"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming novels that we're all eagerly anticipating.
Hello people of the book world aka best people in the world (don't listen to them, flattery gets you everywhere;) )!
So, this is number 4 I think? Yup, fourth "Waiting On" Wednesday, here it is...
Series: Breaking Point (Article 5 #2)
Expected Publication: February 5th 2013 by Tor Teen
Summary (from Goodreads):
After faking their deaths to escape from prison, Ember Miller and Chase Jennings have only one goal: to lay low until the Federal Bureau of Reformation forgets they ever existed.
Near-celebrities now for the increasingly sensationalized tales of their struggles with the government, Ember and Chase are recognized and taken in by the Resistance—an underground organization working to systematically take down the government. At headquarters, all eyes are on the sniper, an anonymous assassin taking out FBR soldiers one by one. Rumors are flying about the sniper’s true identity, and Ember and Chase welcome the diversion….
Until the government posts its most-wanted list, and their number one suspect is Ember herself.
Orders are shoot to kill, and soldiers are cleared to fire on suspicion alone. Suddenly Ember can’t even step onto the street without fear of being recognized, and “laying low” is a joke. Even members of the Resistance are starting to look at her sideways.
With Chase urging her to run, Ember must decide: Go into hiding…or fight back?
Article 5 got a lot of mixed reviews but I was one of the ones that really did enjoy the book! I thought it was great and I'm not actually that easy to please when it comes to dystopian books, I absolutely adore dystopian and post apocalyptic novels which means I expect a whole lot when it comes to them. I didn't write a review for Article 5 but I remember really enjoying the way Simmons made the world so believable and the tension and history she showed between the two main characters.
I can't wait for the sequel... Is there anything you particularly can't wait for? Please do feel free to leave the name and author of the book or a link to your own "Waiting On" Wednesday in the comments, I'd love to see them. :)
