Waiting on Wednesday (52)

Waiting on Wednesday/s are hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine in which you choose a book or books that you're excited and waiting for.
This week's Waiting on Wednesday book is...

Title: Kill the Boy Band
Author: Goldy Moldavsky
Publisher: Point
Publication date: February 23rd 2015
Pre-order the book: Amazon / Barnes and Noble

From debut author Goldy Moldavsky, the story of four superfan friends whose devotion to their favorite boy band has darkly comical and murderous results.

Okay, so just know from the start that it wasn't supposed to go like this. All we wanted was to get near The Ruperts, our favorite boy band.

We didn't mean to kidnap one of the guys. It kind of, sort of happened that way. But now he's tied up in our hotel room. And the worst part of all, it's Rupert P. All four members of The Ruperts might have the same first name, but they couldn't be more different. And Rupert P. is the biggest flop out of the whole group.

We didn't mean to hold hostage a member of The Ruperts, I swear. At least, I didn't. We are fans. Okay, superfans who spend all of our free time tweeting about the boys and updating our fan tumblrs. But so what, that's what you do when you love a group so much it hurts.

How did it get this far? Who knows. I mean midterms are coming up. I really do not have time to go to hell.

Reasons for why I am excited for this book:

1) I actually heard about Kill the Boy Band at BEA and ever since I was told about it, I pretty much became obsessed with the idea of it (one of my biggest regrets was not being able to grab an ARC at the expo). So yeah, I basically stalked the author and the book everywhere. I read reviews like an addict looking for even the tiniest of fixes just to survive. Yeahp, that was me.
2) I'm not normally a fan of Contemporary books but when people start describing a book with words like "dark", "hilarious" and "unlike anything they've ever read", count me in first in line! Also, super odd but I am kind of in love with Goldy Moldavsky's name, it's cute and just rolls off the tongue.
3) Have you read the blurb? Can you look me in the eyes and tell me that you're not excited for a novel about friends accidentally kidnapping their least favourite band member from their favourite band? See? It sounds so good, am I right? You're welcome.

What are your WoW pick/s for this week? Let me know in the comments and I'll check them out!
