Waiting on Wednesday: The Espressologist


The Espressologist
by Kristina Springer
Comes out September 15, 2009

   What's your drink of choice? Is it a small pumpkin spice latte? Then you're lots of fun and a bit sassy. Or a medium americano? You prefer simplicity in life. Or perhaps it's a small decaf soy sugar-free hazelnut caffe latte? Some might call you a yuppie.
   Seventeen-year-old barista Jane Turner has this theory that you can tell a lot about a person by their regular coffee drink. She scribbles it all down in a notebook and calls is Espressology. So it's not a totally crazy idea when Jane starts hooking up some of her friends based on their coffee orders. Like her best friend Em, a medium hot chocolate, and Cam, a toffee nut latte. But when her boss, Derek, gets wind of Jane's Espressology, he makes it in-store holiday promotion, promising customers their perfect matches for the price of their favorite coffee. Things are going better than Derek could ever have hoped, so why is Jane freaked out? Does it have anything to do with Em dating Cam? She's the one who set them up! She should be happy for them, right?
This sounds totally amazing/sweet/a perfect read for me! I am dying for a copy--it looks like a light, fun read that I'd totally enjoy--and I love how unique it sounds, too!

Why do we have to wait until September?! I immediately sent the link to this blogpost to my best friend, a coffee FEEN, who ironically has the name Em as well! She isn't even a reader, and she wants to read this! Can't wait =)
