Waiting on Wednesday {28}

8.15.2012
"Waiting on Wednesday " is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

We're a little late, but . . . blame school. Pictures had to be taken. It was bad. :P

This week, Zoey's waiting on:

The Farm by Emily McKay
Expected publication: December 4th 2012 by Berkley Trade

Life was different in the Before: before the Ticks began devouring humans in a deadly swarm across America; before the surviving young people were rounded up and quarantined “for their own protection.” These days, we know what those quarantines are—holding pens where human blood is turned into more food for the Ticks. Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other…

And when trust is a thing of the past, escape is nearly impossible.

Lily and her twin sister Mel have a plan. Though Mel can barely communicate, her autism helps her notice things no one else notices—like the portion of electrical fence that gets turned off every night. Getting across won’t be easy, but as Lily gathers what they need to escape, a familiar face appears out of nowhere, offering to help…

Carter was a schoolmate of Lily’s in the Before. Managing to evade capture until now, he has valuable knowledge of the outside world. But like everyone on the Farm, Carter has his own agenda, and he knows that behind the Ticks is an even more dangerous threat to the human race...
 
It sounds totally creepy ;) I'm excited. It's been a long time since I've read anything like this.

Megan's waiting on:

The Diviners by Libba Bray
Expected publication: September 18th 2012 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers


Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is pos-i-toot-ly thrilled. New York is the city of speakeasies, shopping, and movie palaces! Soon enough, Evie is running with glamorous Ziegfield girls and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is Evie has to live with her Uncle Will, curator of The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult--also known as "The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies."

When a rash of occult-based murders comes to light, Evie and her uncle are right in the thick of the investigation. And through it all, Evie has a secret: a mysterious power that could help catch the killer--if he doesn't catch her first. 

Let's be honest: who isn't waiting on this one?

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Leave a link and one of us will be sure to drop by! :)

  3. Hi! Thanks for featuring The Farm in your WoW! What a great honor.
    And, Gwen, they're not actual bugs. Ticks is slang for the blood-sucking monsters in the book.
