Waiting of Wednesday #4: Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

I've been so so excited for this one ever since it was announced. Online personalites? Fandoms? A cute love story? A heteroromantic asexual main character? YES PLEASE. Plus, I'm truly obsessed with this cover. I love the font and the cute hearts and just everything. Can June 6th just be here already?


After a shout-out from one of the Internet’s superstar vloggers, Natasha “Tash” Zelenka finds herself and her obscure, amateur web series, Unhappy Families, thrust into the limelight: She’s gone viral.

Her show is a modern adaptation of Anna Karenina—written by Tash’s literary love Count Lev Nikolayevich “Leo” Tolstoy. Tash is a fan of the forty thousand new subscribers, their gushing tweets, and flashy Tumblr GIFs. Not so much the pressure to deliver the best web series ever.

And when Unhappy Families is nominated for a Golden Tuba award, Tash’s cyber-flirtation with Thom Causer, a fellow award nominee, suddenly has the potential to become something IRL—if she can figure out how to tell said crush that she’s romantic asexual.

Tash wants to enjoy her newfound fame, but will she lose her friends in her rise to the top? What would Tolstoy do?

Hardcover, 367 pages
Expected publication: June 6th 2017 by Simon & Schuster
