Renegade (The Elysium Chronicles, #1)Waiting on... a stand-alone/new series:

Renegade by J.A. Souders (Tor Teen, November 13th 2012)

Since the age of three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has been trained to be Daughter of the People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium. Selected from hundreds of children for her ideal genes all her life she’s thought that everything was perfect; her world. Her people. The Law.

But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into their secluded little world, she’s forced to come to a startling realization: everything she knows is a lie. Her memories have been altered. Her mind and body aren’t under her own control. And the person she knows as Mother is a monster.

Together with Gavin she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb... and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all. 

Why I'm waiting on this: I love the colours and the design of this cover, it really stands out. plus, psycho mothers and underwater worlds? Yes please!



Asunder (Newsoul, #2)Waiting on... a sequel

Asunder by Jodi Meadows - Katherine Tegan, Jan 29th 2012

Ana has always been the only one. Asunder. Apart. But after Templedark, when many residents of Heart were lost forever, some hold Ana responsible for the darksouls–and the newsouls who may be born in their place.

Many are afraid of Ana’s presence, a constant reminder of unstoppable changes and the unknown. When sylph begin behaving differently toward her and people turn violent, Ana must learn to stand up not only for herself but for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
Ana was told that nosouls can’t love. But newsouls? More than anything, she wants to live and love as an equal among the citizens of Heart, but even when Sam professes his deepest feelings, it seems impossible to overcome a lifetime of rejection.

Why I'm waiting on this: Another gorgeous cover. I really enjoyed Incarnate so I can't wait for this!



What are you waiting on? Drop me a comment and I'll call by!

  56. Sounds like there's some neat genre-blending going on in Renegade! I haven't yet read Jodi Meadows' first book Incarnate, but I've heard some good things. Always the problem of too many books to read and too little time, LOL :D
