Waiting On Wednesday (33)

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:

Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
To be Published:  September 27th 2011 by St. Martin's Griffin
What if you were bound for a new world, about to pledge your life to someone you'd been promised to since birth, and one unexpected violent attack made survival—not love—the issue?

Out in the murky nebula lurks an unseen enemy: the New Horizon. On its way to populate a distant planet in the wake of Earth's collapse, the ship's crew has been unable to conceive a generation to continue its mission. They need young girls desperately, or their zealous leader's efforts will fail. Onboard their sister ship, the Empyrean, the unsuspecting families don't know an attack is being mounted that could claim the most important among them...

Fifteen-year-old Waverly is part of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space; she was born on the Empyrean, and the large farming vessel is all she knows. Her concerns are those of any teenager—until Kieran Alden proposes to her. The handsome captain-to-be has everything Waverly could ever want in a husband, and with the pressure to start having children, everyone is sure he's the best choice. Except for Waverly, who wants more from life than marriage—and is secretly intrigued by the shy, darkly brilliant Seth.

But when the Empyrean faces sudden attack by their assumed allies, they quickly find out that the enemies aren't all from the outside.

Glow is the most riveting series debut since The Hunger Games, and promises to thrill and challenge readers of all ages.

I was first intrigued by the cover, but that synopsis has me hooked! A dystopian sci-fi with a mix of romance and danger? Sign me up.

What book are YOU waiting on?

Hi Scoot! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier :) New follower here! Wow, this one does sound good, thanks so much posting about it-- I don't think I've read recently (maybe EVER?) a sci-fi book, but you are so right, this synopsis has me hooked too! I think I will be adding this to my TBR list, it just sounds very unique :)

Have a great rest of your week and happy reading!
