Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Our Wednesday Selections this week are….

Insurgent by Veronica Roth: Book Cover Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Release Date: May 1, 2012


One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris’s initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth’s much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.

Illuminated by Erica Orloff: Book CoverIlluminated by Erica Orloff

Release Date: December 8, 2011


Some loves are not made to last . . . Like Romeo and Juliet, Heloise and Abelard were doomed from the start, and their romance was destined to pass into history. Yet when sixteen-year-old Callie Martin discovers a diary hidden within an antique book, their story – and hers – takes on another life. For the diary leads Callie to the brilliant and handsome August, who is just as mysterious as the secret the diary hides. Their attraction is undeniable. As the two hunt down the truth behind the diary – and that of Heloise and Abelard’s ancient romance – their romance becomes all-consuming. But Callie knows it can’t last . . . love never does. Will their love that burns as bright as a shooting star flame out, or will these star-crossed lovers be able to defy history?

Those are my waiting on Wednesday choices – what are you waiting on?

  1. I can’t wait for Insurgent! i was hesitant to read Divergent because it was compared to the Hunger Games. I loved the Hunger Games but hate when books are compared. I loved Divergent!

  2. Both ones I want to read – just have to get to Divergent first!!!

    Our WOW is at Book Sake.

  3. I just finished Divergent a few days ago and I’m super excited about Insurgent. Loved it. Illuminated looks really interesting as well 🙂 Great picks!

  4. Illuminated looks like it’ll be a good one!

    I haven’t read any of the other series; although I keep seeing such good things about it – maybe I should actually grab a copy of the first one…
