Waiting on Wednesday #7

Posted November 21, 2012 by Kara in Waiting on Wednesday / 26 Comments

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where we post upcoming releases we are looking forward to.
Another week, another Top Ten Tuesday topic I don’t care for. So for one more week, I will be participating in Waiting on Wednesday. Then it’s back to TTT for awhile. 
So what did I pick THIS week? Actually, this was the book I was looking for last week but I couldn’t remember what it was called!

For the teens at The Haven, the outside world, just beyond the towering stone wall that surrounds the premises, is a dangerous unknown. It has always been this way, ever since the hospital was established in the year 2020. But The Haven is more than just a hospital; it is their home. It is all they know. Everything is strictly monitored: education, exercise, food, and rest. The rules must be followed to keep the children healthy, to help control the Disease that has cast them as Terminals, the Disease that claims limbs and lungs—and memories.

But Shiloh is different; she remembers everything. Gideon is different, too. He dreams of a cure, of rebellion against the status quo. What if everything they’ve been told is a lie? What if The Haven is not the safe place it claims to be? And what will happen if Shiloh starts asking dangerous questions?

Yeah, yeah. It’s another dystopia. I don’t care! I want it!! What do you think? Is this one on your list? Leave me a comment and I will come visit your WOW posts! Until next time I participate in this meme, happy reading!

  1. I want it too, especially since Jenni’s read a couple of Williams’ books in the last couple months and LOVED them.

    Also, Stephanie, this is why I love you. I am so not over dystopians either! I AM over the bad ones, but I will KEEP TRYING.

  2. Yes! This one is on my list to. I love dystopians, though it seems as if authors are having more and more trouble pulling them off. I think this one could be really really good and Carol Lynch Williams freaking ROCKS!

  3. This sounds so good! I have to say, I had mixed feelings about the one book of hers I read before, but the writing was very good. And it had a chilling scene in it, too, so maybe we’ll get more of that in this! Thanks for featuring this. 🙂

  4. I saw this one featured on a WoW post a month or two ago and dismissed it, but now having read the synopsis, it’s definitely on my radar. Somehow, I go into every dystopia wildly hoping it’ll be incredible and won’t let me down, so let’s hope this one delivers! 😉 Awesome pick this week, Kara! 😀

  5. Love the what-ifs that are posed in the synopsis-wonder what is going to happen and what secrets will be unraveled so I think this is a great teaser! Thanks for sharing.

    Heh I don’t think I’m completely tired of dystopians yet! Admittedly, they are all blurring together but I still find myself drawn to them. 🙂 This one sounds great! I haven’t read anything by this author before but I look forward to this one.
