Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine.
My pick of the week is...
One-Man Guy by Michael Barakiva
Funny and heartfelt, One Man Guy brings to mind the raucous family humor and gentle romance of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, as told with David Sedaris–style wit
Alek Khederian should have guessed something was wrong when his parents took him to a restaurant. Everyone knows that Armenians never eat out. Between bouts of interrogating the waitress and criticizing the menu, Alek’s parents announce that he’ll be attending summer school in order to bring up his grades. Alek is sure this experience will be the perfect hellish end to his hellish freshman year of high school. He never could’ve predicted that he’d meet someone like Ethan.
Ethan is everything Alek wishes he were: confident, free-spirited, and irreverent. He can’t believe a guy this cool wants to be his friend. And before long, it seems like Ethan wants to be more than friends. Alek has never thought about having a boyfriend—he’s barely ever had a girlfriend—but maybe it’s time to think again.
~*~Why I Am Waiting~*~
I've really been trying to read more LGBTQ literature lately, so that's one reason. But secondly, this looks like it's going to be a really great, quick read that will stay in my mind for a while. It looks hilarious, though it tackles a big issue in modern society. Plus, anything compared to My Big Fat Greek Wedding deserves to be read a million times over.
