Waiting on Wednesday (1)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I am waiting on:

Crossed by Ally Condie
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Publication Date: November 1, 2011

In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky — taken by the Society to his certain death — only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.
Cassia’s quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander — who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia’s heart — change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever
. (Summary from goodreads)

Now, I know I didn't really love Matched, but I'm hoping that the story will really pick up in Crossed. This book couldn't come out sooner!

So, what are you waiting on?


  1. This book sounds interesting! I will have to add to my pile of TBR books.

    I am a new follower

  2. I liked Matched so this one is definitely in my wishlist too .. The cover looks gorgeous =) !

  3. I liked Matched so this one is definitely in my wishlist too .. The cover looks gorgeous =) !

  4. I am definitely looking forward to this one! I loved Matched!

  5. @ Sharon Thanks for following!

    @ Elodie The cover is beautiful. The one for Matched is too. It's so symbolic of the story itself.

    @ Jill Thanks! Glad to be a part of it :)

    @ Athena Me too! I didn't love Matched, but I think that Crossed will really help the story pick up :) Thanks for following me!

  6. I haven't read Matched yet.I've requested it though.I'm like third in line.I hope it'll be good and better than Hunger Games(no offense).
    If it is then I'll be waiting for this one :)

  7. To be completely honested, I didn't love Matched and I found the Hunger Games to be much, much better than it. However, no offense taken :) However, Matched leaves you hanging at the end.

  8. Thanks so much for stopping by and following! That means a lot to me. I'm your newest follower!

    I agree completely with what you said. I found The Hunger Games to be amazing, but to me Matched wasn't the same. It just didn't have the same intensity in my opinion. Either way though, I still can't wait to read Crossed! The cover is gorgeous!

  9. I hope Crossed is better than Matched! You know how I feel about it v.v If you get it first, which I'm sure you will, let me know if it's worht reading!

  10. I still have to read Matched! I'm trying not to read any reviews for Matched so that I don't get thoughts in my head before reading it.

  11. @ No problem! Thanks for following me :) I loved The Hunger Games (I'm not usually one for dystopia, but it was fantastic!) and then Matched was I'm excited for Crossed. Can't wait to find out what happens!

    @ Sonny You know how I feel about it too, so fingers crossed. I'll be sure to let you know!

    @ Melissa Dawn That's probably a good idea not to read the reviews. I can't wait to hear what you think of it when you do read it :)

  12. LOVE the cover to the sequel. Still haven't read the first one, but it looks AMAZING!! I heard some stuff against it, so was wondering what your take on it was?

    for My Wow:
