Waiting On Wednesday (21)

Time for the"Waiting On Wednesday" weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Waiting on Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari
To be Published: June 1st 2011 by Scholastic

A thrilling tale of adventure, romance, and one girl's unyielding courage through the darkest of nightmares.

Epidemics, floods, droughts--for sixteen-year-old Lucy, the end of the world came and went, taking 99% of the population with it. As the weather continues to rage out of control, and Sweepers clean the streets of plague victims, Lucy survives alone in the wilds of Central Park. But when she's rescued from a pack of hunting dogs by a mysterious boy named Aidan, she reluctantly realizes she can't continue on her own. She joins his band of survivors, yet, a new danger awaits her: the Sweepers are looking for her. There's something special about Lucy, and they will stop at nothing to have her.

I love a good Dystopian and this book sounds really intriguing; few survivors, a mysterious boy, and danger lurking around every corner sounds like a good read to me!

What book are YOU waiting on?

I just saw this on Jenny's site and I agree with you both, this looks like a fun dystopian read with a fun new twist. Or at least a fun new twist to me. :)

I don't really read dystopian novels but I think I will give this one a try because it sounds great. Who knows maybe I will discover a new favourite genre.
