Waiting on Wednesday {10}

1.11.2012
"Waiting on Wednesday " is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
Expected publication: May 8th 2012 by St. Martin's Griffin

Seventeen-year-old Gene struggles to survive in a society where humans have been eaten to near extinction by the general population. When Gene is chosen to participate in the government-sponsored hunt for the remaining humans, he must learn the art of the hunt but also elude his fellow hunters whose suspicions about his true human nature are growing.









This is definitely one of the books I'm lusting for the most this year. I haven't read too much sci-fi stuff lately, but I really want to. Not to mention the cover is amazing o_o *sobs inside* Why isn't it May 8th yet? :(

Glitch by Heather Anastasiu
Expected publication: August 7th 2012 by St. Martin's Press

In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network.

When Zoe starts to malfunction (or "glitch"), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.

As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.

In this action-packed debut, Glitch begins an exciting new young adult trilogy.
I don't think I even need to say why I'm waiting on this one. (Though I'm going to pretend there is no mention or hint of a love triangle in the blurb. Let me remain in denial until I actually read the book.)

Leave a link and I'll see what you're waiting on! :)

  1. EATEN to near extinction? Wow, that sounds unbelievably creepy. And the second one is on my TBR list...but I do agree that I need to turn a blind eye to the love triangle hinted at in the blurb.

  4. The Hunt sounds very interesting. For some reason it reminds me of the Maze Runner, though they are not really similar. And Glitch sounds amazing. I'll definitely be waiting for that one. Thanks for sharing :]
