Waiting on Wednesday (9)

I haven't done this in a while (basically in a month), but anways, it's Waiting on Wednesday today! This is a weekly meme, which is brought to you by Jill at Breaking the Spine!This meme is where you can post a post about what you're really look forward to. And I'm always looking forward to new releases :)

This week I'm waiting for...

Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Releasing on: March 22nd, 2011
What if you knew exactly when you would die?

Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left.
I think that basically everyone's waiting for this book since I've been seeing it in so many Waiting on Wednesday's over the past few weeks, but it sounds really good.  The cover is also absolutely beautiful!  I'm definitely reading this one for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge :D

What are you guys waiting for this week?

  1. I wish NetGalley would get this one up. I think its a great book. Agree with you on the cover too. Its a good mix of dystopian and fantasy, but not over the top. I think I'll like it.

  2. I am so excited for this one after seeing it all day.

    Happy Holidays

    My WOW


We love to hear from you guys!! And feel free to ask any questions! ♥
