Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.
Rebel Heart (Dust Lands #2) by Moira Young.
Release Date: October 30th, 2012
It seemed so simple: Defeat the Tonton, rescue her kidnapped brother, Lugh, and then order would be restored to Saba’s world. Simplicity, however, has proved to be elusive. Now, Saba and her family travel west, headed for a better life and a longed-for reunion with Jack. But the fight for Lugh’s freedom has unleashed a new power in the dust lands, and a formidable new enemy is on the rise.
What is the truth about Jack? And how far will Saba go to get what she wants? In this much-anticipated follow-up to the riveting Blood Red Road, a fierce heroine finds herself at the crossroads of danger and destiny, betrayal and passion.
After reading Blood Red Road and absolutely loving it (it was one of my favourites of 2011), I'm definitely super excited to read this one. And the cover. *queue fangirling*. Not too sure about the title though. Blood Red Road sounded way more bad ass.
Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza.
Release Date: March 12th, 2013
Pitched as a "Bourne Identity"-type sci-fi thriller about a teenage girl who discovers that she is a Mobile Intel Life-like Android, an experiment in artificial intelligence created by the U.S. government, and her scientist mother, who kidnapped her when she was found to have human emotions.
Okay, I would buy this one for its cover alone. It's gorgeous. The blurb sounds interestingg as well, though, and it's sure to be action-packed if its being compared to "Bourne Identity." Also, who doesn't love sci-fi?!
