Waiting on Wednesday (85)

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

My pick this week:



Perfect Ruin
 Lauren DeStefano
Series: The Internment Chronicles #1
Genre: YA Sci Fi
Publication date: October 1st 2013
by Simon & Schuster BfYR


On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan's older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose.


Whoa this sounds really cool and different for a dystpian/sci-fi/whatevers. I like the murder mystery included in it, too!


What are you waiting on?

  19. I really like the little girl on the cover with the tree in the background. It seems so mysterious and cool. Sounds great too! I've never read anything by DeStefano so this would be a good chance for me to read something she wrote :) Great pick!

  34. I remember I liked Wither when it first came out. Then I kind of lost interest in the series. This one looks good and I really like that cover. A little different than most YA covers.

  35. I just stumbled on to this one for the first time a few days ago myself - it sounds really promising doesn't it?! I haven't read her Chemical Garden books though so I'd have no idea what to expect but I hear her prose is pretty sweet so this could be EPIC. Nice pick!

  36. You and Blythe are twins! I'm excited for this one. Clouds are epic!
