys dealing with their sexual coming of age. Most of the time it's about girls. I'm marking this one.

Liviania said...

I want to read this one too.

Oh this one is new to me!

This does sound really interesting, I agree! Great pick!

Brandi Kosiner said...

Sounds like an interesting coming of age, identity finding read. I am curious to see who he ends up with.

I agree - this sounds like an emotional one.

Teens have it toughest when they are trying to figure out their (sexual) identity. This sounds like an intense but worthwhile read.

Intrigued by what I thought was an interesting cover, I can't say the book blurb appeals to me though.

This is a great pick, Lauren! And I think that the fact that Angus doesn't even contemplate that he could be bi is interesting - it's as if that's somehow even more 'different' than being gay is.
I'm adding this to my TBR ;)
Happy reading.

LGBT isn't a genre I enjoy. Actually, love triangles and romance are 2 things I tend to dislike in books, as well, so this doesn't sound like something I'd pick up. :/

Sounds VERY interesting.

Interesting... I haven't actually read much LBGT books - in fact, I haven't actually read ANY aside from TMI, which I haven't made it to the Malec stage yet. I'm actually interested in looking at this one maybe.

Midnight Cowgirl said...

It does sound intriguing :)
