Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by @ BreakingTheSpine where you share with the world one book that you're anticipating the release of or getting your hands on.
[PS, I've written that post a long time ago, but for some strange reason, I forgot to post it. I'm sorry, but yay! This book is out now. I insisted on posting it because I'm genuinely excited for this one and want to spread the love.]
In this intimate memoir of life beyond the camera, Connor Franta shares the lessons he has learned on his journey from small-town boy to Internet sensation—so far. Here, Connor offers a look at his Midwestern upbringing as one of four children in the home and one of five in the classroom; his struggles with identity, body image, and sexuality in his teen years; and his decision to finally pursue his creative and artistic passions in his early twenties, setting up his thrilling career as a YouTube personality, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and tastemaker.
Exploring his past with insight and humor, his present with humility, and his future with hope, Connor reveals his private struggles while providing heartfelt words of wisdom for young adults. His words will resonate with anyone coming of age in the digital era, but at the core is a timeless message for people of all ages: don’t be afraid to be yourself and to go after what you truly want.
This full-color collection includes photography and childhood clippings provided by Connor and is a must-have for anyone inspired by his journey.

When I heard that THE Connor Franta was coming out with a book, I knew that it would be completely artistic and I love everything about this, from the book cover to the title!
I usually am not with the idea of YouTubers writing books and using their fame to sell them, but I am really excited for this book!! Connor is a great person and a memoir is pretty logical for a famous person, I would love to see things from his perspective.
