Wishing for Someday Soon by Tiffany King

Wishing For Someday Soon
Book Description:

Seventeen year old Katelyn Richards is a stronger person than anyone will ever know, and that is just the way she wants it. Behind her normal facade lies the reality of a broken home life. Thanks to her abusive mother, a string of deadbeat stepfathers, and an unsympathetic system, Katelyn has learned that the only one she can count on is herself. Her life’s mission has become to shield her nine year old brother, Kevin, and to give him the future that they both wish for. A life with no more abuse, no worries about where their next meal will come from, and no more wondering if they will have a roof over their heads.
When her mother moves them again, this time to a small town in Montana, Katelyn’s resolve is shaken when she meets Max, a cute boy from her new school, who gets a glimpse into her real world. Max slowly manages to break through Katelyn’s wall of distrust, stirring up feelings she never saw coming. Now with her world more complicated than she ever intended, Katelyn struggles with the decision to follow her heart into the arms of the first boy she has ever loved. A decision that could risk the promise she made to protect Kevin, and to give them the ‘someday soon’ that is so close within their grasp.

Christina's BookReview
"I promise to protect you from any more harm, and I promise I will do everything in my power to make sure you get your ‘someday soon.’"


Katelyn Richards is used to moving around and not getting attached to anything or anyone. She has been taking care of her brother while her dead beat mother “sleeps” her way through life. So when they set foot in a small town Montana it’s just another town another school and another place they will leave behind. What Katelyn doesn’t expect is the kindness of the residents. Especially the attention that Max gives her.

Will Katelyn finally find a place to call HOME? Or will she continue to push away anyone that gets to close?


This book was an okay read. I’ve read books by Tiffany and was looking forward to reading this one as well. ALthough it was a good book I wished that it was as addicting as her prior reads. 

I felt like it was the same type of story I’ve read a million times. Girl is living in a rough situation, girl moves to new town, meets a good boy, they fall in love, she pulls away and boy shows her he cares, they live happily ever after. I’ve read it a few times already so reading a similar book was a little bit of a letdown.

I did like it; don’t get me wrong, but what I didn’t like was the insta-love. I didn’t feel any chemistry between the characters. I felt like the romance lacked depth. Max was perfect. Too perfect and a little boring.

The people in the town were also a little too perfect. There wasn’t any bad in the town, except Katelyn’s mother. Which to me is unrealistic now-a-days.

I understood where Kateyln was coming from with pulling away and I was sad about her home environment and loved her protective instinct for her brother. She was a good female protag. 

Overall an okay book. Likeable characters, good storyline, and a cute romance.

Tiffany is an incredible writer as you've seen in my former reviews of her books! I just think this wasn’t my book. So don’t let me make your decision!

I will let you decide!
