Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It showcases each blogger's most anticipated books. This week, my pick is Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.

Summary: "Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—nicknamed The Death Shop—are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms eventually will. In this dystopia, even the very air she breathes could kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild, dangerous—a savage. He’s also her only hope.

Perry needs Aria, too. She alone holds the key to his redemption. And their unlikely alliance will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

Debut author Veronica Rossi is accumulating fans from all over the globe—the book has already sold to more than twenty countries. It’s not surprising that foreign rights for this title have been flying off the shelf. It’s a tantalizing romance in any language."


Why I Can't Wait:I am a huge fan of dystopia. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite genres, so when I first saw Under The Never Sky on Goodreads, I immediately added it to my To Be Read list. Then I saw the release date. Wow, that's a long ways away. But the summary sounds amazing, and the cover is simple yet gorgeous. Why can't this come out sooner?

Expected publication: February 7th 2012 by HarperTeen

  10. I've seen this a couple times before and even though it says its a Dystopian it doesn't sound like one. It makes me think of the world maybe five thousand years are more after it has ended where a new world has been created and the old one completely forgotten? I don't know if you've seen The Time Machine but the protagonist accidentally goes probably millions of years in the future after the world was destroyed and recreated and there are completely new civilizations? Something like that is what this setting reminds me of.
