Waiting on Wednesday #4

Today I have two books for you that I am waiting on. One is young adult and the other is adult fiction. This is the way my blog generally runs, and I would eventually like to get it to a place where I review half ya and half adult fiction. Unfortunately, it has been a lot harder than I thought it would. There are way more ya books that I want to read and I am having a heck of a time getting publishers to send me adult fiction. But, I will keep working on it.
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release Date: January 3rd, 2012
Pages: 400
Genre: Young Adult, Post-Apocalyptic
Summary:

Exiled from her comfortable home, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland – called the Death Shop – are slim. Violent energy storms can strike suddenly, and even the very air she breathes might kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild, dangerous – a savage. He’s also her only hope.

Because Aria alone holds the key to his redemption, Perry needs her, too. 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.




Publisher: Random House
Release Date: February 21st, 2012
Pages: 480
Genre: Adult, Historical Fiction
Summary:

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Dante Club, comes a completely fresh take on the historical thriller, set at the intersection of science and history, as the men and women of the first graduating class of MIT must avert a dire threat against their city.

Boston, 1868: On a fog-shrouded, moonless spring night in Boston Harbor, seven ships–schooners, pleasure steamers, and steamships–mysteriously crash in a massive, fiery wreck. The devastation is later complicated by the discovery that every compass recovered from the wreckage had spun wildly as the ships veered inexplicably off course. In an attempt to solve the mystery, investigators visit the newly founded Massachusetts Institute of Technology, whose fifteen-member inaugural class is about to graduate. As the harbor disaster is followed by further strange calamities striking the city, Marcus Mansfield and his fellow classmates including Ellen Swallow, the sole female student at MIT–will find themselves in the position of being the only people qualified to save the city and its inhabitants from what seems to be the work of a madman.


So those are my two picks for this week. What do you think?

  1. Both of these sound great! I have Under The Never Sky on my TBR list as well it sounds really exciting. I’m loving all these post-apocalyptic novels lately. Getting ready for 2012 and everything 😛

    Hi there, new followe here! What a cute blog design, I am going to grab one of your buttons for my site too 😉

    Under the Never Sky sounds like it is going to be an awesome story– and I LOVE this cover! Ugh, but have you seen the OTHER one? In my opinion it is really weird and ugly lol. Oh well! It’s the writing inside that counts!

    You can check out my WoW post for this week a the link below 😉
