Today I thought I join in Waiting on Wednesday. Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme that originally created by Jill at Breaking the Spine but has since been adapted with Can’t Wait Wednesday by Teresa at Wishful Endings.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature that showcases upcoming release that we are dying to get to!
The Life and (Medieval) Times of Kit Sweetly
by Jamie Pacton
Published by: Page Street Kids
Publication date: 05 May 2020
Kit Sweetly slays sexism, bad bosses, and bad luck to become a knight at a medieval-themed restaurant.
Working as a wench―i.e. waitress―at a cheesy medieval-themed restaurant in the Chicago suburbs, Kit Sweetly dreams of being a knight like her brother. She has the moves, is capable on a horse, and desperately needs the raise that comes with knighthood, so she can help her mom pay the mortgage and hold a spot at her dream college.
Company policy allows only guys to be knights. So when Kit takes her brother’s place and reveals her identity at the end of the show, she rockets into internet fame and a whole lot of trouble with the management. But the Girl Knight won’t go down without a fight. As other wenches join her quest, a protest forms. In a joust before Castle executives, they’ll prove that gender restrictions should stay medieval―if they don’t get fired first.
Why I can’t wait to read this
I don’t read a lot of YA contemporary but this is giving me Well Met feel which I love because I need more books set in Renaissance Faire’s in my life.
While I was pulled into the story because it’s set in a medieval-themed restaurant, Kit sounds like she is going to be one bad ass character. I love that it sounds like she is going to fight the rules rather then left go of her dream of being a Knight. I’m excited to see just how she goes about fighting the gender restrictions.
That’s it for me. Comment down below and let me know which books release date you cannot wait for.
Until next time, happy reading!
