Waiting On Wednesday (29)

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:

The Fox Inheritance by Mary E. Pearson
To be Published: April 30, 2011 by Henry Holt and Co.

Once there were three. Three friends who loved each other—Jenna, Locke, and Kara. And after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, their three minds were kept alive, spinning in a digital netherworld. Even in that disembodied nightmare, they were still together. At least at first. When Jenna disappeared, Locke and Kara had to go on without her. Decades passed, and then centuries.
Two-hundred-and-sixty years later, they have been released at last. Given new, perfect bodies, Locke and Kara awaken to a world they know nothing about, where everyone they once knew and loved is long dead.
Everyone except Jenna Fox.

I honestly thought The Adoration of Jenna Fox was going to be a stand alone novel, so I was surprised to find out that this companion novel was heading our way.  I am not a big fan of the cover, but I am really curious to see where they plan to go with this new angle of the story.  I will be keeping me out for this one when it is released in April!

What book are YOU waiting on?

I have yet to read The Adoration of Jenna Fox but after this snippet of the companion novel I'm gonna add it to my TBR. Excellent WoW pick (and I love the cover)!

Cool! I've been wanting to read The Adoration of Jenna Fox for a while :) I thought it was a stand alone book. I'm glad it's not.

I had no idea there was going to be a sequel to TAoJF either but I am coming around to the idea now and am really looking forward to this one.

I LOVE it when they come out with a new book that you aren't expecting (that happened with me and the Mistborn series)! Hope you enjoy it!

I haven't read the Adoration of Jenna Fox yet, even though it's sitting on my shelf. I'll have to before this gets released, this sounds like a great story. Love the cover.
