Synopsis
When Bea meets Beck, she knows instantly that he's her kind of crazy. Sweet, strong, kinda-messed-up Beck understands her like no one else can. He makes her feel almost normal. He makes her feel like she could fall in love again.

But despite her feelings for Beck, Bea can't stop thinking about someone else: a guy who is gorgeous and magnetic... and has no idea Bea even exists. But Bea knows a ton about him. She spends a lot of time watching him. She has a journal full of notes. Some might even say she's obsessed.

Bea tells herself she's got it all under control, but this isn't a choice, it's a compulsion. The truth is, she's breaking down... and she might end up breaking her own heart. (Goodreads)
Why I'm Waiting
Honestly, I am really, REALLY hoping that OCD Love Story is an accurate depiction of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, aka OCD. As a psychology minor (I should have majored!) fascinated with abnormal psych, I am all about anxiety disorders and the like so I am curious to see how Haydu takes on OCD. And I will be checking my Abnormal Psychology textbook periodically to make sure she got it right because I'm weird like that. I have come to accept it.

Plus, the cover is insanely bright and colorful! And I just love the repetition of, "I WILL NOT STALK THAT BOY." Sounds like this girl is just short of crazy. How could I not want to read this?

What is everyone else waiting on this week?
